Ten-year old cars to enter DR

The Chamber of Deputies has approved a legislative proposal that seeks to extend the limit on the age of vehicles imported into the country to 10 years. The proposal, declared to be urgent and approved after two readings, was introduced by Deputy Jose Altagracia Gonzalez Sanchez, and will modify Law 21-01. It now goes to the Senate for approval. The current limit on the age of vehicles coming into the country is five years. Some four months ago the Association of Used Car Importers argued for this ten-year limit on the age of vehicles as a way of increasing revenue and providing a broader section of the population with the option of acquiring a vehicle.
