Land Transportation Office (LTO) 7 has announced that all the applications for the new registration on sold motorcycles and motor vehicles received on or before April 30 have been released to the dealers.

The agency informed the public that the New Registration Unit and Manufacturers, Assemblers, Importers, Rebuilders, Dealers, Other Entities (MAIRDOES) have zeroed the backlog on the transactions received on and before the said date.

LTO 7 regional director Victor Emmanuel Caindec explained that if the dealer submitted the complete documents and processed the payments of the customer’s purchased motorcycle or motor vehicle before April 30, 2021, “then your Original Certificate of Registration (CR) and Official Receipt (OR) has been released and already in the dealer’s possession.”

The director also clarified that all those that were submitted to their New Registration Unit (NRU) on or before the date stated, have been released.

“Wala nay pending. Basta gi kumpleto sa dealer ang papel pag submit unya nibayad na pag human ug evaluate, humana ni nga mga transactions. Kuhaa na ninyo sa mga dealer ang inyong rehistro,” said the director.

RD Caindec also reminded the public to never accept non-original documents from their dealers even if it is under an installment basis.

“Ayaw og sugot kung dili original nga papeles ang ihatag, bisan pa og utang na, dapat original ang gi gunitan sa mga registered owners.”

As of May 10, NRU has released a total of 14,409 motorcycles and motor vehicle OR/CR for April; 15,290 for March; 12,773 for February; and 11,369 for January.

RD Caindec also announced that the regional office has been receiving plate numbers for Central Visayas from its Central Office that were registered since January 2018.

“Naa ang distribution center sa SM Seaside City Cebu sa Seaview Wing pero kinahanglan mo text gihapon mo una ma release. Ako ibalik, walay bayad ang pag release sa plaka, ma motor man or four-wheels,” said Caindec. –
