  1. Toll Highways (Otoyol) Depending on where you are driving in Turkey, you may come across an otoyol, which is a modern highway where the speed limit is 120 KPH. Otoyols also have rest stops with petrol stations, restaurants, and other travel necessities strategically placed along their lengths. These are toll roads, and the only way you can pay the toll is by registering with the Hızlı Geçiş Sistemi (heez-lee geh-jees see-steh-mee) [HGS]), which means "Fast Pass System." This involves pre-paying into the system, and mounting an HGS transponder on the inside of your vehicle's windshield behi
  2. So I just bought a new car from an authorized dealership. I knew there are tax free plates for foreigners that have lettering MA-MZ but they have selling and other restrictions. So I went ahead and paid full taxes. I was surprised that my plate came out MD. Is there a mistake here? Did I get a blue plate although I paid full taxes? Please confirm. Thanks.
  3. I'm a UK national and own a property in Turkey but I don't yet have residency status in Turkey. I'd like to import a classic car into Turkey (an old Jeep) and register it so that I can leave it at my house and use it when I'm staying in Turkey. Can anyone tell me if this is possible and how I can do it? Thanks.

  6. Hi allany information would be much appreciated. I am an Australian (age early 30's) with Turkish citizenship (passport) and plan to move to Bodrum area early next year. Currently we am living in London and would like to investigate if taking our car to Turkey would be a good idea.

  7. How do customs offices calculate the import duty on cars for use by foreign students while living in Turkey? I have two vehicles, one is a 2010 Ford, and the other is a 1979 Lincoln. How much should I expect to pay for either cars as customs import duty? And how soon after importing a car would someone have to export the car back or pay its duty and fees for licensing? Thanks
  8. Nothing special, it is a six year old Astra turbo. It cost somewhere between two and three times what an equivalent car would have cost me in the UK. The equivalent price for Turks must be much more given the lower average wage in Turkey. To change the ownership of the car both we and the seller had to go to the Notary Public where the change of ownership paper was filled out, the money(cash) noted and given to the sellers. We got all the tax and insurance sorted out and new licence plates issued on Friday. My stepsons will be doing most of the driving, but it seems that
  9. Hello friends, I have a work permit and my wife and I are considering buying a new car and registering it under my name in order to avoid the OTV and KDV tax. Does any one have updated information pertaining to this process/ the stipulations. I suppose the savings would depend on the type of car. Where can I find tax bracket information? Is it true I can never sell the car to anyone except another foreigner? I've heard after 5 yrs I'll get my deposit back and be able to sell to anyone. As always, thanks for any help. Thomas
  10. Temporary Import of a vehicle to Turkey I am writing these notes on my experience of importing my UK vehicle to Turkey, as I could find little information that describes the complete process, and much that was available was inaccurate and incomplete. I did this in Samsun and the process may differ in other places. The process is complex and time-consuming, and the biggest problem is finding the right people to undertake the necessary steps for you, as few will have had to do these for a foreign vehicle, and they can too easily tell you it is not possible. You therefore need to have someon
  11. Hi everybody, I'm thinking to start a used cars dealer company in Turkey. But there is a very short amount of information about import taxes, rules, etc, etc.. Could anybody help me with exact info? I already tried to search this and few other forums, but most questions is that "some guy from UK / USA / Mars want to bring a car from his home country to Turkey", my situation are different. I want to import not just 1 car and not for myself and not as a person but as a company (Turkish co.) For example questions to which I would like to know answers: How the import tax are fo
  12. Hello all, just discovered this forum and it's awesome! I am likely inbound to Incirlik and I don't have a vehicle, but would like to purchase one when I arrive. What are the options to purchase a car that's a decent size (new baby with lots of baby goods)? I understand that there isn't a lemon lot on Incirlik. What do folks normally do? Also, I heard there isn't a pet boarding facility on incirlik -- what do people with dogs do? We have a small dog who I don't want to have to leave behind for two years! Thanks all! Jim
  13. Hi guys, we are thinking of spending our summer school holidays driving from Turkey and around Europe. Can I take my Turkish car out of Turkey? Do I need additional insurance or is my Turkish insurance enough. Do I need to register the car in Europe? Is it a hassle? Advice please. Jane Janeyinmersin.com
  14. Hey guys! I'm new to the forum. I've been in Turkey for about 2 years now, and am doing my undergrad in Istanbul. I'm looking to buy a used car from another foreigner (MA plates), and had a few questions since I really can't find this information no matter where I look! 1) For cars bought from other foreigners within Turkey, is a Blue Book (Mavi Carnet) issued? Or is it only for cars brought in from abroad? 2) How much does registration cost? I checked with a MA car dealer (Berkay Automobiles, Ankara) and they said its close to 3000TL just for the traffic documents, vehicle plates,

