Not so long ago, certain changes were made to the rules of technical inspection. Now new vehicles are transferred to the new owners along with the current TO coupon. This allows the car buyer not to pass a technical inspection for three years from the moment of using the car.

The place of registration of transport will not matter now. In addition, the list of required documents for the procedure is reduced.
