The agency started releasing these plates last Tuesday, January 19, at the Seaview Wing of SM Seaside City Cebu. Applicants can drop by during weekdays, from 2 to 6:30pm.
The distribution covers motorcycles that were initially registered from February to April 2018. Owners must first book an appointment by texting to the LTO their name, plate and MV file numbers, and date of first registration. The LTO made it clear that it will not entertain those without a schedule and confirmation message.
Claimants must also bring photocopies of their OR/CR, and the owner’s valid government-issued ID. Representatives, meanwhile, meed to present a notarized authorization letter with their valid ID and that of the owner.
For company-owned vehicles, a notarized Special Power of Attorney and Secretary Certificate with one photocopy of the valid IDs of both the secretary and authorized person are required.
In a report by Cebu Daily News, LTO-7 Regional Director Victor Caindec said a total of 18,879 motorcycle plates are ready for pickup. He added that 200,000 more plate numbers are expected to arrive this year.
Last year, the LTO-National Capital Region West Regional Office released some 90,000 sets of rear metal plates to select member companies of the Motorcycle Dealers Association of the Philippines.
