Driver’s license will be mandatory for all types of moped and quad-bike drivers, Interior Minister Vakhtang Gomelauri said earlier today.

“The main problem is that the movement of mopeds is not monitored by surveillance cameras, so we [Interior Ministy] cannot fine moped drivers. Drivers frequently violate traffic rules of road and become reason of road accidents”, said Gomelauri.

Interior Minister said a new AM category of transport will be introduced for mopeds and light  quad-bikes.

Drivers should register their mopeds and quad-biked in the Service Agency of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia.

A new bill on making driver’s license mandatory for all types of moped and quad-bikes was proposed to the parliament in 2019.

The parliament passed the bill with its second reading.
