    Sabaydi eveybody !

    Could you tell me please : When one sells a motorbike, when can we find the papers to fulfill ?
    When the motorbike is sold with papers on the name of a Lao to a "falang", does the falang
    has to do the papers again ? I would like to buy the motorbike from a lao collegue and she does not
    really know how it works for papers.

    Thank you for your help!

    See you soon !

    Falang can have vehicles registered in their own names... many dealers and sellers don't know that and insist that it has to be Lao person's name. Process is much the same at any rate as you must take all documents to Thongphong for the plates.

    In practice, if you do not want to renew the plates in your name now you don't have to. If you get stopped by the traffic police they won't even blink if the name on the registration is not the same as the person driving. However, you may have unnecessary headaches two or three years down the road when the registration expires or you try to sell the motorcycle to someone else.

    It helps to have someone that speaks Lao when you go to register but be prepared to wait around a considerable amount of time unless you are willing to spend some moolah to get to the front of the line....
