What to do for motorists whose technical inspection expired on October 1

The Russian Union of Auto Insurers has issued an official instruction for those motorists who have received a six-month stitching for diagnostic cards.

On October 1, 2021, the validity period of diagnostic cards automatically renewed from February 1 will expire. The Russian Union of Auto Insurers has issued an official instruction for those motorists who fell under this decree and received a six-month delay.

Those for whom the automatically renewed diagnostic card expires on October 1 must undergo a technical inspection in the usual manner established by the Law on Technical Inspection. Insurers recommend that car owners check the validity period of the DC. If the validity period of the diagnostic card expired in February 2021, then the inspection must be completed no later than October 1, 2021. If the validity period expires on June 30, then the technical inspection must be completed by December 30, 2021. That is, six months must be added to the date in the Palace of Culture.

From August 22, 2021, the CMTPL policy can be issued without going through a technical inspection, that is, now the diagnostic card does not need to be presented to the insurance company, as it was before. However, technical inspection is still mandatory for car owners.
