Bring car over from UK


LaaMok

Recommended Posts

One of my friends brought his UK car here and jumped through all the loop holes to avoid tax.

 

30,000 baht for delivery

 

My dad seems to think that you still need UK tax and MOT

 

what are your thoughts on this?

yes, but I have a feeling the DVLA wouldnt accept a SORN for a car being used, (even if its outside the UK) and if it still needs to be taxed, it would still need to get an MOT to get the tax?

The SORN is to say its not been used on a uk road,i don,t know if they have an MOT scheme in thailand

I think there is a section you should fill out to say exported. Uk tax and MOT will be meaningless in Thailand.

Once the vehicle is permanently exported you are free of all UK obligations.

 

30,000THB sounds cheap but there are some good deal to be had on otherwise empty containers returning from Europe to Asia.

 

I think that the requirements at the Thai end need to be checked thoroughly. Not exactly the same but I have seen many Brits try and be 'clever' and bypass the system with English cars in Spain only to find it comes back to haunt them once they are involved in an accident.

You can SORN any car. The only way the DVLA will be involved is if a SORNed car gets picked up by a roadside camera in th UK.

 

You also need valid insurance to get taxed nowadays, as well as a current MOT but as others have said can see no reason you need valid UK road tax to drive in Thailand.
