Video: Russian Drivers Will Be Allowed Not To Carry Their Driving License
The Ministry of Digital Development of Russia plans to conduct an experiment in which drivers will be able to use a mobile application instead of a driver's license - and present a QR code if necessary. This was announced during the Gaidar Forum by the Deputy Minister of the Ministry Oleg Kachanov.
- “We already have a certain plan, we have worked out it with colleagues from the Ministry of Internal Affairs, agreed and in the format of an experiment would like to launch it in 2021 on the territory of the selected subjects,” Kachanov said. Where exactly the experiment will be launched, he did not specify, but added that we are talking about the "most digital" subjects.
- According to the deputy minister, drivers could not carry their license and vehicle registration certificate with them, but instead use an application on the State Services platform, which would contain all the necessary information. The inspector will only need to read the QR code with the appropriate device.
In mid-January, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko appealed to Vladimir Putin with a request to support the initiative to conduct an experiment on the use of digital "twins" of some documents, writes TASS. It can be not only a driver's license and a car registration certificate, but also an identity card with a registration certificate.
- In the fall of 2020, the Ministry of Economic Development proposed to allow the use of a driver's license for simplified identification. This means that the identity card can begin to be accepted as an additional document of identity.
