How To Register A Vehicle In Chile | Full Process

Trying to bring a new vehicle into a country is tough. With the right importer, the process of going through customs and paying the right fees should be a breeze.

Whatever the case, it’s good to know all the processes you have to go through to register and legally drive your car. Below are some of the basic pieces of information to register your vehicle in Chile.

Getting Your License

The Chilean government has integrated everything under a national number identification system, referred to as the RUT (Rol Único Tributario). The number can be used for bank accounts, groceries, store membership cards and taxes. More importantly, it will help you obtain a license to drive in the country.

Here’s the minimum you need to know about getting a license as a permanent resident.

  • You must be at least 18.
  • The RUN must be in good standing.
  • Meet basic education requirements. These don’t have anything to do with driver’s education so much as having graduated from high school. That needs to be certified by the Chilean consult as well as your country of origin’s consult.

After meeting those marks, you’ll need to pass the written test, the physical test and the practical test. The written test is a 45 minute exam with 35 multiple choice questions, with a passing score being 33 out of 38. If you pass that, you get a medical/physical test.

The last hurdle is the practical driving exam: 10 minutes of driving on your own plus 15 minutes of driving under direction.

To register a car, you’ll need the following:

  • Have an RUT
  • Have the vehicle’s information ready (make, model, year, color, fuel type, weight, engine number)

After that you’ll have to go to an office of Civil Registry, order a vehicle registration, submit the documents, fill out the form and pay the registration fee. The office will review the record and, if approved, send a certificate of registration. If the application is rejected, the notice will come by mail and the applicant should come to the office to make any corrections.

General Tips

Getting around by car can be challenging in Chile. People drive on the right-hand side of the road but signs will be posted on all corners so keep your eyes peeled. Gas stations are few and far in between so fuel up as much as possible in between stops.

Insurance is also required to drive a vehicle here. It’s obtained through third-party companies.

The country is also full of toll-roads, with local booths accepting cash.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
