What sort of a person hands over their passport to a motorcycle hire company

Well, hate to break it to you, but having 13 digit Thai number on a pink card does not make you less of a foreigner nor does wipe out the requirement to register you with immigration.

Having permanent residency actually does wipe out the requirement to register him with immigration, because this is only required for aliens who stay in Thailand temporary.

No it does not. check again, perm residency only gives you the right to remain permanently, without having to renew or obtain visa. It  does not make you less of a foreigner residing in Thailand

You should check it again 😉

Quote

The housemaster, the owner or the possessor of the residence, or the hotel manager where the alien, receiving permission to stay temporary in the Kingdom has stayed, must notify the competent official of the Immigration Office located in the same area with that hours, dwelling place or hotel, within 24 hours from the time of arrival of the alien concerned. If there is no Immigration Office located in that area, the local police official for that area must be notified.

The OP sounds a bit distressed. Maybe immigration has the spotlight on him or his business.
I always check in with a neat copy of my passport. Then they usually ask if they can keep the copy. I reply politely: if your copy machine is broken you can, off they go and make a copy of my copy.
Of course I do have my passport with me as well.

where does it support your previous point that perm residency does not require registering with immigration? or where did i say temp stay did not require it?

 

I am confused

The law says the hotel has to report an alien (TM30) who received permission to stay in Thailand temporary.

There is now law which says a hotel has to report an alien who has permanent residency in Thailand.

We were indeed fined a few years ago, and substantially. I've yet to find a gobby Thai DL holder that can explain to me why our hotel should subsidise his/her decision to travel without a passport. Why I'm posting this topic, maybe a few of them will read it and wake up, because they all seem to wind up in my front of house to exorcise their attitude. After having it explained to them, and them rejecting the explanation, the conversation usually goes south from there.

So in other words you are guessing.

 

So let me tell you as a hotel owner, every single foreigner staying in a hotel must be reported to immigration.Foreigner status is irrelevant, the only relevant factor is that its a foreigner

 

Directives received direct from Immigration.

 

PS, whats more, the electronic form has perm residency as an option when ticking the status or visa type

Just on an unrelated note, not wishing to drag off topic. . . but 'Permenent Residency' where you're still forced to get a re-entry permit. This is just psuedo-PR IMO.
