He explained that not any motor vehicle can access this process and mentioned requirements and which units cannot be registered.

“There are particular characteristics that the vehicles that are going to enter the regularization process must have, one of them is that they are manufactured in the United States, Canada or Mexico and in order to determine that, the serial number must start with a number from 1 to 5 That is part of the most important thing to identify in order to regularize a vehicle”.

He warned that they have to be cars that are not luxury, not sports cars and that they are from the 2016 models backward.
