Never implied that it did. I was always under the impression that the blue book was only for Thais to register their address.

The owner of a yellow book can use the book to obtain a pink Thai identity card from Tessaban.
It can't be used for anything other purpose than to impress the police when you are stopped in a routine-control because they've never seen one before and because of that they let you through,
Good and sound for proof of address for immigration, just like the yellow book, but in reality they both are worthless and good for nothing.
A blue book is solemly a proof of a Thai-persons ownership of a property and / or a house.
A Yellow book is just a proof of ovnership of a house. The property must be owned by a majority of Thais, 49% by you, 51% by a Thai (or more) citizens.

So why on earth is both Tessaban in Hua Hin and my lawyers office telling me that the blue book is a Thai-thing only and the yellow coloured one is reserved for the rest of us.
The links are ok. But if the rulers say what the say, you better some up with some harder facts to convince them that they are wrong.
Just a short trip to the immigration with your blue book will tell you that.
With your blue book you can't show proof of address, you can't by a car or mc but you can do that with a yellow book.
The discrepancy between what is told you and what is the right procedure is this country is just appalling. Who to believe?

You need the Chanote, and the right type of Chanote which I'm not sure is. That is the real proof of ownership to the land. That is what my wife tells me and shows me her Chanote for our property and house. The blue book is worth nothing when it comes to ownership of the land, only telling who (Thai) is registered as living on this address.

Most are correct here but Norseman must have misunderstood somewhere along the line.
The blue book is proof of address for a Thai and as such can be used for the purchase of a mc or car.
The yellow book is proof of address for a non-Thai and can be used for the purchase of a mc or car. A non-Thai without a yellow book needs to have proof of address from immigration in order to purchase a mc or car.

Neither is proof of ownership. Only the chanote shows the owner of the land and a non-Thai owning a house must have it registered at the Land Office.

Yet I showed my house blue book to the car dealership when buying a new car, I didn't have to show a house purchase contract, land lease or chanote copy.

And my blue book doesn't even show my name on the last page, only that of the first farang house owner.

Maybe the dealership isn't following the rules, TIT.

You do not need a letter from immigration to purchase a car. I bought my car from Nissan and only provided copies of my passport including the retirement visa page plus my wife's house book which did not have my name in it. No problem.

You were lucky. Bought my bikes from Honda and needed immigration letter. When I transferred a car from the original farang owner to my name, we both needed a letter from immigration.
When you fill in the application for the letter at immigration, one of the options to select is 'purchasing of a motorcycle or car'. 3 motorbikes and 2 cars and a letter was required each time.
