We drove our Mexico plated vehicle in the US for almost 3 months. We expected to get stopped and had our Guerrero drivers licenses handy. Nothing. When I crossed the border by myself pulling an enclosed cargo trailer, US Customs scanned my US passport, welcomed me back and sent me on my way. THEY DIDN'T EVEN LOOK IN THE TRAILER!!!!

I think the official view in the US and Canada of Mexico plates is not to have anything to do with them unless something really bad happens.

The Qualitas insurance that many of us buy here also covers your Mexican plated vehicle in the US and Canada. We do suggest that you confirm that with your agent, but it makes life easier!

You cannot take a Mexican plated vehicle into Canada. Once permanente if I want to drive down I will store it in San Carlos in the free zone and do a swap over. One nice thing aboiut BC is I can get a rebate on insurance while a vehicle is in mexico. Mind you I do live only 3 km from the border and its a rural area, so could probably store it in the US. A friend of mine is trying to talk the government into allowing something like the 6 month TIP in Mexico

Yes you can.

A neighbor here, a good friend, who lives in BC and has been a permanent resident of Mexico for years, drives his Guerrero plated truck back to BC every summer, spends several months, then returns in the fall.

If you couldn't take a Mexican plated vehicle into Canada, you couldn't take a US or European plated one either.

Chris has traveled in Canada with his vehicle and has stated as much on this board.

Read this thread, it's from where you will be spending your time.

Glad to hear you're alright and your DW too. I often wondered how she made out. Still taking treatments?

Tallyho: Your post is incorrect
I dont doubt thst the person you mentioned does drive his car. But it is illegal. I wonder how he crossed the border. A Canadian citizen cannot drive a foreign plated vehicle in Canada. There are a few vehicles that are permitted. They would be specialized vehicles for construction. Tequila is being wise
If a Canadian is stopped by a leothe vehicle will be siezed and you could end up in prison. If we were allowed yo dtive foreign vehicles we would all br dtivong US rv,s without paying tax. If you had an accident your foreign insurance would not be valid.
