    Purchasing Motor Vehicles in LOS

    Somewhere down the track I can see the need to do this, and have read the following article Thailand - Buying or Selling a Car | ExpatFocus.com .

    It would seem for a Motor Bike a a Tourist Visa is adequate, but for a Car you require a valid passport, a non-immigrant visa and a work permit or letter of residence which has been issued by the Immigration Department or Embassy

    As down the track, someone could be in LOS upto 6 months on TV's, is there any options to get around these requirements, or a way to get them.

    Be also good to hear from anyone who has gone down this path with a purchase of a vehicle in LOS, though not sure many here would have as most of us are newbies as such.

    I know KR has brought a car in LOS not too long ago and from memory he went through what was required to buy it in his Kamala Kapers Thread. Why wouldn't you (or whoever was going to buy a car) just get your TG to buy it for you are not worry about the hassel?
