O.k. But can you get plates for it? Do you need to have a Mexican driver's license?

Just asking.

Yes you can own and drive a Mexican plated car while on a tourist visa.
No, you do not need to have a Mexican drivers license.
To my knowledge you cannot get a Mexican drivers license on a tourist visa.
But, other than drivers license you can buy, register and drive.
I'm doing so.

DC:

I have been following the threads on the Michoacan Message Board and while Michoacan is now requiring a local drivers license to register a vehicle, the same doesn't appear to be true (at least for the present) in Jalisco.

No, you don't need a Jalisco DL to register a vehicle however you do need a proof address which can be either a utility bill in your name or a rental agreement in your name.

And you need ID which will be your Visa and passport.

Thanks for all the responses, everyone!

Someone else told me there is an annual tax to pay on a Mexican-plated car; how is that calculated, anybody? How much is it, roughly?

Thanks again. Love this board.

I believe the annual license fee on my 2001 Pontiac Montana and my 1987 VW Beetle was about $300 US (so about $150 each).

The annual refrendo is $345.00 pesos if paid early for discount and includes CR payment.
