According to the drafter, the new rule is expected to simplify procedures and reduce costs and time for users.
In light of this, owners of brand-new vehicles can submit dossiers at registration agencies to receive stamps without having to bring in their vehicles.
It also extends the interval between the two checks from 30 months to 36 months for those that have up to nine seats and not engaged in transport service. Meanwhile, the period will be lengthened from 18 months to 24 months for vehicles up to seven years old.
For those with more than nine seats, it will be 24 months instead of 18 months. After they become five years old, the period will be extended to 12 months instead of six months.
Regarding the group of trucks of all kinds which were produced 20 years or more ago, the interval between the two checks will be extended from three to six months.- (VLLF)
