How to Register Your Vehicle in the Philippines

So you got your new vehicle, a car or even a motorcycle–now what? You have to make your ownership formal and official by registering your ride. But how do you register your new vehicle in the Philippines? Carmudi PH has compiled the step-by-step process to register your vehicle in the Philippines.

Ready your papers

Car documents

Most brand-new car owners let their dealers take care of car registration to save time and hassle. However, if you prefer to do it yourself, the first thing you need to do is to prepare the necessary documents needed in order to register your car. Based on the 2018 requirements set by the Land Transportation Office (LTO), you should have the following documents for car registration:

  • Commercial invoice of Motor Vehicle (MV) issued by the country of origin
  • Bill of Lading
  • BOC Certificate of Payment
  • Certificate of Stock Reported (CSR)
  • Sales invoice of the MV
  • PNP-TG MV Clearance Certificate
  • Duly accomplished and approved Motor Vehicle Inspection Report (MVIR)
  • Appropriate Insurance Certificate of Cover (COC)
  • Valid Certificate of Public Convenience duly confirmed by the LTFRB, in case of for hire Mvs
  • Valid Motorized Tricycle Operators Permit (MTOP) for TC only
  • Taxpayer’s Identification Number (TIN)

Carmudi PH has listed some of the more popular car insurance companies in this post. Do note that LTO requires you to have a CTPL of at least P950.

Know your schedule based on the plate number

Philippine license plates

If you bought a second-hand vehicle from a used car or used motorcycle dealership, you are not allowed to change its license plate. This rule is under the provisions of the Batas Pambansa Blg. 43: An Act Providing Number Plates to Owners of Motor Vehicles and Trailers.

This basically means that the car’s license plate is meant to stay with it for its lifetime. However, reclassifying your car- from government to private, or from private to “for hire”, etc. is permissible. When renewing or registering a used car under your name, your schedule is based on the license plate number:

Plate Number’s Last Digit Month
1 January
2 February
3 March
4 April
5 May
6 June
7 July
8 August
9 September
0 October
Plate Number’s Middle Digit Weekly Deadline (Working Days of the Month)
1,2,3 1st to 7th day
4,5,6 8th to 14th day
7,8 15th to 21st day
9,0 22nd until last day of the month

Do note, however, that practices in the Philippines do not necessarily require re-registration of a used car under your name. Most of the time, a deed of sale will suffice.

Stencils, Emission testing

Smoke emission testing center

Going to the LTO requires preparation for the long lines ahead inside their office; bringing snacks is preferable. Then head to the emission testing center (or have it accredited at any emission center) and pay the emission fee of P460. Stencilling is also part of the LTO service or of the government affiliated emission firm. It is usually free (unless you give the LTO personnel a tip).

Car testing usually takes around an hour to an hour and a half. Get the results before going to the next stage.

Present your documents

LTO office Philippines

Go to the LTO inspector officer, who upon showing your emission test papers, will show you to the LTO cashier. Give the teller your documents (OR, CR, CTPL, emission result) and let it be processed. Wait for your number to be called and pay the registration fee, which will be based on the type of vehicle, class, and weight.

Remember to always follow the LTO deadline discussed above, as a late registration can cost you a penalty of PHP200 if you have missed your deadline by a week. However, if your payment is delayed by more than a month, the LTO will fine you a 50 percent MV User Charge (MVUC).

Do note that you can also renew or register at any LTO District Office in another district, say for convenience sake (i.e. shorter lines). However, you need to pay PHP100 for change of venue of your vehicle registration.

Motorcycle registration fee

Registering your motorcycle also follows the same procedure. However, their fees can be different, depending on your TPL provider and the LTO office location. One motorcycle registrant in Lucena, for example, posted his payment as follows:

Emission test P450
TPL (tricycle) P700
LTO registration fee P442
Change venue P100
Total P1,692

    Hello good sir, ask ko lang po kung yung penalty for late registration e monthly yung fee? like if 3months late registered and say 1,400 ung MVUC, should i pay 2,100 for 3 months late registration? thanks!

      Hi Barney,

      From our experience, you usually pay PhP200 for late registration on a weekly basis. So kung delayed ka ng 3 weeks thats PhP600. But, kung one month or more na yung late reg mo magigi na siyang 50% of the user’s charge. But you could also check LTO customer service.

        P200/week x 4 weeks = P800/month ; Then P800/month x 12 months = P9,600/year ; So P9,600/year x 3 years = P28,800..

        You’ll pay P28,800 for 3 years of late registration. They should have updated it ASAP so the charges didn’t pile up that high.

