Registering Moto - New Rule

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I thought they only got rid of it for little bikes? Maybe you're right.

I had my scooter confiscated a few months ago because I was not on the owner card, and the police wont return it for the same reason.

Not saying most wont have problems, but things are changing around here and paying a small slap on the wrist and being carefree isn't always the way it's done anymore.
That is bad news. So I wonder if all unregistered and bikes without plates will end up the same.

My scooter was registered, only in a different name. It had a genuine plate, and I had the sales receipt and a copy of the contract with thumbprints on it from the previous owner.

So assuming whoever it is registered to can go and retrieve it?

Right, but given that it's been 4 years since I purchased it and that I don't have the previous owner's phone or contact info, I have no way of getting my bike back.

Even with a fee?

Two franklins under the table wasn't enough, and my bike isn't worth much more than that.

That's odd...I'm sure Khmer families share a moto that is registered to only one of them.

Or what if an expat is tooling around on his Khmer wife's Scoopy and the police stop him?

We can only ride motos where we have our own name on the registration card for that moto?

That's asinine

In those situations the owner (family, wife etc) would simply pick it up.

I understand that, but what a pain in the ass. What if your wife is in Chbbar Ampouv and you get stopped way out at Aeon 2.

I'd be that 80% of moto drivers on the road right now are operating motos that do not have their name on the registration and maybe another high percentage that don't drive with the original registration card in their possession at all.
