Unregistered Bikes

Motorcycle Insurance – Unregistered Bikes:

3rd party insurance is compulsory in Thailand, but there is a challenge to overcome if your bike does not have a registration plate as it is “technically illegal” for it to be on the road.

The solution is the Compulsory Third Party Liability (CTPL) insurance which offers a (very) low 3rd Party coverage

The Process

You will require the following documentation;

1. Purchase receipt which establishes provenance – Seller / Buyer, Make, Model, Year of Manufacture, date of purchase, and your address etc.

2. Chassis and Frame number tracings – most motorcycle shops can do this for you, if you are unable to do it yourself.

3. Photos of the bike

4. Copy of your passport

The fee is dependent on size of the bike (maximum 646 Baht), and you are issued with a receipt and a piece of paper to “show the police” in the event of an accident.


· 3rd party bodily injury: 50,000 baht per person.

· 3rd party death: 100,000 baht per person
