MOSCOW, June 30 (Itar-Tass) —— The State Duma will exempt cars that are regularly serviced in certified centres from annual examination for technical fitness, the chairman of the Duma Committee for Transport, Yevgeny Moskvichev of United Russia, said.
The committee advised the lower house of parliament to pass the relevant draft law in the second reading. Moskvichev believes that it will be debated in early July. “We have allowed these dealers to carry out technical examination. They are required to get accreditation and when the owner of a car brings his vehicle for a technical examination, he will be given a certificate confirming that the car is in good order or a diagnostic map that will have the same status,” the MP said.
In addition, the draft law may abolish a provision that requires a car owner to a certificate of technical examination valid for at least six months when applying for compulsory motor third-party liability insurance policy.
Another amendment will allow car owners to get a compulsory motor third-party liability insurance policy without presenting such certificate when heading to a place of technical examination or vehicle registration of up to 20 days, an increase of 5 days from the initial version passed in the first reading on April 25.
