... the insurance guy, Qualitias did ask me about my DL, I showed it to him but whether it's 'requirement' for everyone insuring a car I dunno.. he filled everything out on his smartphone no less... so I assumed it's a requirement since he asked. Unlike Canada getting new plates is not part of your insurance though.. that's separate.
Cost of the after purchase paperwork:
New license plates $3200 which includes this years license plate road tax... it will be due again ($700 more or less) in January.
New DL ... $800 plus a $500 peso 'tip' for helping a gringo with the exam which is all in Spanish and which even Mexican can't pass.. Only in Mexico.. lol
Insurance... Qualitias.. no deductible almost $12,000 pesos.. The biggest bite was the 'collision'... almost $8000..
