Buying a car while RP is pending


Greetings folks!

So I read here in some post that an RP is required for motorcycle. I'm assuming same goes for a car.

My question is; can you purchase a car while your RP (1st time) is pending?

I'm considering a "pending" period because I also read here in a post that wait times for an interview date in the Istanbul region are upto 4 months. That's money wasted on a rental if one has to go that route.

And not to mention, I am sure a Turkish drivers license is required after a while.

I'm just posting all concerns here that pop to my mind, prior to our move (still not too excited about the recent RP changes ).

Thank you again.

Re: Buying a car while RP is pending

I am not sure about buying but a fiend of mine sold her car while the RP was pending. Did they give you a print out to show that it was pending? That was all she needed. Technically with an RP you can only drive for 6 months on a foreign licence. But you can start again after you leave the country.

Ok, so a Kimlik number (and not the physical card) is required for purchase of a vehicle. I am assuming that the number is easily obtainable once a new RP is filed.

Also assuming the same applies to renting an apartment while an RP application is pending (that is, interview date is in the future).

Thank you, again.

Good to know about the 6 months. I'll plan then to transfer/exchange my license for a Turkish license before the 6 months are up.

gam101.....''.....while an RP application is pending (that is, interview date is in the future).''....

A Yabanci Kimlik Number is not raised for you until you've had your interview & your application has been officially accepted.

OH WOW! So, until the interview takes place....a rental vehicle is the only option. Snap! :-(

Thank you for that clarification.
