The Ministry of Economic Development has submitted to the Government draft acts that propose to assign citizens the right to reserve state license plates for registering cars and motorcycles. Amendments are proposed to the Federal law on vehicle registration and the Budget code of the Russian Federation.
In particular, the possibility of selecting personalized licence plates (e.g. numbers with numerals 001, 100, 111 and the same lettering, etc.), as well as any available for the registration license plate when contacting the authorized Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia through the Unified Portal of Public and Municipal Services (including on participation in the auction).
In addition to the personalised ones, when passing the state registration, the vehicle owner can simply choose any of the available free license plates. Cases of free use of a reserved license plate when changing the vehicle owner are also regulated. In particular, the fee will not be charged in cases of acceptance of the vehicle in the order of inheritance and when re-registering a car previously registered to a citizen under 16 years of age.
"Vehicle owners will be able to choose license plates absolutely legally, without services of intermediaries. Thus, the Ministry of Economic Development proposes to make absolutely transparent and open the processes of acquiring the alphanumeric combination of interest," said state Secretary-Deputy Minister of economic development Alexey Khersontsev.
