Korean Insurance and Temporary Plates

Hello

I am struggling to find specific information on where I can get Insurance and Temporary Plates to ride in South Korea. I have found that the building is the third stop from the Airport, but I do not know what the building/department/street for the location the building, does anyone have any information on this?

Thanks in advance

I only know of 2 HU inmates on the forum. Seouljoe and SR1. I would think either could help you out here. Also here is a link from Seouljoe with other info. Hope it helps. Post so I know what's up when I get there next month.

There was a guy who was there 2-3 years ago and went through the process. His name is SeanF on HU. I talked to him several months ago. He said next time he would just ship straight to Vlad to avoid the hassle. He had to go downtown to do paper work. I think most of the hassle was having to wait through the weekend to do it. Then he had another weekend wait when he got to Vlad.

I think you have to get Korean insurance too. It may be expensive with a minimum length. Sorry I don't have his link anymore.

Insurance

You can buy as third party liability for USD 30,, for a month at any local agent.
As soon as you get off the ferry ask the agent , , where.
Most cases you will not be asked about insurance by the customs or the police.
