The new law was another good news for car owners. The first one pleased them in mid-June, when a decree of the Russian government was signed on the exchange of driving licenses issued by the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the DPR, LPR and Ukraine for Russian national driving licenses without exams.

citizens of the DNR or LNR;

citizens of Russia who received citizenship in a simplified manner;
