FYI, Just got a call from my Brother, he stopped into S+S auto this morning, as he was planing a Road trip outside this next week driving a new Car he had bought recently from S+S , and just wanted some info on route, Hotel's etc. Spencer told him not to make the trip by Auto as he has not yet gotten his Mexican Driver's license yet, and told him about the unfortunate happenings to one of his customers recently. So thought I would pass this along.

A women had bought a car from S+S recently and drove to Texas, at the border she was arrested and her New car confiscated ! Needless to say my Brother is now flying ! This reminds me that My Wife and I have not gotten ours yet, and with this crack down on rules of the road happening anytime now are planning to get ours as soon as possible ! Take Care, another Beautiful Day outside. Tday

This does not make sense I have crossed many times without matching plates and license. But come to think of it, I do not remember a drivers lic check.

I think someone has the story wrong. My guess was that the car from S&S was stolen from US at one time and was on the watch list. They don't confiscate cars even if you had an invalid license. Or there was other contraband in the car.....

I can’t imagine S&S selling a stolen car though.

S&S also sells and consigns used cars. If they have the "proper" MX paperwork they would have no idea it was stolen from the US. It happened to a friend of mine who bought a used Porsche from a reputable dealer in Vancouver. He hit the US border and they confiscated the car and arrested him until he could prove the lineage of how he came to own it. The car was returned to the original owner who reported it stolen 10 years earlier.

That would be my guess too, CB, and the fact that the brother was warned by the person who sold him the car - same person that sold the other car - is a little troubling. Way more to this story.

Yep, it has nothing to do with not having a Mexican license. Mexico/USA/CAN accept any valid license from either countries.

I posted a note a couple days ago about a women who was arrested at the border driving a new car w/ Mexican
plates, but with no Mexican driver license, it was 2nd had information that I passed on. It turns out that She was arrested on the US Side of the Border. More to it than just the License I suspect. Mea Copa .
