Thai numbers on cars and motorcycles.In order for this website did not like a boring, ordinary blog on the Review of restaurants in Phuket, I decided to dilute the new and exciting topics. Today I will tell you about Thai cars and motorcycles. Namely, for special decals Thai rooms. So: Thai numbers on cars and motorcycles. Most likely you have already noticed that most of the cars have different license plates?
Some go with red plates, others with green, and all other cars are equipped with yellow license plates. But, it's not, as you thought, the vehicle's favorite colors. Here, each feature of the number has its own designation. On the territory of Asia, the opinion is widespread: one does not need to have his own apartment or rent it, but the vehicle and phone must be with you. The most heaped smartphones, such as the iPhone or Blackberry are almost all. Of course, there is no question of all residents. Similar traditions exist also among Europeans - wristwatches and high-quality shoes. But if an ordinary worker does not have to walk in expensive stylish watches, then the inhabitants of Thailand do not care. A few of my friends will easily ask how expensive a new ring or bracelets cost - you need to know the status of a person by his clothes or accessories. It's not a bad thing that not all residents of Thailand are so interested in accessories, they are often happy for others without any interests. So auto or motorcycle should talk about the position of the Thai in society. And in order to increase the authority, they believe in beautiful license plates. Or simply they like beautiful numbers, immediately speaking for the owner and about his car. But you need to start from the beginning.
When buying a motorcycle or a car, you are first given red license plates with black, secret signs that indicate that the transport has not yet been registered, and the owner does not have a Green or Blue Book - documents for registering a car or a motorcycle. With these numbers, a small number of restrictions are imposed on the driving of the vehicle. If a resident of Thailand with temporary license plates travels a lot to the Kingdom, he is given a number with white numbers, where the name of the country is written down. Registration and change of temporary numbers on permanent takes about two to three months. Usually, the numbers for cars and motorcycles are Thai letters, numbers and country. The exception is the area of Betong, where the name of the district, and not the province, is indicated.
For all transport 1997 was carried out reform of the change to change the license plates. After all motorcycles were numbered in three lines: the name of the province, three charges according to where the bike was registered, and the numbers to 1 999. Now there are new sample room, where all three lines of black on a light background, and the old name of the province where expressed in two letters, which are on a red background. Currently, Thailand ancient ride motorcycles with two-row numbers that were given to 1997 years: the name of the province and the rooms consist of consonants and numbers.
The rooms are not exchanged for reasons of employment in the province license plates. Similar number signs possess a rare police motorcycles, only to motorbikes, you can determine who the owner is. Police plates consist of five white numbers on a red background, and nearby is a shield and a sword. Motorcycles that are legally registered for the carriage of passengers, they are inherent in the black numbers.
The license plates for cars is much more difficult. They portrayed the name of the province and the number plate consisting of two consonants and one to four digits. So for motorcycles, not all combinations of characters used. For example, the "poor", "unfortunate" and "death." I think everyone understands, is not the most apt word for a motorcycle or a car.
If you have individual transport only for their own use with a 7 people, you give the blue license plate on a light background. Its pickups and small trucks osnoschayutsya green numbered signs on a light background. Taxis and cars more than eight seats, for the purpose of commercial transport of persons, vehicles will in any case with black number signs on a yellow background, but for vehicles more than eight seats are not offered in the license plate consonants. Transfer that will meet you at the airport, will be different number signs light on zёlenom background.
At cars technical purposes are black numbers. Samlah working as a taxi driver, will have green license plates, and personal trёhkolesny trucks - red license plates on a light background. Phuket Samlah may be numbers of two different types, for both personal pickups blue number. Just draw an analogy. All rooms with a yellow background are required for the transportation of people officially registered transport, whether it is a motorcycle taxi, bus, Samlah or trucks.
