 Interior Minister Avakov says no plans to retest drivers every five years

The Interior Ministry has no intention to shorten the validity period of driver's licences to five years.

As reported by Censor.NET, this was announced by Interior Minister Arsen Avakov on his Facebook page answering the questions by social media users.

"There are some best practices on driver's licences, and we'll keep up with them. There will be no 'every five years.' We have existing legislation," the minister wrote answering a question of whether it's true that driver's licence tests must be passed by drivers every five years.

It was announced earlier by Deputy Interior Minister on European Integration Anastasiia Dieieva that the Main Service Center of the Interior Ministry was drafting a bill to amend traffic laws. This allegedly included shortening the validity period for driver's licences down to 5-15 years and integrating a chiplet into the driver's ID.
