Is there  a change to the insurance obligation in the new law?

The new law does not change the obligation to insure one's vehicle.

The new law, however, exempts from the insurance obligation lightweight unregistered vehicles intended exclusively for use by disabled persons.

In addition, it is no longer necessary to take out motor liability insurance for vehicles that have been withdrawn from use. However, it is worth noting that in this case the insurance must be cancelled separately. If the motor liability insurance has been cancelled, it has to be taken out again before informing Trafi that the vehicle is back on the road.