          Penalties related to MVUC (Delinquent Registration)

          Beyond the registration week (based on middle digit)
          – for motorcycle
          – other vehicles
          Php 100.00
          Php 200.00
          Beyond the registration month but not more than 12 months (based on last digit) = 50% of the MVUC rate

          More than 12 months but without apprehension for violation of the land transportation laws, rules and regulations during the period of delinquency = 50% of the MVUC rate plus renewal

          More than 12 months but with apprehension for violation of the land transportation laws, rules and regulations during the period of delinquency (Circular No.83C-DIR-20) = 50% of the MVUC rate plus renewal for every year of delinquency

          Overloading provided that no axle shall exceed thirteen thousand five hundred kilograms (13,500kgs) = 25% of the MVUC at time of infringement for trucks and trailers with a load exceeding more than 5% of registered GVW

      Mga 2 months (earliest) makukuha nyo na po yung bagong plate number kung brand new car yung binili ninyo. Pero it would take longer (6 months to 1 year) kung renewal from old plate to new plate. You can also ask your car dealer (if nag offer sila ng LTO reg) para bigyan kayo ng time frame.

      MVUC po yung users charge sa resibo after mag register, ginagamit siya (yung pondo) ng LTO para pang kumpunihin yung mga kalsada. Kung motorsiklo po siya its P240 for single at P300 kung may side car.

      Hi Jay Michael,

      You can opt to change the venue of your registration to the nearest LTO office in area. You just need to pay an extra P100. I suggest you register to LTO Caraga, as it is more practical.

    Hello! I read from your article that “if you have missed your deadline by a week. However, if your payment is delayed by more than a month, the LTO will fine you 50 percent of the user charge.” OK, i e, I pay 3000 for my vehicle Reg. and I’m delayed of one month. My re-registration fee becomes 3000 + 1500 fine=4500. But, what if I missed year or years? Let’s say 3 years, somebody told me that the fine will be 100%. Is it computed like this..3Yrs. * 3000 + the current re-registration fee of 3000 = 12000? TYVM

      ung fren ko lumabas ung sa knya after 3 months lang daw. sabi nila depende sa auto dealer kung may “kakilala” sa loob ng LTO para bumilis ung release ng plaka.

    HI Adrian,
    Thanks for your article. It’s very informative.
    We got our new car last May 2014 through bank. The new plate (XXX XX38) was released very recently and the renewal schedule would be Aug 1st-7th. Question: When do I go to LTO to have it renewed – May or August?

    It was also mentioned in the article that we can renew a month early. This would be comforting because I am leaving in July.

    Hi guys. Are you sure that buyers of a used car or motorcycle do not need to transfer the c.r. of the vehicle/bike to their name? IMHO, they are REQUIRED by law to do so,to absolve the previous owner from any civil or criminal liabilities if the vehicle is involved in accidents. Its just like buying a gun, where the seller needs to make sure the buyer really transfers the gun registration to his or her name,to absolve the seller from liability if the buyer does not renew the registration,or sells it to another,who in turn uses it to commit a crime. Same principle..NO, a Deed of Sale is not recognized by cops or LTO officers as proof of ownership of a car or motorbike..i think a deed of sale gives the buyer or seller only a few days to process the transfer of the c.r. to the buyers name(depending on their agreement as to who will process the transfer).. Note, the LTO or pnp will impound your car/bike if you’ve been using it for more than a month with only a deed of sale to show..this is why you see so many motorbikes in LTO stations all over the country,impounded,because the new owner neglected to transfer it to their name…remember,if it ain’t registered in your name,it isn’t yours. However,you need not worry if you use a car/bike registered in the name of your parents or kins with the same family name,especially if you have the same address…

Ung kapatid ko kumuha sya ng sccoter type (MIO) in installment basis of paying Sir. Ngayon nakuha na po namin ang motorcycle tapos nagtanong po kami sa car shop kung anong dapat gawin para magamit na po ang scooter, ang sabi nila, kukuha daw po kami ng “permit to travel” sa LTO dahil di daw po sila nag iisue ng permit. Ngayon, nagpunta po kami sa LTO po, ang sabi kaylangan daw po ng Letter of Request. So tumawag din po kami agad agad sa shop and then sabi nila,di daw sila gumagawa ng Letter,. Ngayon po, bakit po hihingi ng Letter of Request ang LTO kung di gumagawa ng ganung Letter ang shop in which they must provide since ang LTO na mismo nagsabi na ganun ung gagawin namin,eh di sila makaprovide. And nalilito po ako kung ano ba talaga yang “Permit to Travel”, meron po bang Letter of Request? tama po ba ginawa namin kasi gulong gulo na po kami Sir. Sana po ay masagot nyo po ako dahil wala na po kaming mahingan ng advice kasi pati Car shop na kilalang kilala eh parang tamad eentertain ng maayos ang customer nila.
