Fines levied from drivers who do not have a driving license while driving will be abolished in Moldova

The relevant amendments to the legislation were initiated by the State Chancellery. In accordance with the changes, car owners who drive a vehicle will no longer be fined if they do not have a driving license with them. The fines in the Code of Offenses for driving a vehicle by a person who does not have a driver’s license will be levied only from persons who are not the owners of the car and are on an international trip. For them, the fine will remain at the level of 3 to 6 conventional units with the accrual of 2 penalty points. Car owners will be able to confirm the availability of a driving license by means of other documents. As noted in the explanatory note to the draft, the law on data exchange and interaction allowed state institutions to exchange data on citizens on the “single-window” basis. Technically, road agents may not ask for driving licenses the drivers who drive their own vehicles on the national roads. However, the measure relating to the driver’s license could not be implemented, since the Code of Offenses and the Rules of the Road explicitly provided for penalties for drivers who do not have a driver’s license. The proposed changes apply only to drivers who are driving their own car when they are stopped by the police. Road agents do not yet have the technical ability to check the driver's license of persons who are not driving their own car, as well as if they are on an international trip. Consultations on the project are held until September 18: http://particip.gov.md/proiectview.php?l=ro&idd=6614. // 10.09.2019 – InfoMarket
