Appeal of the Main State Traffic Police Department

16 “August” 2019-th

As you know, last year a number of amendments were made to the relevant articles of the Law of the Republic of Azerbaijan "On Road Traffic". 

First of all, it is necessary to take into account changes in the time of submitting of vehicles for technical inspection. Thus, vehicles and trucks with a maximum mass of up to 3.5 tonnes are submitted once every two years – after four years from the manufacture date; after ten years from the date of manufacture, they must be submitted once a year for technical inspection.

At the same time, the vehicle may be inspected after payment of the administrative penalties imposed on the owner of the vehicle or another person entitled to dispose of it. As soon as an electronic ticket for the technical inspection of the car is compiled, it will be immediately sent electronically to the Information System of Main State Traffic Police Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the “ASAN payment” system.

However, in accordance with the relevant amendments to the Law of the Republic of Azerbaijan “On Road Traffic”, the timeframe for determining the date of the next technical inspection shall be calculated from the date of the previous technical inspection. Failure to do so within 20 days from the date of the next technical inspection of the vehicle will result in liability in accordance with the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Republic of Azerbaijan. As we have mentioned, after this period, according to Article 339.1-1 of the Code of Administrative Offenses, unmanaged vehicles are detected with the help of special vehicles during their participation in the traffic and an electronic decision on administrative penalties is issued.

Please note that the Main State Traffic Police Department in Baku, Sabunchu district, Zabrat settlement and other regional technical departments of the Republic are open until 18:00, including Sunday, to provide vehicles for technical inspection.
