A number of improvements for drivers are being introduced over and over again. From December 5, 2020, there is no obligation to bring a driving license. These changes, trivial as they may seem, are a kind of convenience for drivers, and also relieve drivers from thinking when going on a trip. Road control that can happen to us is usually stressful, so lifting the obligation to have documents has a positive effect and will help us avoid a fine for not having them.

What documents are not needed while driving the vehicle?

From October 1, 2018, with the introduction of the amendment to road traffic, the obligation to was abolished have a registration certificate and confirmation of concluding a third-party liability insurance policy . This waiver applies while moving the car, but does not exempt us from physical possession of them. The registration certificate will still be needed when performing a technical inspection of the vehicle, when selling it or traveling abroad. The obligation to conclude a third party liability insurance policy remains unchanged. Vehicle insurance is required. The abolition of having with you a receipt for the conclusion of an appropriate third party liability insurance does not release you from concluding it.

What about the driving license?

The new changes that have been introduced have also exempted us from having a driving license with us . From December 5, 2020, we can therefore move around the country without this document. This next facility is a beneficial solution for us. During an inspection by the police, in the absence of this document, we would get a fine of PLN 50. The same applies to the registration certificate and liability policy. The amount in the absence of these three documents gives a fine of PLN 150 in the times when their possession was required while moving the vehicle. However, if you want to have a driving license in a form other than a plastic card , it is possible to obtain a driving license. You should then have the mObywatel application and a trusted profile. The electronic driving license in the form of a smartphone application will contain basic information about the driver. We will find there personal data, driving license number, driving license category, expiry date and a photo. However, we emphasize that it is not necessary to have it when driving a vehicle or during a police inspection. For more at Laweta Sławków
