Deadline extended

The Land Transportation Office (LTO) has again issued a memorandum extending the validity of vehicle registrations, student permits (SP), driver’s licenses (DL) and conductor’s licenses (CL).

The scope of this memo are those with vehicle registrations, SPs, DLs, and CLs that will expire during the month of August. This is after the National Capital Region (NCR) was placed under the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) on August 6, 2021. It is not yet clear as of this writing if the ECQ will be extended beyond August 20, 2021.

For those with expiring SPs, DLs, and CLs within the month of August, the validity has been effectively extended until November 30, 2021, while the validity of vehicle registrations with plate number or MV File number that ends in 8 and 9, are extended to October 31, 2021 and November 30, 2021, respectively.

The validity of medical certificates for SPs, DLs and CLs are also extended up to November 30, 2021.

E.D. Vera Cruz confirmed that the validity of these results – which acts as a prerequisite to the renewal of a vehicle’s registration – will also be extended due to the lockdown.

“When it [result] falls during a lockdown period, it is automatically extended,” told Vera Cruz to
