Also, from January it will be prohibited to return the rights to the violator until he has paid the fines.
From October 1, 2020, more global changes will come into force, the article says. In particular, they will combine two previously separate parts of the exam – the “city” and the “site”, and the practical exam itself will last half an hour.
