Ways to legally move on unregistered cars

Russian legislation allows the driver to drive a car that is not registered in his name. There are three main options:

  1. MTPL policy for this car should allow any driver to drive. This type of insurance is a bit more expensive, it allows any driver, with the right category, to use the car legally. You do not need to enter anything anywhere else.
  2. The policy of CTP indicates a limited list of people who can manage this vehicle. If, when stopped by an inspector, you are not written into such a document, the penalty for this will be 500-800 rubles. The machine is sent to the car park. Do not save even the presence of a number of the owner of this machine.
  3. The purchase and sale agreement (DCT) on a car is made.

In this case, the driver has 10 days to re-execute documents, during which he can ride a car that has not been re-registered.

Manipulations with DCT

Not very conscientious citizens have come up with a clever way to circumvent the legal part of the re-registration. Every 10 days they rewrite DCT to extend the period. This is easy to do, especially since this document does not require any assurances from third parties, for example, a notary. Enough two signatures and dates. Sometimes even the date is not set to write it yourself, and not to rewrite a new sheet each time.

Other re-registration options

One of the options for "selling" cars is called "sale by proxy". However, in fact, the owner in this case does not change. Documents still remain on the first owner.
