unable to register old M/C

Recommended Posts

OK i brought a M/C Honda click years ago from a guy who went back to the UK, when he left his visa was finished, i have all relevant documents, but because his visa had expired, LTO would not register it to me, i argued that he is not coming back and i have no way to contact him, 'Tough poo!' or words to that effect. It is now so long it needs to be re-registered. The only option i can see is to take out a private insurance and drive un-registered and pay the fine when need be. I don't want to sell it as spares, so any other options anyone ??

Why didn't you pay the tax? You could have done everything as normal with the bike, besides of transferring it.

If the registration has now completely expired this will get much more difficult.

 

The easiest way to solve this is probably to go to a "tor ror or" shop and ask if they can sort this out, maybe somebody there knows somebody who can sort this out for a fee. I have no idea what it could cost and if it's worth it.

The "tor ror or" shops will have this sign there are usually quite a few of them arround.

What you need is his passport copy and the page in his passport that has the stamp of leaving Thailand.

OP said it has to be "re-registered". If you don't pay the tax for a few years, i think it's 3 years, then the green book and license plates became invalid and you have to get new ones.

Give it to a girlfriend, she won't care about having tax or insurance.
