  2. Just to clarify part of your statement motorbike liability insurance Before you do your Road Tax Or Registration You have to purchase the Road Insurance which is compulsory before you can pay for your Road Tax Or Registration Because this is different from most countries the way they do it This covers a basic Personal Accident Only Insurance not covered for your own bike repairs If you need a Compulsory Insurance this can bought at several Places You can incorporate your Road Insurance with your own accident Cover I found this out recently when i registered my bike after the 1 year from new I an still learning how the system works
  3. Thanks for your experences Yes some people have the habit of getting off Topic This will never change as we do not have a Real Moderator in Chiang Mai I did notice when i did my Visa Extension that some people took much longer than others Maybe its from the country of Origin As the lady after me and myself were done so quick Yes as time goings some days can be busier than others

In Thailand this is differant If you were at the Xpat Long Stay Seminar You would know That is what the Tourist Minister has called us Because Xpats come under her Department We are Long Stay Tourists Not Immigrants as in most countries in the western world This is what the Thailand Government has called us We are unable to get citizenship in Thailand End of story
