    car tax

    I need to clarify the question of car tax

    1... is the car tax (road tax) based on the number of seats or the number of doors on the motor

    2,,, is it now illegal to carry passenger behind the driver in the trucks with the forward opening doors (rear doors) I think called 2 plus 2

    ive been told that even trucks with two doors and bench seats behind the driver are now illegal, can this be true?

    depending on your reply's means I go cap In hand or I told you so
    thanks in advance
    life is what happens to us while we are making other plans

    If no seat belts are fitted. True.

    It is done purely on engine size. I think I'm wrong.

    Edit:-
    New Excise Tax Rates on Cars

    • Print page

    From 1 January 2016 onward, the Excise Department will impose new tax rates on cars computed on the basis of the rate of carbon dioxide emissions, instead of the engine capacity. This will result in higher prices for cars.

    The new structure of excise tax will support cars which comply with Phase 2 of the Eco Car Project, as these cars will save fuel and be more environmentally friendly. For these cars, the excise tax rate will fall from 17% to 14%, but the excise tax on a private car with an engine capacity of 1,780 cc to 2,000 cc will increase by a range of 3% to 10%.
    For pick-up trucks which have a rate of carbon dioxide emissions over 200 grams per kilometre, the excise tax will increase to 15%. Therefore, pick-up trucks with four doors will increase in price by 15,000 to 25,000 baht per vehicle next year.
    For pick-up framed passenger vehicles (PPVs) with an engine capacity no higher than 3,250 cc, the tax rate will increase from 20% to 25%. For PPVs with carbon dioxide emissions over 200 grams per kilometre, the excise tax will be 30%.

    Thanks to the OP for asking the question as I have a few about the car costs in Thailand.

    I own a 4 Door Toyota

    How much is the registration? You might even call it road Tax ... no idea what they call it in the States.

    What are the other Government costs, are there any applicable?

    I'm asking because my extended Thai Family pay all that and I just reimburse them.

    Don't think I'm getting ripped ... just Fact Checking

    ---

    Oh, I don't have '1st Class Insurance'
    Yes, I know

    What does the 'other' insurance cost?
    Basically '3rd party' insurance which covers you if you hit the other guy and it's your fault.
    (I don't know what else to call it)
    • How much is the registration?
    • What does the 'other' insurance cost?
    .
    Thanks in Advance
    Perspective is everything ... it's the difference between going through an ordeal or going through an adventure..

    645 Baht I believe. Covers medical treatment (limited) at an hospital. Motor accidents victims are not treated free a government hospitals. Neither are people who attempt suicide.

    He is asking about annual road tax, not excise tax.

    OP, road tax is based on seating positions with seat belts.

    Take no notice of me. From Fondles post it seems I'm mistaken on what tax you're talking about. Sorry if I've confused anyone.
