Mexico Vehicle Registration Process

Mexico (MEX)

Mexico Vehicle Registration Process

The Process Of Registering A Vehicle In Mexico

Mexico is a popular destination for travel and tourism. But what if you want to bring more than your luggage? If you’re thinking about importing and registering a car in this vacation paradise, look below for some guidelines on registration, driving and other aspects of getting around Mexico.

Innovations In Auto Transport Services In Mexico

Getting Your License

If you have a valid license from another country, you get to pass the written exam. Don’t have a license? Then you will have to take a written exam that’s only in Spanish.

Here are other items that you’ll need: a recent water or electric bill with your mailing address, immigration documents or a voter card for citizens.

Get three photocopies of each of the documents as that’s going to help you tremendously with the red tape.

Don’t forget to grab some insurance for your vehicle. It is required that your vehicle be insured by a Mexican insurance company. Another fun fact: The registered owner must be in the vehicle at all times by Mexican law.

Key Auto Transport Routes In Mexico

Getting License Plates

First things first, you cannot do this without a Mexican license. Got it? Great. Bring two copies plus the original license to the transit police. Alongside that, you’ll need a recent water or electric bill, proof of the import fee and proof of vehicle ownership.

Be sure that your vehicle identification number matches up with your paperwork or there will be some trouble.

As far as fees for the license plates, that all depends on the current value of your car.

History Of Auto Transport In Mexico

Driving In Mexico & Understanding Rules Of The Road

Driving And Getting Around

When driving south of the United States border do so on the right side of the road. Make sure you know your way around or that you are comfortable reading signs in Spanish. In Mexico speed limits are indicated in kilometers per hour rather than miles per hour so keep that in mind.

Night driving is something to approach cautiously. Lighting on Mexican roadways is questionable at night – read: nonexistent in some places – and livestock is known to wander out into the roads.

The Role Of Highways In Auto Transport In Mexico

Road conditions are a hit or miss. Some roads are impeccable with smooth pavement. But others are pothole ridden and questionable at best. When you venture away from the main cities into the outskirts, that is when the likelihood of hitting rough roads increases.

When inclement weather strikes, be prepared for floods. It’s recommended you have a high clearance, four-wheel drive vehicle for weather like that.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
