The Land Transportation Office removes its prior order to implement a”no plate, no travel policy”, and change it to “no registration, no travel” instead.
According to the LTO, new vehicles without their new license plates can still travel provided they are registered, to avoid being fined.
During the hearing of Senate Blue ribbon committee, LTO Asst. Sec. Alfonso Tan assured everyone that as long as the vehicle is registered but no plate number yet, the agency will give them enough time to get their plate numbers since it appears to be unfair to those with newly bought cars.
Senate President Pro Tempore Ralph Recto questioned the LTO on its policy on plate number renewal and ordered the LTO and LTFRB to withdraw their Joint Administrative order, fining anyone of Five thousand pesos if they travel without license plates.
The Senate will possibly resume next week with its investigation regarding the said matter.
