What documents do you need to drive a tiller on public roads (VIDEO)

Do you already have or are you going to buy a tiller and you don’t know what documents you need to drive such a vehicle on public roads? When we talk about driving a car or motorcycle things are pretty clear to everyone, but the situation can be quite confusing for a vehicle that does not fall into the category of classic cars.

Tavi Perțea, professional policeman, tells in one of his clips posted on the platform YouTube an incident that has a motor cultivator in the foreground. He explains how he was once put in the situation of “pulling on the right” of a tiller. More or less surprisingly, its driver shrugged his shoulders when asked for his documents at the control!

First of all, it should be known that starting from 2020, certain clear provisions have been introduced that regulate the movement of tillers on public roads. Article 12 of GEO 195 of 2002 establishes first of all the categories of vehicles that do not need to be registered or registered to drive on public roads, namely “vehicles pulled or pushed by hand, bicycles and electric scooters”.

The tiller cannot be registered

Onward, Alin. 4 provides that “it is forbidden to drive on public roads vehicles other than those that must be registered or registered, vehicles pulled or pushed by hand, bicycles and electric scooters”. We understand, therefore, that tillers cannot travel on public roads as long as they are not registered or registered.

However, the problem arises when it comes to this registration or registration, because a vehicle that is not homologated and intended for travel on public roads or for the transport of goods and merchandise cannot be registered. Regardless of the type of tiller, it is not intended to be driven on public roads.

What penalty do you risk when you drive a tiller on public roads

Under these conditions, Tavi Perțea says as clearly as possible that if you are caught driving such a vehicle on public roads you will be fined 870 lei, according to Art. 101, Section 20 of the Code Rutier, who says that “the driving on public roads of vehicles other than those that must be registered or registered, vehicles pulled or pushed by hand, bicycles and electric scooters is sanctioned”.

Many confusions on this topic arise because these provisions only entered into force in 2020. Prior to these provisions, driving a tiller on public roads could not be sanctioned in any way.
