The requirement to produce in concluding the compulsory insurance agreement the technical inspection certificate or the certificate of a transport vehicle having passed state technical inspection, whose validity expires over six months earlier than the expiry of the proposed term of the compulsory insurance agreement being concluded, is found null and void.
