Backlog for new vehicles license plates could be addressed by 2024 -LTO

QUEZON CITY, (PIA) – Land Transportation Office (LTO) Chief Assistant Secretary Atty. Vigor Mendoza II Mendoza expressed confidence that all the backlogs would be addressed by next year as well as the daily consumption rate for license plates for new vehicles and those needing plate replacements.

This, as the LTO ordered 15 million pieces of metal plates that are used in the production of license plates for both motor vehicles and motorcycles as part of the measures to address the backlog in the soonest possible time.

The LTO Chief said the order, which was initiated by the Department of Transportation under the leadership of Secretary Jaime Bautista, will cover the current 13.2 million backlog for motorcycles and around 179,000 for motor vehicles.

“We already ordered 15 million license plates and the delivery has already started. With this, we expect to address the backlog for both motor vehicles and motorcycles on a monthly basis,” said Mendoza.

The LTO Chief, however, appealed to the public for understanding, saying the volume of the backlog, especially for motorcycles, requires more time to address the issue.

But he gave assurance that all the backlogs, including the registration of new motor vehicles and motorcycles in the coming months, will all be addressed by next year.

“Humahabol na tayo kase bumibilis na po ‘yung delivery ng plates ‘no to the tune of 250,000 pairs every month for the motor vehicle and 1 million every month for the motorcycle. So this is speeding up already,” Mendoza said during the budget hearing at the House of Representatives.

“Even our production capacity is also increasing at 32,000 per day or around 700,000 per month,” he added. (lto/pia-ncr)
