I have heard 2 opposing statements:  1)  No one may drive a car registered and insured to me unless it is a family member.  2)  Anyone can drive a car registered and insured to me as long as I give my permission.  Could it possibly be as simple as asking which statement is correct?  Thanks.

It depends...is the car a foreign plated car in Mexico on a temporary import permit or is it a Mexican plated car?

 

If it is a "TIP" car then #1 is correct, but others may drive it as long as you are in the car at the time.

 

If it is a Mexican plated car, anyone can drive it.

 

(Those are the rules as far as I know)

I believe that the car insurance must cover other drivers and not only the owner otherwise you become a Mexican redneck driver (LOL).

I am new to the group--my wife and I rented a small studio in early jan of this yr (2017) we are only here on a limited basis  as I have heart issues and can not travel as much as we once did--I have to go back home US and get further directions on my heart issue--here is my question??  we signed a 1 yr rental agreement for this studio jan 11 2017, and paid  6 months up front and the contract says we will pay on a month to month basis starting the 7 month  --as we/I  will not be able (physically) to come back to Mexico after we leave in a few days,, is there a way that I can give this landlord a 30 day notice of intent to vacate the property and would this be within Mexican law?? would someone  give me their thoughts on this issue --Fred

Fred, that should be stipulated in your contract. Our "opinions" hardly matter. One one hand it's a legal issue, the other is a moral issue. How do you feel about walking out on a contract you signed? You may also have received a discount on the rent by signing a year contract. You may owe some back rent for terminating early.
