Still waiting for your vehicle's license plates to be delivered? Fret not as the Land Transportation Office (LTO) is busy to have those backlogged plates delivered to their owners. In fact, the LTO said that they have almost completed the delivery of the pending plates.
According to LTO Secretary Edgar Galvante, the delivery of about 775,000 licensee plates to new vehicle owners that registered from July 2016 up to December 2017 are almost complete. The agency is nearly done distributing the plates to their dealers and are also working with district offices in order to complete it.
The plates are being produced through a contract was won by a joint venture of Trojan Computer Forms Manufacturing Corporation and JH Tonnjes E.A.S.T. GmbH.
Apart from the planned completion of delivery of the pending plates, the LTO added that there will be no more region designations on the new license plates. Instead, each plate's region will be indicated by the first letter. For example, if the license plate is registered at NCR, the plate will begin with the letter 'N'. As an additional safety feature, each plate will have an assigned third plate sticker with RFID technology that will ensure that the new plates are legitimately assigned to the vehicle.
Galvante said vehicle owners can check for their plates using the LTO's online facility by inputting their 15-digit MV file number when they access: https://www.lto.net.ph/ltomvinquiryui.
