LTO extends registration validity of vehicles with plates ending in 2

The Land Transportation Office (LTO) has again extended the validity of vehicle registrations due for the month of February (2).

According to the latest LTO memo, vehicle owners with a plate number ending in 2 – designated for the month of February – will have until March 31, 2022, to have their registration renewed.

Consequently, the second to the last digit of your vehicle’s plate number will dictate which week you should be renewing your vehicle’s registration to avoid any penalties or late charges.

For vehicles with second to the last digits of 1, 2 and 3, you have until the first week of March to renew your vehicle’s registration. For vehicles with second to the last digits of 4, 5 and 6, you must renew your vehicle’s registration within the 2nd week of March.

For those with second to the last digits of 7 & 8, as well as 9 & 0, you have until the 3rd and 4th week, respectively.

Not the first time

This is not the first time that the LTO has extended the validity of registrations, as well as licenses due to the challenges brought about by the ongoing pandemic.

In 2021, for example, vehicle registrations, as well as student permits, driver’s and conductor’s licenses were all extended with varying degrees throughout the year.

LTMS

Thanks to technology, drivers can now schedule their visit to the LTO through the Land Transportation Management System or LTMS.

It is a powerful tool for our clients to use as they need it and wherever it is convenient.”

The CDE is a requirement that drivers need to complete before renewing their privilege to drive a motor vehicle.
