Vehicle Inspection Stations

Post by Name Taken » Sun Jul 09, 2017 9:00 am

Does anyone know what the official Thai name for those vehicle smog inspection stations that you have to take your vehicle to every year in order to renew your vehicles registration? And how I might be able to contact the government agency responsible for these vehicle inspection stations.

The certificate is know as a 'TorRorOr'

The local Department of Land Transport Office (DLT) does not issue the TorRorOr, but there are many private companies around Thailand that are authorised to perform this service. These companies can be identified by their official logo: a yellow gear on a blue circle.

Thanks Geko,
We had a new vehicle inspection station(that has the sign that you posted a picture of) that was recently built in a small town near our home, but it has been unmanned and empty for at least a month.

The certificate is know as a 'TorRorOr'
Actually, the certificate: "Tor Or Bor" is the certificate for the compulsory insurance. An inspection station will issue a road worthy certificate without a "Tor Or Bor" as you can get one from your own insurance company without any inspection. The DLT will not register a vehicle without a valid insurance certificate, and a roadworthy certificate, if required.

edit: if the car is less than 5 years old it does not require an inspection. The DLT has the following call centre number: 1584.

I think you'll find it's 7 years for a car and 5 for a bike.

Advised by my insurance agent for a car.
inspection report in case your car is seven years old or older.
When you have a NGV tank, an inspection report of the NGV system is needed every year.
When your car has LPG, an inspection report of the LPG System is needed when your car is over 5 years old.
