An electronic service for presenting a driver’s license through the mobile application “Gosuslugi Avto” will be launched from October 1. At the same time, as Mikhail Chernikov, head of the Main Directorate for Road Safety of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia, said, a driver’s license in paper form should still be available.
“From October 1, 2022, it is planned to launch an electronic service upon presentation of a driver’s license in the State Services Auto mobile application. It is still mandatory for a car owner to have a driver’s license in paper form, since its complete replacement with an electronic format will become possible only after the relevant amendments are made to the traffic rules of the Russian Federation“, – he said.
Currently, one of the tasks of the traffic police is to post on the portal with the icon “Gosuslugi Avto” a complete package of documents (driver’s license, OSAGO, STS), which the owner of the vehicle can provide in electronic form, and legally drive the car. Last year, drivers were given the opportunity to show electronically a vehicle registration certificate (CTC) in test mode.