  17. Hello everybody,My wife and I, both Dutch citizens (NL), have been living in Istanbul with a work permit and residence permit for a few months and driving one of our two NL cars so far. So far, Istanbul surpassed our expectations in every way, but we are not 100% sure yet about committing to buying a car (which, as you all know, is quite an investment our preferred >2000cc segment needed to transport a family in hilly North Istanbul). It is clear that our current NL-plated car will have to leave Turkey after 180 days. What is not immediately clear to us: can we now bring our other, second c
  18. This is from the book "Scotch and Holy Water," written by John D. Tumpane. John was an American contractor sent to work in various parts of Turkey during the 1950s and 1960s. The US government gave him a pamphlet called "The Traffic Rules of Turkey." But after John had been in country for a few years, he decided he was amply qualified to publish his own traffic rules. Here they are: General Rules 1. The first shall be first, and the last shall be guilty. If you are entering a main artery from a side street, simply step on the gas and get there first. After the accident, the police
  19. Hi there,I moved to Istanbul yesterday from Ireland for work purposes.

Last year, I have imported my car (Mini cooper) from the Netherlands to Ireland and I would like to import the same car into Turkey.Any ideas what the rules are? And what the costs are? Any resources I could use?Many thanks in advance.
  20. Dear All, Currently I am in Turkey on a student Resident Permit that valid for 3 years "I guess". Recently I decided to buy a vehicle in Istanbul, however; and for some reason, the secondhand cars are way too expensive . So, I have my car back home sitting in the garage is doing nothing and no one is using it. My question is, what has to be done in order to register my car that I will ship in two months? I knew that importing a car is a headache, but I can't afford to buy a car in Turkey since I am a student . Also, I am wondering if there are shipping companies who can handle the shippi

  22. Hi, Does any one know if we can register a new car in joint foreign names? my partner and I want to buy a new car, we are in the process of getting our resident permits which i know we need so we get the ID number. If we were married we could register the car in one of our names and the husband or wife would be able to drive, however even though we are a family; my partner is Bulgarian and i am English and we live in Izmir with our little girl, it seems in Turkey because we are not married we are not recognised as a family. So thats why i need to find out if its possible to register the car in

  24. So I was at Incirlik for about 16 months from 05-07 as military and loved it so much that I just moved back this week after accepting a contracting position. I must say I missed this place a lot, glad to be back, hope to be here for another 5-6 years minimum.Right now I am here on NATO orders awaiting a work visa. Am I still allowed to purchase a vehicle on the local economy while on NATO orders?I also do not remember any places to purchase cars out in Adana. Anyone ever found a good place for that? I am looking for a used Focus since it is a safe bet almost any mechanic in Turkey would be fam
  25. This is relatively straightforward. You pay tax here on the 1st Jan and the 1st July, depending on the size of your car, the bill gets higher every year and this year it flew up. If you have bought a car, especially if it is second hand, make sure there is no outstanding tax debt on the car BEFORE YOU HAND OVER A PENNY. You will have been to the tax office to get your tax number before, so go back to the same place and as soon as you go through the door, straight ahead with a sign over it is M.V.T. Give the guys your ownership book, and ask them to check the vehicle tax is ok. D
