The Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs has developed new rules for passing the driver’s license exam, the MVD Media news agency reports. Currently, these rules are at the stage of public discussion on a single portal of draft regulatory legal acts.

According to the new rules, the department intends to increase the maximum allowable number of penalty points from five to seven during the exam. When this number of points is reached, the student will be given a “failed” grade. In addition, it is proposed to expand the list of reasons why a citizen may not be allowed to take the exam.

These changes will affect persons “who do not have the right to drive vehicles of other categories and subcategories, while being subject to administrative penalties for driving while intoxicated.”

We are also talking about those who refused to undergo a medical examination before the expiration of the administrative punishment, draft dodgers and citizens with an expired passport or medical certificate. For the latter, the exam process will be suspended until valid documents are presented.

The new regulations for passing the driving test will come into force on April 1, 2024.
