In Hotel “Centre wille” in Podgorica a conference “Austrian model of vehicle registration” has been held, organized by National Bureau of Montenegro Insurers (NBOCG) in cooperation with the Supervisory Authority and VVO – Austrian Insurers Association

The participants have been presented the advantages of this model of registration and vehicle insurance as well as possible positive implication for the business of Insurance Companies in Montenegro, provided we apply some of its solutions. The Austrian model is characterized by the fact that insurers issue insurance policy and register vehicles at the same place. This solution significantly quicken the whole procedure to citizens’ benefits. At the same time, by cooperation with Police it is possible to more efficiently control the registration of vehicles. The police, in case of the expiry of insurance policy, is informed trough mutual Information system and immediately reacts by confiscating plates of the uninsured vehicle. This is very efficient solution, considering that Austria has the rate of uninsured driving which is indicated in promil – concludes Šaban.
