Here in the Philippines, we have different procedures and processes in renewing different classifications of vehicles. This is done through the Land Transportation Office (LTO) which is the organization responsible for the movement of units involved in land transport.

In this article, we will be detailing the requirements and processes on how one can renew the registration of a certain vehicle. Moreover, the different classifications of registrations as well.

What are the different classifications of motor vehicles in the country?

Although we know that cars, motorcycles, and other public utility vehicles differ in terms of registration, let me break down the different types of classifications of these motor vehicles.

  • Private
  • Government
  • “For Hire”
  • Diplomatic
  • “Other Exempt Motor Vehicles” (OEV)
  • Stolen and Recovered Motor Vehicle

Private and Government

Requirements

  • Photocopy of Certificate of Registration (CR) and Official Receipt of payment (OR)
  • Duly accomplished and approved Motor Vehicle Inspection Report (MVIR)
  • Appropriate Insurance Certificate of Cover (COC)
  • Certificate of Emission Compliance (CEC)
  • Taxpayer’s Identification Number (TIN)

Procedure:

1. First thing is of course preparation of all the documents. Do not proceed to a specific Land Transportation Office without ensuring that all of these documents are readily available with you.

2.  When in an LTO office, proceed to the transaction counters and submit all the documents to the Evaluator. This is for them to evaluate the documentation you’ve compiled and for them to compute all necessary fees.

3. There will be an actual inspection of motor vehicles together with the duly accomplished MVIR.

4. Afterwards, proceed to the Cashier when your name is called for the necessary fees; this is when you’ll obtain an Official Receipt (OR).

5. Lastly, proceed to the Releasing Counter when your name is called to obtain the Certificate of Registration (CR), plates, stickers, and other requested documents.

Now that is the process on how you can renew the motor registration vehicle of all types here in the Philippines. As you can see, the process is not that difficult; all you need to do is to invest time and effort in going to the district offices for thousands of people come to renew every single day.

Other tips:

1. NEVER try to approach a fixer. Since Duterte’s term, our dear President do not patronize these fixers or people who can help shorten the process. This might lead to you not being able to get your registration on time or not get it at all.

2. Be as early as you can. If you have an appointment, be sure to be at the office at least 30 minutes before the schedule.

3. Sometimes, some district offices have limited supplies so the outputs might not be given to you right after the process.

4. There is no other organization aside from the LTO who can renew your vehicle registration.
