Recently, the Land Transportation Office (LTO) advised that all of its offices located in Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ) areas are closed in the meantime. So for those who live in Metro Manila, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, and Rizal, now may not be a good time to renew your licence or vehicle registration.
Then again, LTO already extended the validity of vehicle registrations. With 6, 7, and 8 previously having separate deadlines, all plates ending with the said numbers are now valid until September 30, 2020. The following revisions were recently applied by LTO, given the congestion being experienced in its offices. As for vehicles that have plates ending in 9 and 0, validity remains the same which is still until October 31 and November 30, 2020.
Going further, the reason why the following offices were closed down for the meantime it's because LTO can only operate on areas under General Community Quarantine (GCQ), given that these areas are considered as low-risk or medium-risk areas during this COVID-19 pandemic. This tactic should also help them better manage or rather clear the ongoing congestion on some of its offices, which therefore complies with the current safety standards of the government during this stricter Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ).
Offices of the Land Transportation Office (LTO) will remain closed in the next 14 days, so for those who wish to consult their offices for license or registration renewal, you’re going to have to wait for the meantime.
Despite the pending enclosure of several LTO offices, the overall circumstance still somewhat remains positive as enlightened by the prior extension of the validity of vehicle registrations. Given such consideration by the government office, we are therefore insisted just to stay home unless you need to go out and acquire basic goods.
