The Land Transportation Office (LTO) will digitalize more of its processes to better serve the public and clients faster and more efficiently.
“One of our initiatives is to digitalize our transactions at LTO,” Assistant Secretary Jose Arturo Tugade, LTO chief, said in Filipino at the Saturday News Forum in Quezon City.
LTO, which is tasked to register motor vehicles, issue driver’s/conductor’s licenses and permits, enforce transportation laws, rules and regulations and adjudicate apprehension cases, has recently allowed private motor vehicle owners to renew their registration online.
Through an online portal, vehicle owners will only need two requirements when renewing their registration – an inspection receipt from a private motor vehicle inspection center and a Compulsory Third Party Liability car insurance.
“Aside from that, we need to address other issues and we are now assessing and evaluating how we can computerize the process, and we are trying to see how we can digitalize or computerize the process,” Tugade said.
Apart from streamlining license application and vehicle registration, the LTO chief said the agency will digitalize transactions for dealers, manufacturers, assemblers, importers, and rebuilders.
Tugade said the digitalization projects are on top of its existing programs and mechanisms that would guard the public against fixers and corruption.
The agency has also signed a memorandum of agreement with the Department of Information and Communications Technology to help the agency in storing, managing, controlling, and maintaining its technology requirements.
