Remember that the technical inspection for individuals, car and motorcycle owners, becomes voluntary. But up to certain limits. When buying a car older than four years, before registering it, you will need to pass an inspection and receive a diagnostic card. If the owner of the car is going to drive it abroad, he will also need to obtain a diagnostic card. In general, it is not for everyone voluntary.
The maximum cost of this service is set by the regional authorities. But the methodology that existed until recently allowed them to set prices at which not a single maintenance point could work. Therefore, they worked on a different principle. Not entirely legal, but allows you to retrieve the content of the TO point.
And now a new drug has been released. According to him, the regional authorities must collect from July 1 of each year until August 1 of each year the confirmed expenses of the operators, including payroll funds. Then, based on these data, the maximum fee for MOT will be calculated using a special formula.
If operators do not submit data or submit incomplete data, regional authorities must notify them by August 15.
If less than half of the accredited operators in the region submit information and their proposals on tariffs, then the regional authorities will use the previous tariff, but taking into account the inflation rate and the consumer price index.
It is obvious that these data did not arrive in due time.
Simply because by the time the document was officially published, these deadlines had already passed. But, the document established the minimum possible rates. That is, the regions below them simply cannot set the maintenance cost.
For a passenger car, the fee cannot be less than 913 rubles. For buses up to 5 tons – 1563 rubles, more than 5 tons – 1888 rubles. For trucks up to 3.5 tons, it cannot be less than 999 rubles, from 3.5 to 12 tons – 1821 rubles, more than 12 tons – 1966 rubles. For motorcycles, the fee cannot be less than 321 rubles.
So far, official rates have been much lower in most regions. Even in Moscow – 720 rubles. In the Oryol region – 300 rubles. In the Bryansk region, the official rate today is 305 rubles, in the Kurgan region – 362 rubles, in the Kursk region – 367 rubles.
Thus, according to the methodology, where below the established minimums, maintenance prices will rise to them. Where else – at the level of inflation.
Already now, in the Moscow region, it was considered necessary to set a fee of 940 rubles for cars.
In Karelia, Mordovia, Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug, Chuvashia, Altai, Stavropol Territories, Astrakhan, Kaluga, Kostroma, Kursk, Orenburg, Smolensk Regions, the minimum fee provided for by the methodology was approved, that is, 913 rubles. Also received in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), the Yamal-Nenets Okrug, Novosibirsk, Omsk, Oryol, Pskov, Sverdlovsk, Tambov, Tyumen, Chelyabinsk autonomous regions. For the Kursk region, this is almost two and a half times more expensive.
In the Amur Region, the cost of maintaining a passenger car will be 1,401 rubles. It was – 1300 rubles. But such an increase in value corresponds at least to annual inflation.
In the Leningrad region, the service will also cost 1,401 rubles. Although against today’s 990 rubles, even according to the methodology, the fee is too high. In any case, it was not considered based on inflation. And other methods are not applicable yet.
The same tariff will be established in the Kamchatka and Khabarovsk territories.
Those regions that have not yet had time to revise maintenance fees according to the new methodology will have to do so in the near future.
But next year another part of this methodology will start to work, according to which operators will have to present their reasonable calculations. Of course, they may be higher than those set by local authorities. And they may not be. For example, according to Kommersant, St. Petersburg will become the record holder for the cost of maintaining a passenger car from 1.5 thousand rubles. Although now there is a fee of 881 rubles. Obviously, the new rate significantly covers inflation. And it also exceeds the established minimum. In general, it is obvious that the FAS will still have to check the legality of setting fees for MOT according to the new methodology in various regions.
In addition, it is obvious that in any case, even the established rate will have to be adjusted for inflation. And we don’t have it negative. So in 2024 it is worth waiting for a new increase in the cost of MOT.
The government of the Tambov region by decree fixed the maximum rates to pass the technical inspection next year. The document enters into force on January 1.
The minimum cost of the technical examination of ordinary vehicles will be 913 rubles for cars. A little more expensive – 999 rubles – will cost the inspection of a light truck with a maximum weight of not more than 3.5 tons. The ITV of a bus and a large truck will cost 1888 and 1821 rubles, respectively.
Tariffs have risen by a third. In 2021, the cost of MOT for a passenger car was set at 600 rubles, a truck – at 1259.
In the Omsk region, the fees for technical inspections will more than double from the new year. The corresponding resolution was signed by the regional government. The reason for such a sharp jump is not connected with the exorbitant price, but only with the fact that the tariff for this service has not changed since 2015.
– The tariff remained stable, since the organizations that perform the maintenance did not request a revision of their marginal cost, – explained the regional REC.
Now they decided to bring this figure to the lowest “denominator” of all Russia. As a result, starting in 2023, the passenger car inspection for Omsk residents will increase from 376 to 913 rubles. For the maintenance of trucks weighing more than 3.5 tons, you will have to pay about two thousand (previously it was 852 rubles), buses – 999 rubles (previously 401 rubles).
Motorists are not too worried about this. For trucks, passenger transport and taxis, the amounts that the owners will pay once a year are quite high. But maintenance operators are not at all happy with the new rates.
– After the abolition of the mandatory technical inspection, the customer base sank significantly. Over the past seven years, the price of equipment has increased many times. And the renewal of the production base becomes unprofitable, – explained in NP “Technopark”.
In Chuvashia, the new fees for the technical inspection of passenger cars will increase by 64%, from the current 557 rubles to 913 rubles. For trucks, the maximum fee will increase to 999 rubles instead of 594 rubles. Motor vehicle owners will have to pay 321 rubles for maintenance instead of 186 rubles. The last time MOT fees were increased in Chuvashia exactly one year ago – from January 1, 2022. Then the cost of MOT of cars increased by almost 30% (from 430 to 557 rubles).
If this year the maintenance points set prices based on the maximum fee of 498 rubles, then the next year the authorities raised the bar to 913.
But it turned out that this does not mean at all that gas stations set exactly the same price for customers. Much depends on the location of the station, its popularity. So, the head of one of the oldest specialized companies located in a very convenient place for motorists – on the Yekaterinburg Ring Road – told RG that at the current rate of 498 rubles, its price is 492 rubles, in the next one with a larger one – exactly 900. But at the maintenance point, located far from the main traffic flows, they decided not to make sudden movements so as not to scare off car owners; for now, they set the bar at the level of 710 rubles. “And we’ll see.”
