The Land Transportation Office (LTO) said that renewal of motor vehicle registration can now be done online.

LTO chief Jose Arturo Tugade announced in a Facebook post that motorists may now utilize the agency’s Land Transportation Management System (LTMS) to avoid long lines and follow the registration renewal which can be done in less than ten minutes.

If a motorist’s vehicle and registration details are inputted in the LTMS, they can now use the online portal to renew their registration. However, those without records must create an account at the online portal and must visit any LTO district office for further assistance. 

The LTO chief also advised owners to secure a certificate of coverage and make sure that their vehicles have been inspected by a Private Motor Vehicle Inspection Center (PMVIC) before using the online portal.

“Both the validated insurance and the motor vehicle inspection report (MVIR) will be electronically sent to the LTMS,” said Tugade.

“If your plate number ends with 3, you have the whole month to get your choice of insurance coverage, have your vehicle inspected in any PMVIC near you, and access the LTMS portal for the online renewal. There’s no need for vehicle owners to spend a whole day renewing the registration of their vehicles,” he added.
