LTO Opened Drive thru Registration Centers in Bicol Region

Vehicle registration renewal is now available at the LTO's new drive-thru facilities, which are now available in the Bicol region. Drive-thru car registration has been made available by the Land Transportation Office (LTO) Bicol at many localities in the Bicol area, including Sorsogon, Pamplona in Camsur, and Daet.


Camarines Sur was one of the first places in the Philippines to have drive-thru registration. As of this writing, there are now three (3) drive-thru facilities in Bicol: the LTO-Pili extension office in Cadlan, Pili, Camarines Sur; the LTO Pamplona Drive-Thru Motor Vehicle (MV) Registration Facility in Pamplona, Camarines Sur; and the LTO in Cabid-an, Sorsogon City.


According to LTO, its purpose is to eliminate the need for people to wait in line when registering their automobiles, thereby reducing wait times. This will also allow people who live in the house and lot in the Philippines away from Metro Manila to get efficient service in renewing their driver's license.



Why the First Drive-thru Facility was launched by the Land Transportation Office?

Vehicle registration renewal with the Land Transportation Office (LTO) became a significant burden for the millions of motorists in the nation due to the enormous backlogs and service outages brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. There has been news that many drivers had to wait in long lines starting at the crack of dawn or even earlier in order to renew their car registration.


Due to this trouble brought on by the pandemic, the LTO thought to launch its first-ever drive-thru center in the Philippines last 2020.


The Land Transportation Office Central Visayas (LTO-7) revealed that between July 6 and August 11, 2020, they were able to process 2, 412 automobiles during the pilot testing of the LTO's new "drive-thru" registration renewal procedure. This spurs a glimmer of hope for motorists during the trying times of the strict lockdown period.


Around 1, 113 cars and 1, 299 motorbikes had their registrations renewed at the time at the LTO-7's Motor Vehicle Inspection Center (MVIC) in Subangdaku, Mandaue City. This is the first service of its sort in the Visayas area, and it was said that the idea originated in Davao City.



LTO Drive-thru Vehicle Registration Renewal Process

All privately owned vehicles, whether four- or two-wheeled, are welcome to use the drive-thru. The LTO has made it clear that the drive-thru service is solely for simple procedures like renewing car registrations of vehicle owners and cannot be used for any other purposes.


This implies that other miscellaneous transactions, such as changing the vehicle's classification, body style, or color, canceling a mortgage, or transferring ownership, cannot be handled at the drive-thru since they need the issue of a new CR owing to the adjustment of records. Consequently, only the district office will handle applications involving a wide variety of different types of transactions.


Steps in Registration Renewals via MV Drive-thru Services

Drive-through renewals may take as little as three minutes, whereas the average time it takes to process a motor vehicle at the Private Motor Vehicle Inspection Center (PMVIC) is between 12 to 17 minutes.


In addition, the MV Drive-thru service just requires three (3) simple steps from the motorists:


Step 1. Drive your motor vehicles on over to the PMVIC for an inspection.

Step 2. Once the vehicle has passed inspection at the PMVIC, the driver may continue through the drive-thru and drop off the documents at the Registration Facility Window 1, where an assessor will give them a quick check.

In order to take advantage of this dependable and effective service, motorists must bring in the following documents:

- a legible copy of their registration certificate and official receipt

- proof of insurance certificate

- the results of an emission test result, and

- stencils of the vehicle's chassis and engine numbers.

Step 3. Window 2 is the last stop, wherein payment is handed over to the cashier.



Benefits of Drive-Thru Motor Vehicle Registration

The registration of a vehicle is evidence that the owner has fulfilled all obligations related to that vehicle's registration, including the payment of all applicable taxes and fees. Assuming you have a valid driver's license and submit the necessary paperwork, you shouldn't have any trouble getting on and off the highway in your vehicle to try the Philippines traditional food or be on a hassle when traveling to the best place to go in Christmas Philippines.


The operation of a motor vehicle that has not been properly registered is illegal in and of itself but is extremely serious when committed in conjunction with its use.


When a police officer performs a vehicle check and discovers that the vehicle is not registered, the vehicle will be confiscated, and the driver will face charges for operating an unregistered vehicle.


If the vehicle's registration has lapsed and it has not been renewed, the last year of registration will be shown on the plate. As such, if you are a law-abiding person and a responsible automobile owner, you shouldn't have any trouble with car registration or renewal.


With this new system and innovative approach, busy motorists don't even have to get out of their cars to obtain the help they need, similar to how drive-through windows at fast food restaurants in the Philippines best food work.
