The portal is expected to be a hub for all LTO transactions
If you want to renew your driver’s license while avoiding potential infection of viruses other than COVID-19 LTO has made its online portal official to the public. Made official last June 8, the LTO portal aims to make car registration and license applications more efficient while complying with new normal and social distancing guidelines.
The portal is accessible 24/7 and covers Metro Manila, Laoag, Bayombong, Roxas, Tagbuiliran, Dumaguete, Ormoc, Butuan, Pagadian, Malaybalay, Lipa, Calapan, Naga, Tagum, Davao, General Santos, and Baguio. Currently, you can set an appointment to your nearest LTO branch for select transactions, along with cashless payments for renewal fees, registration fees, and fines.
All of the data in the portal is safe, as LTO uses its new Land Transport Management System (LTMS), which comprises of an Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS) that scans the client’s faces and fingerprints. How efficient is the portal? According to LTO, the data center in Manila can do around a million transactions per day.
“The new LTO portal is one of the key steps on our way to becoming a frontline government agency showcasing fast and efficient public service for a progressive land transport sector,” LTO chief and Transportation Assistant Secretary Edgar Galvante said.
