Based on the Draft Law on Road Traffic Order and Safety, each driving license will be allotted 12 points for 12 months, following the example of other countries.
If all points are deducted, the driving license will become invalid. To obtain a new driver’s license, drivers must undergo a minimum of six months of studying and testing.
Furthermore, if the driver does not have all points deducted within one year from the last deduction, the authorities will reinstate 12 points for the upcoming year. However, if all the points haven’t been deducted, they must be deducted before the 12 points can be reissued for the following year. Alternatively, if a year passes without any violations, additional points will be added.
The Ministry of Public Security has put forth a proposal under the Draft Law on Ensuring Road Traffic Order and Safety, which outlines 28 infractions that will lead to the deduction of points from driving licenses. This proposal aims to influence behavior, increase awareness among road users, and facilitate the comprehensive monitoring of drivers’ compliance with post-violation regulations by management authorities.
A total of 28 violations resulted in points being deducted.
In the revised version of the aforementioned Law, the Ministry of Public Security has put forward 28 administrative violations that warrant sanctions and point deductions from driving licenses (driver’s license-PV).
