From this month on, drivers with brand new cars and red licence plates should be aware of a tough new law concerning the registration of their vehicles.

Last week Sanit Promwong, the Department of Land Transport’s (DLT), announced the tough measure, with a fine of up to 10,000 baht for those who fail to register a car within 30 days of receiving it from a seller.

The red plates are intended only to be used by new owners during the vehicle registration process. Once the registration is complete, motorists are required to switch to normal white plates. This used to be a time-consuming process, but now Mr Sanit claimed that it takes only one day.

if you buy a new car with red plates  legally I am only allowed to drive during daylight hours and in the province the plates are issued, until the White plates are available. Anybody know anything further on this?   100% Correct.

I got done 1000 baht in
Sattahip on red plates registered in Bangkok!
