Cebu City – The first and only drive-thru vehicle registration renewal in the Visayas has served more than 2,000 motorists in its one month of operations.
Land Transportation Office (LTO) 7’s drive-thru registration renewal which is located in its MVIC Complex in Subangdaku, Mandaue City has renewed 1,113 motor vehicles and 1,299 motorcycle registrations as of Tuesday, August 11.
LTO 7 regional director Victor Emmanuel Caindec said that the MVIC drive-thru facility for the vehicle registration renewal started last July 6.
He added that the same system came from Davao City, “We are very happy with the outcome of our MVIC drive-thru especially on its first month.”
The director said that this system is very timely especially with the continuing threat of the coronavirus (Covid-19).
Mandaue City Council passed a resolution allowing the said drive-thru system in the City last July.
City Councilor Nerissa Soon-Ruiz who authored the said resolution described the system can eliminate fixers and will minimize red tape.
From July 6 till August 11, LTO 7’s drive-thru vehicle registration renewal catered 2,412 motorists who don’t need to go to an office to renew their registration.
Caindec added that in less than an hour, motorists can now get their certificate of registrations without going out of their vehicles.
“One vehicle will take 45 to 50 minutes of processing. Due to the slower Internet connection in the past few days, we are averaging at least 1hr now. But average transactions per day has reached 150,” said Caindec.
This system is only applicable to the renewing vehicle registration and not for new vehicle registrations.
The director also urged all vehicle owners who were given an extension for the validity of their registration following the pandemic, should avail of the said service.
Vehicle owners should bring a clear copy of their certificate of registration (CR) and official receipt (OR), insurance certificate of cover (COC), emission test result, and stencils of chassis no. and engine no.
The MVIC drive-thru facility in Mandaue City which is the first and only drive-thru facility in the Visayas offering renewal of vehicle registration, operates from Monday to Friday from 8 AM to 5 PM.
