Might be off topic but might help. This is regarding transfering a 1961 motorcycle from AP to KA. This is my plan: Restore the motorcycle, take it back to AP, get hold of a middle man (makes the job quicker), transfer the bike in my name or a friend's who lives there, get a NOC, insurance, get the bike back to KA, pay the road tax here and ride it. Might sound easy and simple and can be that way if you willing to shell out some money and know the "right" middle men. If this fails, I would just use the number of one my "similar" motorcycles registered here locally and ride it.

Can anyone tell me the prodedure for getting comprehensive insurance for a vintage vehicle?

You need a surveyor's report along with the valuation report from the surveyor,(At your cost, insurance company will not pay for this.) which you need to submit to insurance company along with the proposal form for insurance.

My advice:- go for only TP insurance as this would not be much time consuming and easy too.

What is this thing about getting a certificate from the vintage car club?
Another thing is that if you get Third party insurance, you cant get comprehensive insurance after that. This is what was told to me by the insurance company, I dont understand the reason.

I think what they are asking is that you have to produce them the certificate that your car is a member of the Vintage Car Club. (May be but, still get it conformed from them)

TP insurance mean that if your car is damaging any third party (Life or Property only not the car) then the claim is payable to them (Not to you or your car or even other person's car.)

Comprehensive insurance mean that above TP is covered along with that your own car is also covered for losses. Theft is also covered for your car.

Thats what they way. They want a certificate saying that the Jeep is a vintage vehicle. Only then can I get comprehensive insurance. I guess the Vintage club can give this certificate, but I'm wondering why will they?

I am not sure if any insurance co in India, Pvt or public sector would issue a comprehensive policy for a vintage car. The problem is about valuation. I had faced this problem when I was invited to take my 1930 Austin to participate in an International show in Malaysia. The carnet rules specified a comprehensive insurance.

I would like to ask you sir, At that time did you survey the car?
Did any one form insurance company told you for survey of your car?

Because according to my knowledge insurance on our car is done on Insured Declared Value (IDV) if there is a car on which the book value is zero or i would say very less then there are professional surveyor's in the market who can derive at the current market value of that car.

Remember you don't have to reduce the value of the car like we do it in the regular car. but time and again you have to increase the IDV.

So did you opt for TP insurance?

Hi,

I recently purchased a 1960 fiat select in my home state Chhattisgarh. have got the FC, NOC, Transfer in my name and reregistration from MP no to CG no.

I am bringing the car to Bangalore, would I be able to ride the car without changing to Karnataka registration by mere paying the road tax.

Also what would be the road tax like, considering I bought the car for under 50 K.

Further can I also use the original registration (MPT XXXX) here in Bangalore will it be legal.

You are right JayD
Yes, I saw many Guys at Coimbatore auto Expo, just after seeing my "HONDA CB 125-K3" ( 1971), were discussing things like " Hey..its nothing but a modified Hero Honda,
with TWIN EXHAUST PIPES,.."even if some other guy says something informative,the other one justify s his claim by Showing the ,so called computer number " TN- _ _-AX-_ _ _ _"
This is a kind of misleading, I felt ( though as you aware, I have displayed facts & figures of that machine in the show).
ps: That's why till now I have not re-registered my AP & KL ones

How can you use an MPT plate when you have already got another state number CG-.It is highly illegal, and can be risky also.I dont know why you asked that in the first place

If the vehicle is already in your name, then you can just pay the road tax here in Karnataka and use the same old registration but be prepared to be stopped at every check point.

I don't think they will stop a classic or a vintage car for an issue of the registration.

I dont know how you can so with confidence.
Actually regarding classic/vintage cars, thanks to unscrupulous dealers et.al the authorities have become very cautious these days and check the documents .
