Mexico Vehicle Registration Process

Mexico Vehicle Registration Process
🇲🇽 Mexico, (MX)

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.

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.

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.

Driving In Mexico & Understanding Rules Of The Road

Driving And Getting Around

Cars stay on the right side of the road when you’re south of the U.S. border. Signs are written in Spanish so make sure you know where you’re going or can read the signs with confidence. Note that speed limits in Mexico are posted in kilometers and not miles per hour, so do not be lulled into that math trap.

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.

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.

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!
