The General Directorate of Taxes and the General Directorate of Road Transport Services have issued warnings regarding the rise in driving license prices, and the Competition Authority has opened an investigation in response to public concerns.
The General Directorate of Taxes and the General Directorate of Road Transport Services, along with representatives of driving schools, have agreed to a minimum fiscal cost for driver training, which is being verified by the Competition Authority.
According to the Authority, the law forbids any agreements that have as their object or effect the obstruction, limitation, or distortion of the market, so the agreement is being scrutinized to protect competition.
In order to assess potential restrictions on competition in the relevant market, the Competition Authority has asked the General Directorate of Taxes and the General Directorate of Road Transport Services for information.
Blendi Gonxhja, Director of the General Directorate of Road Transport Services, was invited to “Our Day” on A2CNN to discuss the topic of driving license price increases. He claimed that with this decision, an end is finally being put to all the abuses committed over the years by driving schools, which offered this service at “ridiculous” prices.
This, said Gonxhja, will put an end to the invasion and frightening fiction created, where many clients have become parties to abusers to obtain a driving license at a lower price, without receiving the necessary service.
