Hi. I've been here 5 days now, and am looking at buying a 2nd hand scooter. i have even seen the one i want.

through an admin assistant i have gathered the following.

You only buy the bike here. as it is second hand it comes with no guarantee.
The bike is imported from Japan
I must 'get' the number plates
I must get insurance
I must have a technical inspection
I must have a driver's license. it's 600 cc.


And then i will be able to drive it.

I suppose i must register the scooter in my name and address like the UK.

Does anyone have any experience on this matter, maybe for a car. have i missed anything out? Can expats register vehicles if not perm resident?

Thanks for that post. Russian wife or Girlfriend. er... just looking. :) .. nope, I don't have any of those.

So you think two wheels is impossible huh?

Is this data from experience or just your impression?

Seriously I suggest you also start thinking about your funeral arrangements, do you want a church service, which songs, types of flowers etc, cremation or burial.
