Civil liability is mandatory for all drivers who own and drive a motor vehicle registered in Bulgaria.
What determines the amount of the fine
The amount of the fines, if the obligatory Civil Liability Insurance has not been concluded, are regulated in Art. 638 of the Insurance Code:
Do we pay more in case of repeated violation
In case a natural person has already been sanctioned once, but is caught again in the same violation - there is no Civil Liability Insurance, he is obliged to pay the amount of eight hundred levs. If the person is legal - four thousand levs. In case of repeated violation of a driver who drives a foreign vehicle - eight hundred levs.
Do they fine us if we don't have a sticker?
When concluding Civil Liability Insurance, the insurer or the insurance intermediary must provide you with:
The driver is obliged to stick a valid sticker, in the lower left corner, on the windshield. If this is not possible, due to the lack of such, in the case of motorcycles / mopeds, the sticker shall be affixed to the insurance policy. Failure to comply with this condition shall be punishable by a fine of BGN 50. The same is the fine that must be paid if a valid control voucher is not provided.
