Chiang Mai News reported that Thai vehicle tax can now be renewed without time wasting visits to the Department of Land Transport. 
 
They said that it was good news for the convenience of Thai consumers.
 
Details can be found at www.dlte-serv.in.th or www.dlt.go.th
 
Applicants should register their details there and complete the online form. 
 
Then choose "pay tax".
 
Applicants must be in possession of valid "por ror bor" insurance and had checks for seven year old vehicles. 
 
Counter service payments can be made via participating banks that include Bangkok Bank, Thanachart, TMB, Krung Sri Ayuthaya and Krung Thai.
 
Credit card payments can be made via Bangkok Bank and Krung Sri Ayuthaya. 
 
Tax discs will be sent within 7 days for a charge of 40 baht. 
 
Chiang Mai News added that soon the service will be expanded to allow motorists to renew three months in advance. 
 
A Thaivisa reporter tried both websites without success.

Let's hope the insurance companies will also cooperate, because now it's a pain in the A.. to get the insurance papers in time.

That takes weeks!

Are you talking about Govt Insurance or the additional 1st class because it's only Govt Insurance required for the Tax 'square' which is easily got in 5 minutes at DLT offices or testing stations.

I just took the motorbike to a recognised inspection shop 10 minutes from where I live. Ask for government insurance and registration paper, cost 800 baht. Pick up the paperwork in 2 days. Why visit the DLT and waste hours?

I've never gone to the DLT.

I go to the insurance office. They do the vehicle checks issue the insurance and apply for the tax document. The tax comes 3 days later and I collect it from the office.

Interesting...

 

One would think that with more than a 11 million unpaid fines related to bad driving remaining uncollected, the DLT would also implement the requirement to clear all the unpaid fines & penalties prior to the renewal of each years tax disk?

 

No doubt once the computer nerds at Chaeng Watthana Government Complex have got the database integration between all government departments and ministries sorted out, then this will be on the cards.

 

Big brother is coming soon :wai:

Will the DLT check for unpaid fines, or has that idea been scrapped?

That is how they try and get the bad Somchai's

Likewise.  Local inspection garage only 5 mins away does it all. Takes all of 10 mins and collect the tax label in aroun 3 or 4 days.

 

If you have 1st class insurance it probably also includes government insurance.  Your insurance company should give you a document with a 'tear off' slip which you present when renewing your tax and the cost of government tax is taken off.

I am not sure if my 1st class insurance covers the government insurance, will have to check my papers, but thanks for the heads up.:thumbsup:

If it does, you should have a sheet of paper with a tear off piece at the bottom. That's the bit the DLT want.
