Ever since the pandemic hit the country, vehicle registrations have been a problem for many motorists. Some get up at 3 a.m. just to get in line and finish early. The strict implementation of social distancing in emission test centers is the primary reason for this inconvenience.
That is why the Land Transportation Office (LTO) has extended the validity of vehicle registrations yet again as an effort to reduce further spread of the COVID-19. LTO has been extending the validity and the period of renewal of registration since March.
The agency decided to extend the vehicle registration validity once again to ensure orderly processing of transactions and to strictly implement the observance of social distancing. As such, motor vehicles with plate numbers ending in 6, 7, and 8 are given a registration validity extension until October 30, 2020. On the other hand, vehicles with plate numbers ending in 9 and 0 are given an extension until December 31, 2020.
Motor Vehicle Registration Extension:
- Plate ending in 6 – from June now adjusted to October 30, 2020
- Plate ending in 7 – from July now adjusted to October 30, 2020
- Plate ending in 8 – from August now adjusted to October 30, 2020
- Plate ending in 9 – from September now adjusted to December 31, 2020
- Plate ending in 0 – from October now adjusted to December 31, 2020
Again, the agency ensured that no penalties and surcharge shall be collected for renewal transactions within the revised schedules. Asec. Edgar Galvante said that motorists should follow the revised schedule and not wait for the deadline in order to help everyone effectively carry out smooth transactions.
Process your vehicle registrations ASAP to avoid hassles
“Aside from considering the financial health of motorists, we have crafted this schedule so that we can create a systematic and organized process of renewal of motor vehicle registration in all our offices. This is also to ensure that the clients’ and our employees’ welfare are well-protected at all cost,” Asec. Galvante added.
