He explained that the new standard included Gosznak for these vehicles, but they can only be issued after the adoption of relevant normative-legal acts which will regulate their registration.

«The fact that the state Duma has recently approved a new law on registration of vehicles. It provides that the police is not going to order and give anyone registration marks. This law included a provision that the government may approve the order of registration of separate kinds of vehicles. I think, next year this will not be before the law came into force,» — said the Agency interlocutor.

According to Kapustin, for motorcycle registration plates is reduced, as many, especially imported, the site cannot accommodate such a large size as it is now.
