Motorcycle registration renewal

LTO Vehicle Registration and Renewal Process

All vehicles (brand new or second hand) should be registered in a Land Transportation Office (LTO) to make the ownership valid. This is what you call ‘vehicle registration.”’ Since this is a legal process, documentations are needed to prove the ownership of the vehicle. Aside from the papers that need to be submitted, there will definitely be fees to be paid as well before getting your vehicle registration.

Documents needed for registration

Below are the documents that you should prepare before you go to an LTO regional branch. These documents are obtained when you buy any brand new or used car from a car dealership company.

  • Original copies of registration certificate (CR) – when renewing
  • Latest official receipt from the dealer (OR)
  • Purchased compulsory third party liability (CTPL) insurance

Bear in mind that the required CPTL of LTO is at least Php950.00. If you are not sure that the OR-CR of the second hand car you bought is genuine, you can have it authenticated at the LTO Property Section, East Avenue, Quezon City. By doing this, you will be assured before paying any registration fees and will have the confidence to do the registration too.

Schedule based on plate number

If you are doing the initial registration or renewal of registration, then you should get familiar with the schedule of LTO based on the digits on your plate number. In the event that you bought the vehicle in a second hand motor dealership, you’ll have to retain and continue using the designated plate on it. Just like any other government issued identification number (SSS, Pag-ibig, PhilHealth), plate numbers are unchangeable. This rule is indicated in the amendments of Batas Pambansa Blg. 43: An Act Providing Number Plates to Owners of Motor Vehicles and Trailers.

See the table below to know when is the right date to go for your car registration.

To set an example, if your plate number is AJN078, you need to register your vehicle on August between the dates of 15 – 21.

Emission test

Before you go to your scheduled date, your vehicle should undergo an emission test first. You should go to the head of the emission testing center to pay for the emission testing fee, which is around Php410.00. The test usually lasts for an hour or an hour and a half. It often include stencil procedure on your car’s engine, which is sometimes free. The test usually includes a stencil (which is sometimes free) which is one of the renewal and registration requirements in LTO.

If you plan to register or renew in a different regional branch, do expect an additional fee of Php100.00 for the change of location.After doing all the legal procedures above, your vehicle is now registered and is good to hit the road again.
