Is it necessary to re-register a car after the owner's death?

Driving a car requires the availability of relevant documents, as well as a valid OSAGO insurance policy. But what if the owner of the car has died? Who has the right to drive the vehicle and what steps should be taken to do so?

Who can drive a car after the owner's death?

Anyone can drive a car whose owner has died. To do this, it is enough to have the relevant documents, namely a technical passport, driver's license and a valid car insurance policy. After 6 months, you can inherit the car by documenting your right to do so. To do this, you need to contact a notary.

Obtaining compensation in the event of an accident

OSAGO covers expenses related to third parties and their property. So, in the event of an accident caused by you, even if you are not the owner of the car, the insurance company will pay for the damage. 

However, if the accident was caused by the fault of another party, i.e., you are to receive the payment, you will need to prove your right to drive (by means of a power of attorney or other grounds).
