Road Tax Renewal In Pattaya

Recommended Posts

2018Aug27VehicleRoadTaxPattaya

 

On Sat 25th August I renewed my Vehicle Road Tax at the Central dept. Store Beach Road end Ground Floor, Very quick and efficient.

Items required are the Vehicle Log/Registration Book.

( I believe they will even do it with a Photocopy of the book for those on Hire Purchase.

 

New Insurance ( Only the Mandatory government Insurance Certificate is required is required to be shown.)

 

Test certificate for older vehicles Car or bike. (Now there are many testing stations around the town)

 

The two ladies there who were very helpful were informing everybody that they were moving upstairs to the 6th Floor starting from 01 Sept. They said it was a space at the same end of the building ie Beach Road end.

“Don’t shoot the messenger”

 

Info

This service is only available on a Saturday from approx. 0900 hrs onwards, it’s the same service that was at BigC South Pattaya.

You can do it ahead of time you DO NOT have to wait until it expires.

This service does it while you wait normally 5 mins.

 

At any other time you can also go to any of the testing stations who do the renewal for a small fee, normally back the next day pickup after 1600 hrs.

No...go to either AA insurance opposite Big C or at one of the testing stations.

To get tax you need to show mandatory government insurance and if older than 5 years for a bike or 7 years for a car a "certificate of road worthiness"

Beware the certificate for road worthiness is getting far harder, when we had our car tested he even switched the lights on. As well as testing the horn . Oh he also got our tax. :)

Yes they where there today  next to the Pizza company  6th floor   Saturdays 11.00 - 19.00P_20181020_112057.thumb.jpg.c9bd106f3b894e9ab8c0f0076fa9af27.jpg  I checked the old location downstairs and the whole "Asian Bazaar"  corner is boarded up

with no sign to say what's happening there    the "laser paintball" place is still open.

Actually it is getting harder   today I went to have my old car inspected,

they tested the lights and (new) alignment of headlights , the brakes and exhaust emission /noise

obviously its not as rigorous as it could be and thankfully not as rigorous as a UK  MOT

(overboard IMHO)

 

There was a Mercedes Benz  to be checked right after mine..but the owner of the test center  had to refuse to even start the test as Benz's headlights didn't work...he couldn't even fudge the test as its all recorded/photographed which goes into the computer.

 

He also mentioned that  vehicles converted to run on gas  (LPG,CNG ) will soon have to have the gas installation tested (at specialist center) every year instead of the now every 5 years.

 

So got my "MOT"  220 baht   and compulsory government insurance 640 baht  😄

they where very busy but worked fast so didn't wait too long

and on Saturday off to "Central" for the Tax disc...

Yes, well next day is rather quick !   which station do you use ?

takes about a week usually because they won't want to be going to the DLT office every day..and you still have to go back to collect it from them..

so I'd rather use that trip to go to Central instead.
