In Russia came into force new rules of registration of vehicles for which license plates will be assigned by random computer algorithm.
This is stated in the MIA order No. 399. The order stated that the car number algorithm will be selected from all available state license plates. Therefore, the inspector will not know until the last which number has program a particular vehicle. This provision will become mandatory for all registration offices.
Under the new rules, citizens will be able to register cars is not only on the passport. Now to register the car it will also be possible for temporary identity card.
Shelf life license plates under the new regulations increased to 360 days, which is two times more than was allowed before.
As noted in the interior Ministry, the new system of issuing license plates have already been tested in Moscow. The Ministry assured that the innovation will allow to avoid corruption related to the purchase of “beautiful” numbers.
It is worth noting that from next year on domestically manufactured and imported cars to Russia will issue electronic passports instead of paper issued now.
