Tax Disc Fell Off - Tax Disc Receipt will pass ?

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, my tax disc came off my bike without noticing. Will the receipt for it pass at helmet checks

until I buy a replacement ?

I doubt it, as checkpoint cops will use any excuse to rut money out your wallet.

My son had this happen just a while ago. He went to the local police station and notified them of the loss. They made out some statement which he took to the LTD office and because his next tax/insurance was due soon just let things happen. He only went a couple of weeks with no number plate and was never stopped.

Get a police lost tax/disc report and take it to your DLT.

Thanks, I never knew you had to do that when applying for a replacement...so annoying, it was 2 weeks into the new tax disc year ! Think I'll just clear tape next one on the body vs those oblong clear holders which can get vibrated off wherever they get screwed on....

put some "superglue"  on the threads   its cheaper and more easily found than "lock tight"

Yes, a good colour copy of tax disk, and they won't know the difference...

Don't see the connection between a No. Plate and a Tax disc?

I lost mine one time too and had to go to so much trouble to get a replacement I swore I would never stick it on the outside again.

  Last week I was stopped while in an awful hurry and was asked to show it...I couldn't find it under the seat. (my Ex's motorbike). He gave me a ticket and told me it would be 1000 Bt. fine and kept my licence. When I got to the police station to pay the fine I actually found the tax disc ...taxed up to next year. I went into the police station, they still wanted 400 Bt...I talked them down to 200 Bt (at the same time he asked me what I thought about Thai police and kept laughing).

   PS...something to watch out for. About 4 years ago I was done for no tax (Ex's motorbike again) outside Soi 9 police station.. he checked my insurance and seen that was ok. I walked straight inside to pay the fine and was told it would be 1000 Bt. I wouldn't pay it just for tax. I sent my G/F a pic. of the fine and she said they had done me for "no tax and insurance".. I went up again to the counter and showed them my insurance and they dropped the fine to 400 Bt.

   So, beware, if you are done for tax ..make sure you are now being done for insurance as well. Have somebody check the fine paper.

I'm pretty sure that your insurance is invalid without current road tax.

We all know that insurance companies will look for a reason not to pay out after an accident.  Not having valid tax makes it easy for them.
