on social media

Unlike in some Western countries, in Ukraine you cannot just drive somebody else’s vehicle without a certain document. Recently, the rules have changed regarding the document that must be carried by a driver who does not own the vehicle they are driving.

In the past, a secondary driver needed to carry a proxy (dovirynist), an official document signed by the primary owner and the traffic bureau that allowed him or her to drive the car of the primary owner. But now secondary drivers must carry a different document – a temporary permit (tymchasovy talon) – that serves essentially the same purpose.

Those who haven’t exchanged their proxies for the permit may be fined if caught.
