My Meeting with the transito Jefe today (June 24, 2013)

Post by Intercasa on Mon Jun 24, 2013 2:43 pm

So after hearing a report of a Q and A session at LCS I dropped off a package of laws with the head of transito with sections highlighted to clarify and lessen the fears most people has after the LCS meeting.  Last year I had made requests for written legal rulings from the state legal department so I included those.

This afternoon Alberto German Alvarez kindly received me and I clarified the following points with him:

1) Can foreigners legally drive with licenses from other countries
2) Are notary certified copies of immigration cards and car permits valid
3) Can you drive with expired NOB registration

As the law says that there is international recognition of licenses and state law mentions validity of out of state and foreign licenses, there was no issue, he did mention that it might be hard to verify out of country licenses but then I asked him iof he could verify licenses from Tlaxcala or Chiapas and he smiled and said no.

He then reviewed my written legal opinion from the state legal department as well as federal caselaw and said there was no problem with notary certified copies of car permits nor immigration documents.

I then went over with him the requirements per the law for driving a foreign vehicle and it only mentions that it needs to comply with federal import law, which is the temporary import permit and said permit can be obtained with expired registration.

Thanks, Spencer. License on one of our cars is about to expire and we've been trying to find out if we need to go the South Dakota route. Any idea whether MX auto insurance is affected by having an expired US registration? Would that be a point of contention if the vehicle were involved in an accident after the registration expired?

I just think it is messed up that Spencer was not able to attend such an important meeting since he was not a member of LCS, I think they are very shallow and no wonder most of us are not members.

Does #1 refer to MX plated and foreign plated vehicles?
