Remember the license-plate-making machine we featured a couple of months back? Well, according to the Department of Transportation (DOTr), the ‘IDeROBOT’ has produced over 1.7 million plates since it began its operations.

The agency went live via Facebook earlier this afternoon to feature the Land Transportation Offices (LTO) plate-making facility in full swing. LTO chief Edgar Galvante said that currently, the focus of production is still on license plates of four-wheeled vehicles.

Galvante added that license plates should already be available for vehicles registered from July 2016 to April 2019, and that car owners may verify the availability of their vehicle’s plates via the LTO’s online services portal. You can view the agencys full live feature below:

Galvante also mentioned the agencys plan of buying a second IDeROBOT to assist in producing more plates in light of the impending doble plaka’ law. With millions of motorcycles—both registered and unregistered—being used in the country, an additional machine that produces 700 plates per hour will cope with the expected increase in the number of license plates for printing.

In a separate Facebook post, the DOTr also featured secretary Arthur Tugade commending an LTO employee—a person with disability aged 36—who had recently passed the Civil Service Exam. You can check out the feel-good story below:
