Earlier this month, the Land Transportation Office (LTO) announced that they will be giving a 60-day extension on expired licenses and vehicle registrations as now officers were operating during the lockdown. With the National Capital Region (NCR) easing into General Community Quarantine (GCQ) on June 1, that means holders of expired licenses and vehicle registrations here in NCR have until July 31 to have them renewed.
“The validity of registration of motor vehicles expiring from March 1, 2020, until the date of work resumption shall be shall be automatically extended for sixty (60) calendar days from such work resumption," the agency's announcement said.
That being said, anyone whose vehicle registration or driver's license had expired during the quarantine period in NCR will be automatically given a 2-month extension without accruing any penalties.
The LTO has also advised those concerned to make an online appointment by visiting their official website at https://www.lto.net.ph/LTO/Online. The LTO will only accept walk-in renewals starting on June 8, 2020.
Upon resumption of LTO functions under the “new normal” guidelines, social distancing measures shall be observed when transacting inside LTO offices. Only a handful of people will be allowed entry at a given time. Wearing of face masks is mandatory.
