(PLO)- Transport associations and the Registry have simultaneously proposed prioritizing registration for vehicles that are about to expire, extending the current registration cycle for non-commercial vehicles.
It has been more than a month since the Ministry of Transport issued Circular 02/2023 allowing the registration period to be extended with the expectation that it will solve the registration congestion in the past time. However, after a period of implementation, the registration congestion is still on an increasing trend.
Meanwhile, people and businesses face many difficulties and troubles with the expired vehicle registration. Many funny stories have happened: The owner of the car after the registration deadline has not been able to register, and when traveling on the road, the traffic police will be fined. The fault is not in the people and businesses, but it is they who have to suffer the battle, which increases the frustration.
Circular 02 of the Ministry of Transport was born at the time when the registration industry was in a state of boiling water. Accordingly, Circular 02 allows to extend the registration period for many types of vehicles, including newly purchased cars and for cars in circulation, depending on the year of manufacture.
According to the Registry, there are currently 3.1 million non-transport vehicles (family cars, personal cars) in circulation. While the cars are exempt from inspection each year about 500,000 units.
To process the registration of this number of 3.1 million vehicles, it takes up to six months. Half a year, the damage due to late registration, who bears the burden for people and businesses? Overall, it is also a loss to the economy when many transportation activities are disrupted, related activities are interrupted…
To solve the above situation is not without solutions. Transport associations and Registry Departments have also simultaneously proposed prioritizing registration for vehicles that are about to expire, extending the current registration cycle for non-commercial vehicles. This is considered the only solution, helping to reduce registration congestion immediately. For more than a month, associations have continuously “begged for help”, proposed and recommended, but the situation is not very positive.
At the meeting of Deputy Prime Minister Tran Hong Ha with ministries, branches, representatives of associations, experts and managers on the draft Decree amending and supplementing a number of articles of Decree 139/2018 on the afternoon of 4 -5, Mr. Ha agreed to extend the online registration cycle.
This is probably very good news for people, businesses and the registry industry. Thus, the most urgent problem of the registry industry has been solved. However, in order for the Deputy Prime Minister’s direction to put into practice, relevant ministries and branches need to immediately start working with the most urgent spirit. People and businesses have worked hard for the past few months, don’t let people suffer any more!
