The procedure changes a little time to time and complexity differs from the zone to zone of BRTA. But we try to respond you query time to time.
From few days we are facing too much queries about the motorbike registration process due to sudden announcement from government where after January 1st, 2016 no vehicle therefore motorbike will not be allowed on the road without proper registration. Consequently we are herewith the current Motorcycle registration procedure in Bangladesh. Let’s try to answer your queries in detail though this feed therefore head in the detail procedure.
Collect Related Documents:
At first you have to collect all the documents of your new motorbike therefore the valid import document from the dealer like,
- Import document
- Customs clearance
- Gate pass
- VAT-11 documents of both importer & dealer
- Treasury Chalan from Sonali Bank for both importer & dealer
- Cash memo
- Owner voter ID card copy
You have to collect the entire document set from the dealer where you have purchased the bike. If you want to complete the whole registration process of your own, then be sure of receiving the entire set of the documents from the dealer. Often the dealers used to give the incomplete set of documents to the purchaser to put them in hassle and make the buyer agree to give them the responsibility of registration with paying some extra money. Yes the registration process is quite hassling; but if you receive all the documents on the time of purchasing the bike, we think you will enjoy the hassling task and of-course learn something.
Hence after getting the full set of documents, collect the three paged vehicle registration form from the BRTA office or their website. Fill up the form with applicant & vehicle data. This form is the application form with which other documents will be attached. Check the total set of documents including the application form by the related BRTA office. If they verified the application set as okey then they will give you an assessment slip (Money Deposit Slip) filling up your vehicle information mentioning with the related charges & fees. Don’t forget to get the officials signature & seal on the assessment slip.
Deposit The Fees At The Bank:
This is the second step of the process. Deposit the fees and charges at BRTA recommended Bank or Booth with the assessment slip. Get the specific printed money receipt from the bank and attach that with the application.

On submission you application, vehicle inspector will inspect your documents and also the vehicle. After the inspection and the authorization of the documents by the vehicle inspector they will give you the acknowledgement slip printed with the registration number & fitness, and also the tax token.
At that time they will put your identity and active mobile number at their documents and that is very important. After getting these documents you may ride your bike on the road; but you need to get finished the process by getting digital Blue-Book and Number-Plate.

After getting the massage collect your blue book and number plate from related BRTA office.
So guys those were the entire procedure of the registration of a new bike. But there is another query of you remaining which we think need to clarify separately. The bikes which are registered previously and have no RFID chip mounted number plate will not be eligible to roll on the road from January 1st of 2016 as per recent government announcement. In such case you have to apply for RFID digital number plate and digital registration certificate (smart card) from BRTA. Therefore for this issue let’s see the procedure.
RFID Number Plate & Smart Reg. Card:
For this issue you have to do the following.
- Collect assessment slip (money deposit slip) from BRTA. Fill up the owner and vehicle data as mentioned on current blue-book.
- Get the seal and signature of the BRTA official on that slip. The official will also mention the applicable fees & charges with the specific deposit head on the slip.

- On the appointed date keep the attested photocopy of your current registration card or the blue book, tax token, acknowledgment slip, money receipt with you; and take your vehicle there to receive the RFID Number Plate and Smart registration Card.

The return massage will instruct you the rest.
The current fees for the Digital Registration Certificate (Smart Card) is BDT 2200.00 And for Retro-Reflective RFID Number Plate is BDT 540.00 where all the charges applicable for 15% of VAT. Therefore the total charges will be BDT 2815.00 Without these fees & charges there may some dues of the VAT on the old registered numbers, which has registered after 2010 and hadn’t paid VAT on that time.
