Rent a motorcycle and moped in Vietnam: divorce in Vietnamese

Russian tourists going on vacation to Vietnam should be aware of the illegality of renting a motor vehicle with an engine capacity of more than 49 CC, as well as the financial and legal consequences in case of participation in an accident or detention by the Vietnamese police.

According to the Russian Embassy in Vietnam, the number of accidents involving Russian tourists renting scooters and motorcycles from the local population has increased significantly in recent years. Last year, in 2012, three Russians were killed in an accident in this country, and in April this year, a Vietnamese citizen was killed in an accident caused by a Russian.

The problem is that international driving documents in Vietnam are not valid, so you need to get a local Vietnamese license, which takes quite a long time.

Therefore, almost all Russians who drive motorcycles and mopeds ride them without the necessary documents.

Also, according to Vietnamese law, any traffic accident involving foreigners who do not have a local driver’s license is initially interpreted in their favor. As a result, the tourist faces administrative punishment, which involves the payment or payment of inflated compensation to the “injured” party and the owners of vehicles.

And if a local citizen is killed in an accident involving a foreign tourist, the case may end in a real prison sentence.

And in most cases, Vietnamese individuals and organizations that rent motor vehicles to foreigners usually do not draw up any official contracts, deliberately going to violate local laws. And in the event of an accident, they remain virtually unpunished.

Whether such a risky rental of a motorcycle and moped in Vietnam is necessary, of course, only You can decide.
