Executive Summary

This March 30, 2015, the Land Transportation Office (LTO) issued Memorandum
Circular No. AVT-2015-1930 enforcing a policy on “no registration, no travel” of four-
wheeled vehicles, which stipulates the revised schedule of fines and penalties for
violations of laws, rules and regulations governing land transportation. The owner of the
unregistered vehicle will be fined P10,000.00. The driver of the same vehicle will be
charged a separate P1,000.00. If the car owner or driver will be able to present proof
that the vehicle is duly registered, i.e., Current Official Receipt (OR), and Certificate of
Registration (CR), or its photocopy, a P5,000-fine will be charged for failure to attach
the authorized motor vehicle license plates (see Section II of the Joint Administrative
Order No. 2014-01). However, fines and penalties are not applicable for motor vehicles
purchased in the past seven days. The timeframe supposedly reflects the improved
processing time upon implementation of the Administrative Order No. AVT-2014-24.If a
motor vehicle has been unregistered for more than 37 days, it will be impounded and
released only upon registration and payment of appropriate fines and penalties.

However, it received protests from new motor vehicle owners, dealers as well as
from the MMDA chair himself who even called the policy “unconstitutional and un-
Christian." What critics of the new LTO policy point out is that the LTO processing time
actually takes much more than 7 days to get a new plate. LTO claims that processing
has been “typically” reduced to seven days, but this summary measure is a mere
average, i.e., it does not account for the variation in processing times that new car
owners face if they decide to register the vehicles on their own. In many discussion
groups in social media, we noticed that hardly anyone has gotten their plates in seven
days as claimed by LTO. New cars, when released to the buyer, are typically registered
a few days after they are released, since dealers have been registering vehicles in bulk,
and also have their own “internal” processing of papers (i.e. preparation of manager’s
checks to LTO) before documents are submitted to the LTO. Delays in the issuance of
license plates by the LTO have always been cited for non-compliance with the rule. Car
dealers have suggested that insufficient manpower in the LTO unnecessarily slows
down the process of issuing available plates. Various groups have called for a
moratorium of the LTO policy considering the above glitches in the existing system.
I. Time Context:
 March 30, 2015

II. Viewpoint:
 LTO Chairperson issued a Memorandum Circular No. AVT-2015-1930
enforcing a policy on “no registration, no travel” of four-wheeled vehicles,
which stipulates the revised schedule of fines and penalties for violations
of laws, rules and regulations governing land transportation.

III. Statement of the problem:

Nowadays, LTO is having a problem issuing a license plate. Because of this,
many are complaining about the days given by the office to get their plates wherein it
takes a long time to get their plates. The LTO issued a memorandum stating “no
registration, no travel”. As a result many are protesting that the new policy is
unconstitutional and un-Christian.

IV. Objectives
 To make the registration process faster and the issuance of OR/CR
will finish within seven days.
 To have a collaborative effort with the Authority.
 To have a professional and well experienced employee in the field.
 Processes should be standardized.
 LTO should be in close contact to MMDA.
 Addition of personal and equipment needed.
V. Area of Consideration (S.W.O.T)

 LTO had already released licensed plates to car dealers.

 The agency released a list showing transactions which indicated
the license plates and the date of release to car dealers.
 The car dealer should also be held responsible.
 LTO claim that the problem is with the dealer.
 30-moratarium on the implementation of “No plate, No travel

 Delays in the issuance plates by the LTO.

 Insufficient manpower slowdown the process of issuing the
Weaknesses  LTO policy fines the drivers/owners of the unregistered vehicles
even if the fault is beyond their control.
 Car/Vehicle owners are being asked to pay even if the delay in
the plates is not their responsibility.
 Various groups haves caused for a moratorium of the LTO policy
considering the above glitches to the existing system.

 The policy may remain.

 It may be considered re-implemented to solve previous problem
Opportunities plate production.
 They have already addressed the backlog of license plates,
particularly with previously issued OR’s/CR’s.

 They may receive protests from motor vehicle owners.

Threats  It may not be beneficiary to others.
 Their system and lack of manpower may still not vary in handling
everything from registration to the delivery of the plates.

VII. Recommendation
Researchers recommend ACA #1 which is “The Land Transportation
Office should focus on hiring professional employees to assess the car owners
on processing their plates, papers and other related documents”.
Through this, by hiring additional employees, the long queuing of car
owners will significantly decrease. In line with these, the flow of processing
documents from time to time will be assisted with proper and ease. The
customers can accomplish diligently every legal document they need to do
and take in LTO.

VIII. Conclusion
The researchers conclude that the best solution is to hire additional
employees in order for the customers to accomplish every legal document they
need to do and take in a little processing time.
In addition, the government should be more considerate when it comes to
registering new cars or vehicle if not registered by its dealer. And when it comes
to a car or vehicle that wasn’t registered for so long, an immediate action shall be
imposed within a reasonable time just to be fair with other car owners. Lastly,
when it comes to license plates it should be distributed with ease after the given
time so that every car or vehicle bought will have its identification in a form of
plates in compliance with the law.
