LTO Postpones Uniform Temporary Plates; Reiterates No OR/CR, No Travel


The Land Transportation Office (LTO) has issued a new memorandum dated February 23, 2017. This new memorandum, which was made available to us, deals with the standardized temporary plates as well as the No OR/CR, No Travel policy.

Addressed to all LTO accredited dealers, this new memorandum signed by LTO Assistant Secretary Edgar C. Galvante delays the use of the standardized temporary plates from February 15, 2017 to June 1, 2017.

This means that all vehicles released from June 1, 2017 onward will be required to sport the standardized temporary plate with a prescribed format that includes information such as the Conduction Sticker number and Motor Vehicle (MV) File number prior to their release or delivery to the owner.

While this gives reprieve to all accredited vehicle dealers nationwide to secure a supplier for the standardized temporary plate, the same memorandum also reiterates the implementation of the No OR/CR, No Travel policy which is in effect.

In fact, it categorically states: “no motor vehicle shall be used or operated on or upon any highway without being registered.”

Therefore, dealers may require their customers to either take delivery of their vehicle only when the OR/CR has been made available or sign a waiver releasing the dealer of any claims/damages in case the driver or owner wants to bring his vehicle home when the OR/CR is not yet available.

It’s also worth noting that though vehicles released before June 1, 2017 need not sport the standardized temporary plate, it would be a good practice to indicate the MV File Number in your temporary plate in a clear, legible manner to avoid any potential hassle.

See the full memo below:

To: All LTO Accredited Dealers
Subject: Deferment of Memorandum Date 11 January 2017 On the Use of Conduction Sticker as Temporary License Plate Number
Date: 23 February 2017

Upon your request to defer implementation of the Memorandum requiring the use of conduction sticker as temporary license plate number, you are hereby notified that your request is granted. The implementation of the subject Memorandum shall be moved to 01 June 2017.

It is reiterated, however, that no motor vehicle shall be used or operated on or upon any highway without being registered (Sec 5 R.A. 4136, as amended).

(Signed)
Edgar C. Galvante
Assistant Secretary

  1. As per the memo it said "without being registered" does it mean u can bring ur car on the road because technically speaking it is being registered. Is that right?

    5. Sir Ulysses, I just bought a car last week and OR/CR still pending. Ano ba ang definition ng LTO sa "highway"? If I'm assuming it correctly, sa highways ko lang hndi pwede gamitin ang car with no OR/CR, so pwede ba sa mga small roads? Thanks.

    1. Depende. Ang sabi ng LTO kaya daw ng 3 to 7 days lamang, sabi ng mga dealers dahil sa backlog umabot ng ilang buwan.

    2. My agent promised me 2 to 3 weeks to get the or cr / however she was able to managed it for just 7 business days. You can follow up always to your agent for the updates.

  5. Hi Sir Uly, our car was released late December 2016, yet our ORCR is still not available according to the dealer. We were promised that the ORCR will come out after one month, but it is already more than 2 months. What can we do? We have been following up for weeks. Thanks.

    1. Malamang dealer na may problem dyan, I acquired my car Feb 8, come Feb 24 I already got my OR/CR I got my Montero from Mitsu San Fernando, mabilis sila.

    2. Pareho tayo.

      My unit was released late December 2016 and until now wala pa din yung OR/CR ko. Saang dealership mo nakuha unit mo? Ako sa Toyota Alabang.

  6. This rule is really to avoid batch processing of dealers of papers, I can attest to this since my papers were submitted last Feb28 and date of my OrCr is March 3 so LTO cam really process registration within 3-7 days. Got my unit 3-6-17. I was insistent with my dealer that I won't receive unit until registered. Instead of signing a waiver I passed the pressure to them to submit my papers without delay.

  7. My dealer Submitted my documents Jan 6 2017 and OR/CR released Jan 16 2017.

  12. Kung isang piraso lng po ang irerehistro kaya nmn po matapos within a day basta maaga ang punta sa respective region. Pero sa dami po ng car/mv dealer sa isang region at pg lahat un ngppunta sa region maiipon at maiipon po tlg yan.. Centralize na po kasi ang rehistro. Kung nareg man ng mabilis yun sa inyo ibig sabihin prinayority tlg ng dealer nyo yan na iparush pero hndi nmn lahat kaya ipriority hehehe

  13. There are factors that causes the delay of the OR CR. One would be the submission of the TPL. Some customers have their own insurance. Their insurance company sometimes doesn't submit the original COC on time. They just send it for the meantime thru email so that dealers can release the vehicles. Second would be typo errors made upon verifying the authentication no. Also I would like to comment i just read regarding the availability of the OR CR of which one person received his OR CR within 2 weeks at mitsubishi. Yes its true its faster getting it. But first, try to analize it. Which would finish faster to process the OR CR (LTO plus PNP CLEARANCE). A toyota dealer who sells in a MONTH 450 units compared to 150 units a MONTH by other brands. Obviously, the lesser volume would be faster.

    1. Most of the dealers offers free LTO, CTPL and etc. So this factor is very less likely to cause the delay in the registration.

      The dealers should not use their big sales volume as an excuse for the delay in registering the cars they sell. Why not do the registration on a daily basis? Why wait for a month?

  14. Question lang po. Regarding po sa no OR/CR no travel. Papano ung bagong bili lang. Meaning hindi talaga nya mailalabas ng Dealer ung car na walang OR/CR.

    1. just sign a the waiver na you would bear all the consequences / penalties if you get caught by traffic police or by the LTO then pede mo na iuwi yung car mo at itago sa loob ng garage mo until maibigay sa iyo yung OR/CR mo.

      Delete
  15. Stay away from Toyota Alabang. They are the worst dealer when it comes to OR/CR release. Many of its customers are complaining day by day due to the delay in releasing the OR/CR of their customers.

  16. Ang Toyota Manila Bay kaya mga boss? Any feedback kung mabilis nila nalalakad ang OR/CR?

  17. Is it true na matagal talaga ang stock report ng oto pag manufactured abroad?

  18. pa gsure lang po,, motor vehicle, ibig sbihin two wheels and for wheelers and etc. ang kasama dito. so pwede lang muna ipakita kahit OR/CR lang muna. at kung maghahanap ng temporary plate pwde ipakita itong memorandum. tama ba kasi effective na sya by june 1 pa diba

  19. Can i demand the dealer to keep the car with them until it is registered? Would that be better than stocking it in my garage (exposed to sun, dust and cats) ?

  20. Hi Guys, meron nb sa inyo dito nahuli na dahil wala pang OR/CR yung auto? Marami nb nanghuhuli ngyn at saan? TIA

  23. too keep it plain and simple, you can only use the car inside a subdivision, garage, or private roads(e.g. you own that road w/c is quite impossible). Public roads, highways(EDSA, NLEX, SLEX, C5 etc.) are not allowed.
