Important to know

A license of every type is issued for a company (a limited liability company (LLC), a private company, a joint-stock company etc.) or for a sole trader. There are no license cards anymore. Nowadays all information about a vehicle is in the digital register. 

The State Service of Ukraine for Transport Safety issues extracts (instead of licenses) from its digital register since the beginning of 2017. You can look through these extracts at this web-page in the section "Our successful projects".

A blank of the extract is kept at the address which is declared as office of the business.

Answers to frequently asked questions

Can I get a license for transportation activities without own transport?

Yes, you can. It is not obligation to have a right of ownership for a transport. It is enough to lease cars for providing services and getting the licenses. At the same time, except a lease agreement, you have to get a temporary vehicle technical specification certificate.

Is it necessarily to have an agreement with a motor transport company?

No, it isn't necessarily to have an agreement. If a driver provides services without hired workers on his own vehicle then a lease agreement may not be signed. Also it is allowed to sign a simplified form of an agreement in a case of international transportation activities.

Can I get a license for international transportation activities at once?

Yes, but not for all types of transportation activities. The only type is an international transportation of cargo (not ADR). If you want to get a license for international transportation of passengers by taxi, by cars to order, by buses and international transportation of dangerous cargo and waste then you must confirm it with 3-years of experience in this sphere at the territory of Ukraine. For this you have to submit an appropriate license.

Can a company with its own fleet vehicle not get a license for transportation activities?

Yes, you can. A company may not get a license if it uses departmental vehicles not for providing services for transportation of passengers or cargo to other companies/organizations or to individuals but for its own activities.

License for transportation by vehicles

To obtain transportation license it is required to have personal or rented vehicles.

Until 2010 every type of transportation had to be licensed. But nowadays internal transportation of cargo does not have to be licensed (except internal transportation of hazardous materials).

License allows conduct transportation activities within territory of Ukraine. You must have 3 years of work experience with an internal license if you want to get an international one (for example, international passenger transportation).

Validity of license for passenger transportation, taxi service and transportation of hazardous materials is unlimited.

Payment for obtainment of license is transferred to an account of state budget which is opened at local division of state treasury at the location of licensee, payment code is 22011800.

A license for a taxi

A license for a taxi is one of the most popular transportation licenses.

If you want to get it your vehicle must be equipped with:

  • a recognizable lantern on the roof of a vehicle;
  • a serviceable taximeter;
  • green and red signal lanterns in the upper right corner of a car's windshield;
  • composition of square lines on the sides.

It should be noted that this equipment isn't checked during the procedure of getting a license.

Only persons who are above 21 years old can be taxi drivers. 

UBER license in Ukraine

Our company helps to get UBER licenses for drivers ever since it launched in Ukraine. Passenger transportations by cars to order are licensed. We cooperate with UBER drivers and partners from Kyiv, Odessa, Lviv and other cities of Ukraine. 

UBER license shouldn't be confused with a license for a taxi (an activity with taximeter). There are other requirements for it.

A license for passenger transportations 

A license for passenger transportation is issued for regular and not-regular carriers (including charter trips).

If you want to get this license then you must have at least one D type vehicle. If you rent a bus then you have to provide not only a lease agreement but also a temporary vehicle technical specification certificate which is issued for a legal entity or entrepreneur who is going to get a license.

A license for passenger and cargo transportation for municipal and state companies 

Our lawyers represent not only private sector interests but also interests of municipal and state companies while licensing passenger and cargo transportation.

Very often they need the license for a participation in intercity, inter-district, interregional competitions and tenders for providing transportation services. 

These clients also need to have an escort for bus transportations by buses and cars to order very often.

There is a popular question "Whether municipal and state companies (including private companies) have to get a license for transportation?" Answering for this question, we need to admit that the licenses are issued for licensees who plan to provide services for citizens and other companies and organizations. As follows, departmental transport, which is used for companies' necessities, and vehicles which are not used for transportations (construction and agricultural vehicles) don't have to be licensed.

Typical procedure of service provision for transportation lisence

When term, cost and procedure of license obtainment are agreed Client signs an agreement of legal services provision. If you need to sign an agreement with a motor transport company our firm may help to draft and enter into agreement. When all the required documents are prepared and signed by Client our lawyers file the documents to the State Automobile Inspection in Kyiv or Kyiv region.

When a positive decision on issuance of license is made Client pays state duty for the license (payment code 22011800) and sends the payment document to our legal experts.

If there is a need the payment may be performed by our lawyers on behalf of a Client. In this case Client provides only bank requisites and the required amount of money. The requisites must include number of account, name and code of recipient, name and inter-branch turnover of recipient bank. For companies registered in Kyiv it is not required to get requisites.

Within the agreed term Client receives an extract from the digital register of the State Service of Ukraine for Transport Safety.

Transportation license obtainment service procedure may be changed to a more suitable one at your request.
