The State Duma adopted a law on the abolition of compulsory technical inspection

The State Duma in the third, final reading adopted a bill that abolishes the mandatory inspection of cars and motor vehicles owned by individuals. This was reported on December 22 by the press service of the lower house.

The law applies to passenger cars and motorcycles of individuals used for personal purposes. Their owners will no longer need to receive a diagnostic card in order to issue an MTPL policy and go on the road. At the same time, they have the right to apply for a technical inspection at their discretion.

Inspection will remain mandatory for commercial vehicles such as taxis, buses and trucks. Owners of cars or motorcycles over four years of age must also pass it if they need to register or redesign the vehicle or hand it over to a new owner. According to State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin, this measure will “make life easier” for the owners of about 50 million vehicles.
