Bulgarian law is offers one of the most liberal procedures for obtaining cargo and passenger transport license. The authority that issues the licenses is Executive Agency "Automobile Administration". The benefits of getting a Bulgarian cargo or passenger transport license is that it is issued relatively quick (within 20 days) and almost no initial checks are done. This means that you can register a new company and get the license. Of course there are mandatory requirements which you need to meet, such as:
  • your company need to be in good financial condition. Luckily the law sets what is good condition:  your company has to show in its balance sheets possession of at least 9000 Euros if you apply for one vehicle license and +5000 Euros for every other vehicle you apply for. To be absolutely clear here is one example:
You apply for license for 3 trucks. This will be: 9000(first truck) + 2 x 5000(the rest two trucks) = 19000 euros. This is the amount that your company accounts should show that you possess. This amount can also be available through bank guarantee or borrowed from third party.
  • Your company should hire a person who has passes the state exams for qualification for transport company management. This is a special license issued upon successful passing of the state exams for transport company management. Anybody can get this qualification certificate as long as he/she is fluent in Bulgarian and learns the exam prep papers. IF a foreigners applies for such transport management qualification certificate, the high school diploma needs to be legalized in the Bulgarian Ministry of Education.
