Mongolia introduced a Traffic Penalty Point System on 1 February 2016. Drivers start with 10 points that may be deducted if they commit traffic violations. In addition to the violation point system, fines are to be imposed depending on level of violation.

When all 10 points are deducted, the driver is no longer allowed to drive. The driver must attend in driving course and pass a driving exam in order to again be awarded 10 points.

Mongolia has adopted the point system aiming to prevent traffic accidents and violations, reduce the amount of vehicle damage, improve drivers' responsibility and levels of courtesy.

Obviously, if you comply with the law and do not violate the regulations, you will keep your 10 points.

Please see following list which sets out how many points are deducted for what kind of incident:
