It seems that the IDeROBOT that the Land Transportation Office (LTO) acquired earlier this year is doing a pretty good job of addressing the agency’s license plate backlog—at least that’s what the numbers tell us.
In a recent social media post, the LTO provided its latest status update on total motor vehicle plate production. As it stands, the agency claims that 94% of vehicles registered between July to December 2016 have already received their respective license plates. It also says that it has addressed a huge chunk of its backlog for 2017 and 2018 as well.
Following the agency’s recent claims that 1.7 million plates have been produced since the license-plate-producing machine began operations, these numbers provide at least a more concrete idea of how much of the backlogs were really addressed. For an even clearer picture as well as other details, you can check out the official Facebook post here:
Do take note, however, that for whatever reason, plates of vehicles that were registered prior to July 2016 are still in production. There is also an indication that the production of motorcycle plates has been put on hold due to the ongoing discussions relating to Republic Act No. 11235 or the Motorcycle Crime Prevention Act.
If you’ve only recently bought a new vehicle yourself—either a car or a motorcycle—have you received your plates yet? Tell us in the comments.