Personal transport is generally a number with a white background, the license plate can be of any color. If a resident of Thailand or decide to carry tourists obyno passengers by car, he must make re-registration and pay the tax. After it will be given a license plate with bright rooms. But not everyone is complying with the rules.
For particularly steep and advanced there are special signs sold at auctions in Thailand, with "thieves" numbers not on a simple background, but with images. This exists only for personal transport. The reasons for buying such numbers are different. Some want to prove themselves, others believe in numerology and buy beautiful numbers. I think these numbers are beautiful and unique, because the picture shows its heritage of the province, where the car was registered. Phuket has a sea with boats and a cape, in Bangkok there are rivers with all the beauty, Surat Thani is the water park of Angthong. In total there were counted three hundred and one beautiful license plates in each province. On average, the price of this number is about several hundred thousand baht, but you can find no expensive, about five thousand baht. The most expensive, which I saw - the license plate 9999 was estimated at ten million baht. Nine is the happiest number in Thailand.
Separately there are numbers for trucks and transport over eight seats. Such transport, registered for transportation of people has a yellow table background, the rest is light. The number is written in dark color through the line. Also on the number is written the name of the province and rarely written its number. The first part of the license plate from eighty to ninety-nine says about a private tractor, from forty to forty-caucasus about a personal bus. On the rooms of private passenger buses, registered in commercial companies, the first part of license plates will be from thirty to thirty-nine, and the color will be yellow. On commercial trucks, the first two digits will be from seventy to seventy-nine. As in the case of motorcycles, police cars are given red-colored plates with five digits.
Official cars serving consulates and embassy have bright numbers with one letter and two digits denoting the enterprise and 4 figures on a blue background. Military vehicles belonging to the military forces of Thailand are distinguished by a black and light plate with 4-5 figures, and a symbol of the organization or enterprise is drawn next. The royal family travels by transport, where on the dark room are written 3 letters showing the means of transportation of the royal family, and one - four figures. Such complicated rules exist in Thailand for license plates for any transport. What else unusual can you see on motorcycles or cars?
On the frame or glass motorcycle should be a square sticker, which immediately attracts special attention. I have no doubt that you know about the chronology in Thailand. For example, now it's 2555 year. So the stickers will be dated for this and next year. Russian speakers call it a vehicle inspection, as they do at home. But I'm telling you about the people from another planet, and the Thais have the opposite. The sticker shows that you have paid the transport tax. Upon acquisition and after the official registration, you are required to issue a square paper that is glued to the place from where it could be seen. It is valid for exactly one year, after which it must be exchanged for the same new one, no matter who is or was the master.
This sticker talks about the information of the car or motorcycle and means that all taxes related to transportation have been paid. Most likely, Russian speakers have never changed it, but I beg to believe that no one technically will examine your car or motorcycle. You usually pay tax on deportation by vehicle. Unfortunately for Russian speakers, the police often looks and checks this sticker and collects not small fines from offenders, so forget about the date your sticker ends. And, most likely, the Thais, adherents of cinematic heroes, certainly will issue their numbers and tax stickers in the best way to stand out and show themselves. SpongeBob, Patrick, Mickey Mouse, Winnie the Pooh, even though they will be within a radius of 20 meters from you on a motorway or a large parking lot. I, too, attached a frame to my car with Winnie the Pooh. Now we have to wait for permanent license plates. Moreover, all the license plates issued by the departments for cars and bikes have a special symbol, because of this it is impossible to forge license plates or at least very difficult. As though that's all I can tell about license plates on cars and motorcycles. If there are any questions, then I do not need to ask them personally, since this is not my topic, at least not my favorite, and if I understand it only in the coloring. In fact, the Thai government has been trying for over two years to fix the format of the numbers according to the usual, uniform standard, as it is done in other countries. In Bangkok, there have already been changed about fifteen or twenty motorcycles and cars. They promise to finish everything in 2015 year. Let's hope and wish good luck! And you currently have a little time to posmoret all variety of plates and license plates.
