– the need to expand the registration capacity for reduced license plates, due to the reported depletion of registration capacity for these plates by some registration authorities;
– the introduction of reduced antique license plates and antique moped plates, as requested by the antique vehicle owner community;
– the need to maintain continuity in the process of vehicle registration and the conditions for the production of license plates, as well as regulations under the history of the Regulation on Vehicle Registration and Marking.
In addition, in the regulation:
– the possibility of placing requests for an additional license plate and for retaining the existing registration number on the back of the vehicle registration application has been dropped, in view of the inclusion of these issues in the models that are annexes to the regulation;
– the catalog of documents proving ownership has been amended, but it will continue to be an open catalog;
– abandoned the requirement to submit with the application for deregistration of a vehicle due to theft a certificate issued by the competent police authority confirming the report of vehicle theft or a decision to discontinue the investigation of vehicle theft issued by the competent authority, operating without a statutory requirement.
