Is your car’s registration nearing its expiration? Well, worry not, because the Land Transportation Office (LTO) has just announced it will be extending its validity periods and deadlines for registration once again.
In a Facebook post, the LTO broke down every memorandum circular (MC) it has issued so far pertaining to the validity of motor vehicle registration. This includes a May 9 MC extending the validity or vehicle registrations that expired on March 1, as well as a June 24 MC extending the validity for vehicles scheduled for renewal from June to October.
On top of that, registration for vehicles with plate numbers ending in 6 and those outside the National Capital Region (NCR), Laguna, Cebu, and Region III scheduled for renewal in June now have until July 31 to do so. Vehicles ending in 6 within NCR, Laguna, Cebu, and Region III, meanwhile, can renew their registration up until September 3, 2020.
For plate numbers ending in 7, 8, 9 and 0, the new deadlines for renewal are the following:
- Plate numbers ending in 7 – July 31 deadline extended to August 31
- Plate numbers ending in 8 – August deadline extended to September 30
- Plate numbers ending in 9 – September 30 deadline extended to October 31
- Plate numbers ending in 0 – October 31 deadline extended to November 30
The LTO says no penalties and charges will be applied for transactions under the agency’s revised registration renewal schedule.
“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,” LTO assistant secretary Edgar Galvante said in a statement.
“This is also to ensure that the clients’ and our employees’ welfare are well-protected at all cost,” Galvante added.
That’s a relief. The last place anyone wants to be right now is in line somewhere to get their papers in order. Thanks, LTO.
