A Memorandum from the office of Assistant Secretary Edgar Galvante of the Land Transportation Office (LTO) was issued on July 1, 2020 instructing all Regional Directors, all Asiistant Regional Directors and all concermed officials and employees.

“In view of the non availability of license plates and decals compounded by the continuing health crisis brought about by the COVID 19 Pandemic, neccesisating the imposition of quatantine measures throughout the country resulting in limited operational capacity of pur offices, the previous instruction, to defer until further notice, the implementation of the IRR’s “plate provisions” or those which relate to the requirement of motorcycles to have number plates at the front and rear, is hereby formalized”

” Further, it is also directed that the periods in the IRR for the mandatory updating of records, specifically: 1. the reporting of sale or disposition by the owner of a motorcycle to the LTO within three (3) days upon such sale or disposition; and 2. the registration by the new owner of the motorcycle within five (5) days from aquisition of ownership shall be extended for a period of sixty (60) days from this issuance, to allownthe owners ample time to process their transactions while observing the social distancing health and sanitary protocols.”

This is indeed good news for all. But we are concerned if the 60 days extension is enough to process all the registrations, since aside from the LTO office, there is now a big back log and delay in the Emission Testing Centers as well.
