Mandatory inspection is canceled in Russia | News from Germany about Russia | DW

The State Duma at its plenary session on Wednesday, December 22, adopted in the third reading a law on the abolition of the mandatory technical inspection in Russia. Accordingly, henceforth the owners of personal cars and motorcycles will no longer need to undergo a technical inspection and receive a diagnostic card to obtain a compulsory motor third party liability insurance policy (OSAGO).

Nothing has changed for commercial vehicles.

Compulsory technical inspection will remain for commercial vehicles, including taxis, buses, trucks, and personal vehicles used for business purposes. Owners of vehicles over four years old will still need to go through the procedure when they are sold and registered.

The document may enter into force as early as January 1, 2022. As expected, the cancellation of technical inspection will directly affect approximately 50 million car owners in Russia.

Passed law on criminal punishment of reckless drivers

In addition, the deputies of the State Duma immediately adopted in the second and third readings the law on criminal punishment for dangerous ride. Violators of the rules of the road now face a sentence of up to two years in prison for driving into the oncoming lane or speeding.
