Police will not be allowed to randomly stop a vehicle to check ownership certificate as the new regulation on penalties for the non-transfer of vehicle ownership takes effect next year.


Police banned from pulling vehicles over to check ownership

Starting from January 1, individuals will face VND100,000 (USD4.47) to VND200,000 fine and organisations will be fined VND200,000-400,000 for failing to transfer their vehicles' ownership. Car owners will face fines of VND2m-4m.

According to the guidance by the HCM City's road and railway traffic police division. Vehicles' owners must start the transfer process within 30 days after being given or sold their new vehicles.

Traffic police has been asked not to pull over vehicles just to check ownership. The ownership certificate should only be checked in order to serve the investigations of severe accidents or during vehicle ownership transfer process.

In accordance with the Ministry of Public Security's directive and Resolution 46, police will also not check for the certificate when checking for driver licences and other papers of other violations so that people who borrow vehicles from friends or relatives won't have to prove the ownership of the vehicles.

Individuals or organisations whose motorbike, three-wheeled or electric bikes have had several owners but change of ownership hadn't been completed are advised to complete the procedure by the end of December 31.
