Drivers in Minas Gerais can now notify a real offender via the CDT App. Find out how to transfer fines
The official Digital Traffic Card (CDT) application now offers something new for drivers in Minas Gerais: the online transfer of fines to the real offender. This feature, already present in six other states, allows the owner of a vehicle registered in Minas Gerais to indicate, through the CDT application, who was driving the vehicle at the time of the infraction, meaning it makes it possible to transfer fines online.

The official name of the service is the Infringing Driver Identification Form (FICI), which required completion and personal delivery to a Detran-MG or partner agency. But now it will be easier!
The National Traffic Secretariat (Senatran) highlights that the intention is to expand this tool to all states and municipalities in Brazil through the CDT, which seeks to offer essential services to citizens. To date, the Federal District, Rio Grande do Sul, Rio de Janeiro, Espírito Santo, Mato Grosso do Sul and Alagoas already have this functionality.

How to transfer the fine online:
- The vehicle owner must access the CDT and indicate the name and CPF of the driver at the time of the infraction.
- The deadline for this indication is 30 days from the date of notification of the infraction.
- The person indicated cannot be registered as “deceased”.
- The real driver will receive a communication and will need to confirm his responsibility for the infraction.
- After this confirmation, the real driver is responsible for paying the costs of the fine and the points on the National Driving License (CNH) resulting from the penalty.
- The process can be carried out completely online, without the need to attend physical units of the transit agencies.
- This service is only available to individuals, and both the vehicle owner and the designated driver must have a digital driver’s license, as well as an account on the gold or silver level government service portal.
The CDT app already offers several services to make users’ lives easier, such as the Electronic Notification System, which allows fines to be paid in advance with a discount of up to 40%. Furthermore, new services are in the process of being implemented, such as issuing vehicle transfer authorizations electronically and issuing parking passes for people over 60 years of age.
The tool that allows online indication of the real driver was developed by Serpro, a Federal Government information technology company. This functionality is a major milestone in the country’s digital transformation and inclusion strategy, simplifying access to the real offender referral service in a safe and convenient way.
