Whether you've got a Tico or a Lexus, a Dailim or a Harley, this is the forum to discuss transport in Cambodia. Where to buy it, how much to pay and what to do when the wheels fall off.
Is there anyone there who can assist me in transferring a Honda Baja in my name? I have the previous owner (on the ID card of the bike) of the bike. I am not Cambodian. Of course you will be paid for your services.

What exactly does that mean? I think u also need proof of sale...
Agree with CG, Lucky's is a good place to start...
I personally hate lucky's, but the fact is, if u have q's about motos they are a good place to start.
Unless your planning on taking your bike to Thailand*, why bother.
Most bike shops can do it for you for a varying fee plus unspecified bribes for the numerous fictitious paperwork problems that will occur.
Cops here don't care who's photo is on your reg card just that you have it (or a copy), if your foolish enough to stop.
Much Cheaper and less to pay a small ($1-$3) bribe should the need occur.
Thailand the bike needs to be in your name
Vietnam you can't take a anything bigger than 125cc (can take 250 to Ha Tien with no reg)
Laos does not require the reg to be in your name but require you to have bike registration (I believe)
The Lucky Lucky people are great. But they do not do any registrations.
If the bribery route is actually the one that makes sense, then start at
a bike shop as is recommended above.
Been to Lucky. They told me they do not do registrations anymore. Since when? Since about a year ago. Why? Because since a year it got very strict.
However, been to a few bike shops. If I buy a bike from shops on Sihanouk Blvd, or for example Flying Bikes, they will put the bike in my name. Not so strict after all! If I do not buy from them they will charge me around 125 usd to put the bike in my name.
I am planning to take the bike to Laos and Thailand, and maybe even to Malaysia and Indonesia. Anyone experience with taking a bike without Carnet to these countries?
By the way you need (thumb prints) of the owner (on the ID card of the bike) to transfer a bike to your own name, on a so called "transaction document". Proof of sale is handy if you are driving only in Cambodia, and not planning to put the bike into your own name. It has no meaning when the bike is already transferred into your name.
Good info, thx! Was $125 only if u had the fingerprints or was the fee for doing it without the proper docs?
Just by way of comparison, I had some of the Khmer staff here at the office handle the vehicle transfer/registration process for me, and the total cost was around 35 or 40 USD.
I was told there would be cake.
125$ to 150$ with all legal documents. Without finger prints AND physical presence of the person on the ID card of the bike: impossible.
I have got some good news from someone who tells me that it can be done for much less. So much more less that it seems to good to be true. I want to see how it goes. So do not get your hopes up. It is even less than the 35$ mentioned in the previous post. But 35/40$ is what I have heard to be the official rate. I am sceptical.
Yeah, $40 sounds right, and $125 is crazy! I assumed that was the price for doing it WITHOUT the proper things in order..
If anyone knows someone who can do it for less, please let me know. That means I deliver the following necessities:
- original owner of the bike
- with all other paperwork (passport size photo(s), copy of passport and visa)
- except rental agreement with my adress in Cambodia, which I do not have.
With the above mentioned necessities I will get the bike in my name within a month.
If you people, reading this, can proof to me that you can get a bike registered to a tourist(visa) for less than 125$, you may comment.
If you cannot register a bike on a tourist visa at all, or if you cannot register a bike on a tourist visa for less than 125$, what authority do you have on this topic? You do not contribute anything usefull by giving a reaction based on nothing.
Oh, u have a tourist visa, good luck! Anything else u forgot to mention to these people that u hope will help u?
