Iran’s Integrated System of Vehicle Inspection has enabled the police to identify vehicles that lack inspection documents and drivers who carry fake certificates, by providing quick access to technical inspection data on police online networks.

“As soon as a car is inspected and certified, the data is uploaded on police networks to provide instant access across the country,” said head of Iran Traffic Police Brigadier General Taqi Mehri, in a talk with the Persian-language newspaper ‘Iran’.

Drivers are required to present their driving license as well as technical inspection and insurance papers when flagged down by the police, he said.

The system has created interaction between the Law Enforcement Forces, the Interior Ministry, the Department of Environment, the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development and several other government entities to help ensure the safety of passengers, vehicles and the environment, Mehri added.

Noting the number of road casualties involving the domestically-manufactured car ‘Pride’, the official said the police are cooperating with carmakers to improve the quality of their vehicles and ensure that safety equipment, including airbags, are installed.  

He also pointed to the amnesty in payment of traffic fines for violations in the past Iranian year that ended in March.

“The amnesty is only for late payment and will expire on June 20.”

Drivers can refer to the website for more information on payment of fines. Information on the negative points on driving licenses for traffic violations is also on the website.
