Pheeraphon Thawornsuphacharoen has said that thirty days from purchase is the limit. 

Distributors must clearly specify the date of purchase and provide other documentation to go with the vehicle. 

Many people drive around with “new” vehicles for months and even years, notes Thaivisa. 

Daily News said criminal elements were circumventing the process. 

Pheeraphon said that if everything is in order after the purchase of a vehicle the permanent plates can be obtained within a day. 

Most dealers handle the process for purchasers and promise to get it completed within about a week. 

People flouting the 30 day law will face fines of 10,000 baht, he said.
