New refund rights after prison October 20, 2018
The government has amended the rules on the return of driver’s license after the deprivation.
October 20, 2018 for those who want to return driver’s license, will make it somewhat more difficult in connection with changes in the rules of the return of driver’s license after the loss of the grounds of termination of the right to control the vehicle, which was introduced by the Government of the Russian Federation on 10 October 2018.
Relevant document (resolution of the Government of the Russian Federation No. 1210) is now officially published on the Internet portal of state regulations. View the document here.
Recall that under current law until October 10, 2018 return of the licence after the end of the period of deprivation was regulated by the Decree of the Russian Government No. 1191 “On approval of rules of return of driver’s license after the loss of the grounds of termination of the right to drive a vehicle”, which was adopted on 14 November 2014.
So, according to the old decree No. 1191 to return driver’s license after the expiration of the deprivation of the driver must pass the theoretical exam in the traffic police. If the driver was deprived of rights for management in a state of alcohol or drugs or for refusing to undergo a medical examination in addition to exams on knowledge of traffic regulations for return of driver’s license you must also give the traffic police a medical certificate (even if you have expired rights).
However, contrary to popular myth that the drivers to return rights must also pay all for their outstanding fines for traffic violations in Resolution of the government No. 1191 this was not a word.
In the end, the bulk of the drivers, deprived earlier a driving licence and have debts for fines, quietly after the exams in the traffic police returned to their driver’s license without payment of fines. It is worth noting that many drivers did not pay the imposed fines on them. And many disenfranchised former formed a huge debts.
We will remind, especially those who were deprived of rights for driving under the influence, that driver not only deprived of the rights for a certain period, but subjected to a heavy fine in the amount of 30 000 rubles.
The result is now in the database of traffic police and FSSP a lot of cases against drivers who have large debts. Especially large debts of those drivers who previously were deprived of their rights several times. Not to mention the fines under criminal penalties.
According to experts, despite the fine, which for most Russians is a large sum, he didn’t stop the drivers who decided to drive drunk. After all, to return the rights not to be sure to pay assessed court fines.
In the end the Russian Government decided to change the procedure for the return of rights after prison, making the main condition to return not only the delivery of a theoretical examination in GAI, all the certificate (if the deprivation was for driving drunk or for refusal of medical examination), and PAYMENT of all fines.
In the end, since 20 October 2018, to return the rights to the disfranchised will have to pay all your unpaid fines. Otherwise, a driver’s license do not return even after successful completion of the theory and provide a certificate.
Traditionally, in connection with changes in the government’s Decree No. 1191, which were approved by Medvedev on 10 October 2018, to offer you answers to the most acute issues that may arise from motorists, deprived of their rights.
If you pay fines, return right on the day of payment?
The new Russian Federation Government Resolution №1210 clearly explains that the return of the rights is possible only in the presence of the State information system on state and municipal payments information on the payment in the prescribed manner imposed on the driver of administrative fines. However, a government Decree allows the traffic police to return law even in the absence of information about payment of fines to the state information system if the driver produces receipts on the held payments.
What are the exams in the traffic police need to take to return right?
As it is regulated past the government Decree, according to the new order of return of driver’s license to return a driver’s license, the driver must undergo a test of knowledge of traffic Rules.
The new Ruling clarified that the questions in the theoretical exam should only be directly related to the Rules of the road.
Where it is possible to return the rights after deprivation?
We will remind that earlier to return the driving license was only possible at the expiration of the term of deprivation of the right to management of vehicles in the division of the state traffic Inspectorate at the place of execution of the decision of the court in the administrative proceedings or court sentence in a criminal case on the same day on presentation of a passport or other document proving the identity. It was regulated by paragraph 5 of the resolution of the government No. 1191 dated 14 November 2014. However, to pass the theoretical exam can be in any division of traffic police.
Now according to the new Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation No. 1210 of 10.10.2018 year, all the disenfranchised have the right to return the driving license in any branch of the state traffic Inspectorate. However, this driver must be no later than 30 days prior to the expiration of the deprivation of rights to apply to the traffic police at the place of execution of the decision of the court in the administrative proceedings or court sentence in a criminal case, putting STSI where you want to send a driver’s license.
That is, for example, if you were denied rights in the Solnechnogorsk district of the Moscow region and your rights the entire term of deprivation was kept in police Solnechnogorsk, but you decided to return the rights, for example, in the city of Ryazan, not later than 30 days before the end of the period of deprivation you must apply to the traffic police Solnechnogorsk with a request to forward a driver’s license in the city of Ryazan, putting the division number and address.
