MANILA, Philippines – The Land Transportation Office (LTO) is set to distribute in March 2018 its backlog of more than 3-million licensed plates.

However, the LTO clarified it will not cover motorists who applied for vehicle registration from the period of 2013 to 2016.

In an interview on the ‘Program Get it Straight with Daniel Razon’, LTO Chief Assistant Secretary Edgar Galvante said the agency will issue license plates to motorists who applied for vehicle registration from July 2016 to December 2017.

The new plates will come from LTO’s new supplier.

Host, Daniel Razon asked if this means, if you bought your vehicle before July 2016 or applying for a renewal, you shouldn’t expect to receive your license plate until the problem with the Supreme Court and COA has been resolved.

Galvante said, ” That’s correct. What will be issued to them are just validation stickers. They can use their old license plates, but the validation stickers will serve as proof that their registration has been updated.”

Meanwhile, other motorists are left with no other choice but to use validation stickers while the  LTO is resolving the problem on the matter.

According to Galvante, Filipino-Dutch company JKG-PPI, the previous license plates supplier of the government, failed to submit necessary documents required by the Commission on Audit (COA).

Galvante said, not until the Supreme Court decides on COA’s petition and notice of disallowance against JKG-PPI, will the agency be able to resolve the problem with the license plates.

“So the problem really lies with the contractor?” Razon asked.

Galvante replied, “In the first place, COA disallowed it because they lack sufficient documents. There are requirements needed from them, but they failed to comply. That’s why the payment due them was held.”

Aside from the issuance of car plates, the new contract also covers LTO’s purchase of new apparatus for the production of license plates in the country. — Joan Nano | UNTV News & Rescue

Traditional jeepney drivers na pumapasada nang walang QR code, huhulihin – LTO

Robie de Guzman   •   July 6, 2020

MANILA, Philippines – Nagbabala ang mga kawani ng Land Transportation Office (LTO) na huhulihin nila ang traditional jeepney drivers na pumapasada nang walang naka-paskil na QR code.

Ang QR code ay patunay na kabilang ang isang jeepney unit sa mga pinayagan nang magbalik-operasyon sa gitna ng community quarantine.

Ibinibigay ito sa jeepney driver kung kasama sila sa listahan ng mga operator at driver na pinahintulutang magbalik-pasada. Makikita ang listahang ito sa website at social media account ng Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB).

“Tini–check namin y’ong QR code na ‘yan ng LTFRB. Na-download na nila, so, ‘yan, naka-display na ngayon sa jeep. Plus y’ong protocol natin: social distancing, thermal, face mask,” ani Retired Col. Rolando Abelardo, ang team leader ng LTO mobile 102 Central Office.

Samantala, limang pampasaherong jeep ang hinuli sa operasyon ng Inter-Agency Council for Traffic (IACT) ngayong araw sa Malabon City dahil sa sirang gulong at tail light.

“Basta nag-comply lang siguro sila na makakuha ng QR code and then y’ong sasakyan naman hindi naman nila chineck,” ani Col. Rosenso Borja ng IACT Team Barracuda.

Kaya paalala ng mga otoridad sa mga tsuper ng jeep na tiyaking nasa maayos na kondisyon ang kanilang mga sasakyan bago bumiyahe upang makaiwas sa disgrasya. – RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Asher Cadapan Jr.)

Ang lecture ay maaaring isagawa sa tanggapan ng LTO o sa accredited driving schools na nakalista sa website ng ahensiya.

Muli namang nagpa-alala ang ahensiya sa publiko na huwag makipag-transaksiyon sa mga tinatawag na ‘fixers’ o sa mga hindi otorisadong indibidwal kaugnay ng pagkuha ng lisensiya. – RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Asher Cadapan Jr.)
