Five Year Motorcycle (Vehicle) Inspection

Recommended Posts

So what is the deal with this? Documents required? What happens if you don't do it? 

 

I just did my five year registration in March and they did not ask for anything. Then I heard about this five year inspection. 

 

Do I go to the transportation office and say what to the nice ladies who are all hoping I will leave? "Look my motorcycle. See. Perfect! You want to ride with me?"

This year I saw them refuse to do a test on a Mercedes Benz   because the headlights didn't work !

the owner asked for some leeway but the testing staff said he couldn't help as the whole inspection process was videoed and recorded along with test results onto the computer..which I suppose is linked to the DLT computer ???

So they do seem to be getting slightly more strict but as you say it takes a lot to fail  and the standards to pass are/seem very low to start with  not like in European countries which I think are to strict now.

they can do everything for you for a small fee  or just get the inspection done..then you need  to get the compulsory insurance and then take  green book and insurance certificate to the DLT and pay  for Tax  they will print a tax disc and update the green book..

All this is included in the 60 baht fee. The company will take care of everything. Green book will be ready the day after the 'inspection'.

Depends upon the shop you use as to how quick the green book will be returned    60 baht fee is for the bike "inspection"

getting the tax disk and updated book  is normally an extra charge,  but if you found a place that does it all for 60 baht then good for you..

Concur.

Everything is recorded.

It really is a simple test, basics should work, and they are generally helpful, knowledgeable staff that run the place.

For the owners i think they are a little goldmine too.

Visual check of lights, simple sit on brake tests, noise and some exhaust test.

Certainly does take a lot to fail.

 

I had a brake light out (the rear brake was making the light come on but the front brake was not) and my indicators were held on by a combination of cable ties and duct tape and it still passed!

I always ask the shop where I bought and service my bike to do this.

This year it was 5 years old and they told me they need to bring the bike to the inspection.

I don't even know if they charged anything extra, it was as usual a couple of hundred THB for service, tax renewal, etc.

My small bike has a medium loud aftermarket exhaust and other people in this forum mentioned a couple of month ago that was a problem for them with their bikes.

For me it was never mentioned. And that is one of the reasons why I let the shop do these things. Nothing to worry about, no hassle, they just get it done.

the usual "pay and okay" system in thailand...

I drive to the sign, park my bike, give them the green book.

They fiddle around for ten minutes, give me insurance and a bit of paper in the green book and ask for 410bht.

Then I go to the tax office, hand them the book, they ask for 101bht and give me a tax disk.

 

Never seen anyone fail the inspection.

Car did fail once but only because government officers were checking at the time, too smokey, took the car to the next place and it passed.
