When the owner lends his vehicle to another person who commits an infraction, he usually goes through two hassles: first, the fine itself; second, the need to attend the Detran service point, together with the real offender, to transfer the points from the driver’s license. A functionality developed by Serpro for the National Traffic Secretariat (Senatran) allows this entire procedure to be done 100% online. It is the Indication of the Real Violator, which can now be done by drivers from Minas Gerais using the Detran website or the Digital Traffic Card (CDT) application.
“Our intention is that, in the near future, this tool will be available in all states and municipalities in Brazil through the CDT, which increasingly offers essential services to citizens”, highlighted the national secretary of Traffic, Adrualdo Catão.
The president of Serpro, Alexandre Amorim, considers that the adoption of functionality is “a major milestone in the country’s digital transformation and inclusion strategy. It is a modernization action carried out by the state and federal governments with a focus on making the lives of Minas Gerais citizens easier “. Amorim recalls that Minas Gerais is the Brazilian state with the largest number of municipalities and has one of the largest fleets of vehicles in the country. “The state also poses a major challenge in providing services to citizens due to its diversity and territorial breadth”, he adds.
“The functionality will allow us to simplify access to the real offender indication service for citizens who are notified of a traffic violation, in a safe way and with the convenience of resolving the demand anywhere, via the internet and cell phone. The partnership with Senatran and Serpro is aligned with the purpose of traffic management in Minas Gerais by improving the quality of services and, whenever possible, using technology, eliminating the need to travel to an in-person unit to resolve demands”, he states. Lucas Vilas Boas, head of Minas Gerais Transit.
The identification of the real offender can be made within 30 days from the date of notification of the fine. The online application saves time, in addition to contributing to the legitimacy of the fine, as the action falls on those who, in fact, committed the infraction.
The technology is also used by transit agencies in the Federal District, Rio Grande do Sul, Rio de Janeiro, Espírito Santo, Mato Grosso do Sul and Alagoas. Therefore, it is possible to nominate drivers from any of the states that have joined, as long as the infraction also occurred in those locations. To make the transfer, simply inform the person actually responsible for the fine, with your name and CPF. After this, the nominee receives a communication and, if accepted, he will assume, for that infraction only, the financial burden and the points on his National Driving License (CNH).
Online nomination is only permitted between individuals. The owner of the vehicle and the actual offender must have a digital driver’s license and the nominee must sign the acceptance electronically through the government services portal, Gov.br. To do this, the person must have a gold or silver level account. If your account is still bronze, it is possible to raise the level by performing facial validation through the Gov.br app. The indicated individual cannot be “deceased”.
The activities and competencies related to state traffic services were transferred to Seplag-MG, following the sanction of Law No. 24,313/23, by Governor Romeu Zema, in April this year. On 6/20, decree 48.636/23, published in the Official Gazette, established the organization and responsibilities of the State Traffic Management Coordination (CET), created by law and linked to the Planning Secretariat (Seplag).
According to the decree, the Coordination is the State’s executive traffic body, part of the National Traffic System, responsible for: registration and licensing of vehicles, planning, direction, standardization, coordination, control, inspection, supervision and execution of other activities and other services related to traffic and driver training.
