How to buy a Used Car?

How do I go about buying a used car? Been looking at cars out of town. Would have to travel to get them. Do i need my turkish license first? I have my residence permit and tax number. Can the transfer be dont the same day to drive it home? Thanks.

Re: How to buy a Used Car?

All is done in a Noters office between you,the seller, a translator & the Noter .It is upi to you & the seller to come to an arrangement as to who pays for the fees,which could total 150-200tl.
If you buy a car on Turkish plates you will have to go & get new 'M' plates made up.Your translator should know where to go in your area for this & which Polis office to take the paperwork from the purchase to obtain your new Ruhsat with your name on it. For this you are usually allowed 30 days from the date of purchase .
You will need to get your insurance initially bearing the Turkish plate no. then when you have your new 'M' plate, call back to your broker for the change on your policy.
Bear in mind if you think you may want any other members of your family or Foreign friends to drive this car their names must be on the Ruhsat [ registration book] & they will need to be with you at the Noters office & hold a tax no. & RP,as they will be ''joint owners'' of the car with you. Definately no Turkish citizens are allowed to drive an 'M' plated car.It is 100% illegal for them & if caught by the Polis,both of you get fined & maybe your car will be impounded.

Re: How to buy a Used Car?

We did all of what Martin describes above in Izmir, three years ago. Only we have a motor cycle, not a car. The process is, I believe, the same.

We wrote about this, step by step, in our blog.

The first part (buying the bike) https://omentide.wordpress.com/2012/...rcycle-part-1/
The second part (getting the plate changed) https://omentide.wordpress.com/2012/...he-pink-dosya/

The Trafik Polis are in Kemer.

Re: How to buy a Used Car?

As you are talking about a UK car then wouldnt it be insured in the uk with a green card to cover europe and turkey, and dont forget, it can only stay in turkey 6 months anyway, you wouldnt have any reason to insure it in turkey...
