Electronic services when registering cars launched

INSTEAD of visiting the road inspectorate personally, Slovaks are able to administer several duties online as of April 1. These innovations include, among other things, an overview of obligatory car insurance or information on technical and emission checks, as well as on the structure of car ownership.

Beginning in April, the Interior Ministry launched into normal operation a total of 26 electronic services, the SITA newswire informed.

“With the information services, citizens are able to ask also for a legally binding document,” the ministry’s press department wrote. “However, this requires the citizen to have a guaranteed electronic signature in his ID card – which also must have a chip.”

To use the new electronic services, one needs an ID card with a chip (which have been issued since December 2013), and an electronic certificate proving the car’s registration – a so-called small technical certificate – with a chip (issued since 2010). For some services, also an electronic signature is necessary.

Apart from information, the ministry has also launched so-called transaction services, e.g. application for the replacement of a plate with license number in case of theft or loss. A car can be also registered and de-registered online.

Thus, the biggest novelty and advantage is that people need not visit the road inspectorate personally; and for those steps which have to be done in person (e.g. taking over the license plates), people will be able to arrange a fixed time.

The electronic services have been tested for several months with five car dealers. They are part of a huge project worth €42 million, part of which is also a special technology for police cars. The electronic services are available at portal.minv.sk, or at www.slovensko.sk.
