Yes, they do residence certificates at the bottom right end of the main room.  They are supposedly free and take a week or two but they usually try to scam you out of 300B for a fast-track same day service, for which you will never get a receipt.

The yellow book is not accepted as proof of residence for foreigners by the Pattaya land transportation office, though I didnt know that you needed proof of residence at all to sell a vehicle. I have no idea how it works if you are selling to someone in another province.

Yes you need a proof of residence letter. it is annotated for selling or buying a vehicle.

I need a certificate of residency but I will enter the country with the 30 day visa stamped in passport on arrival - is that possible or do I need at least a 60 day visa ?

This is not a residential visa - it is visa exempt for up to a stay for a period not exceeding 30days. There is no provision for extension beyond the 30days. It is only available to citizens of specified countries. At present as Yorkshire is still within the UK you are covered , However, post Brexit the demands for an independent Yorkshire Republic may prevail. I know it is a crazy idea - but so is Brexit!!

And that answers his question how?

People have gotten a resident certificate in the past on a visa exempt; does anyone know if still possible given the recent "crackdowns"?

Should be no problem getting one via an agent, if you don’t mind paying the extra. I wouldn’t use them for visas but for other paperwork, in certain circumstances, I would. Last time I asked at Visa to Britain next door to Immigration it was 1000 baht.*

It’s been a bit hit and miss getting one from Immigration, from what I hear. 

*Edit: should have said, this was with no visa just a 30-day visa exempt stamp.

I just realized that I still have a copy from a Resident Certificate I made 26 th of Novemer which I used for a driver license, would the  copy of that be enough to register a motorbike in my name or do I need a original ?
