Re: Beware if you have a Red Lic. Plate

the fact that you have never received one from the dealer just proves my statement yesterday. If the dealers don't give out this log book, then I don't believe it has anything to do with not wanting to pay for legitimate red plates. I believe it would be because they know people just aren't going t...

Re: What Do Mainland Chinese Bring to Thailand?

I'd be much happier if they would bring 1 from Column A, 2 from Column B . . .

Re: Beware if you have a Red Lic. Plate

Since living in Thailand I have had three cars, two motorbikes, and a pickup truck. This topic is the first time I have ever heard anything about a logbook. I've never seen anything about a logbook mentioned on any other web sites either. All I know is I've never had one. I don't know anyone who has...

Re: Yet Another Immigration Question

With all the questions being asked, along with uncertainty and confusion, my suggestion is to go to immigration a couple weeks or more before it's time to renew the visa and ask them. Personally, I'd be a lot more confident in what immigration tells me than I would on what I read on a message board....

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

I have mixed feelings about it. On the one hand I don't like the fact they are being exploited. On the other hand they are getting opportunities they never could have dreamed about, including Thai citizenship for the boys who were essentially stateless. I don't see anything negative about those oppo...

Re: Beware if you have a Red Lic. Plate

the current wait for a white plate is approx. 90 days. 90 DAYS?!?!? I wonder why it takes so long. There must be one hell of a backlog if it takes that long. What do they expect people to do in the meantime? I expected them to pay the fine-this they did. And you can't drive out of your home provinc...

Re: Beware if you have a Red Lic. Plate

Initially I was going to say that this is a load of rubbish. In my opinion, what goes on with the red plates is a load of rubbish. I can't make sense out of the logic (or lack thereof) of it. If it is illegal to drive a car with the red plates, what do they expect people to do, buy a car or motorbi...

Re: Beware if you have a Red Lic. Plate

The whole red plate system is a big scandalous mess. It's long been a way to avoid paying excise tax on expensive cars, and often to cover vehicle theft. Many of the red plates you see are counterfeit anyway. I think that may depend on the source of the plate. When I bought my car, the Toyota deale...
