From April 1, 2021, new rules for driving license exams should come into force. Instead of three stages – theory, site and city – there will be two. The ability to ride a snake or pack in parallel will no longer be looked at. All driving skills, wishing to get a license, will be appreciated in real conditions of city traffic.
Such changes are due to the fact that on the so-called site it is impossible to understand exactly how safe the driver will be on the road. Therefore, all these exercises will need to be applied when passing the “city” stage. The head of the traffic police of Russia, Mikhail Chernikov, said that special attention will be paid to driving skills on highways, intersections and junctions, writes RIA Novosti. The innovations are aimed at ensuring that after obtaining a license, drivers in the real conditions of the city would be safer, and accordingly they would be less involved in an accident.
Driver candidates will continue to be evaluated using a point system. From 1 to 3 points depending on the error. In case of gross violations, such as using the phone while driving, or not wearing a seat belt, the exam will end immediately. Such mistakes are not typical for Tambovites. But future drivers sin by not giving an advantage to pedestrians and other cars. In addition, candidates violate the U-turn rules; when turning, they forget to turn on the gate and move into the outer lane.
According to statistics, for the first half of 2020, 494 accidents were registered in the Tambov region, in which 653 people were injured and 59 died.
