LTO Car Registration Renewal: requirements and expenses

It’s the time of the year again when we have to pay for the car registration renewal in LTO. Honestly, the LTO should have an option for the car owners to register their vehicles for 2 years, 3 years, etc… So that we won’t have to go yearly to the LTO and undergo the same process over and over again. I listed the documents needed for car registration renewal and our expenses for this year.

Documents required for renewal of private vehicle registration are:

1. Original copy of Certificate of Registration and last year’s original Official Receipt of payment

2. Insurance Certificate of Cover or Third Party Liability (TPL) insurance – paid Php 970

3. Emission Testing, go to an accredited testing center. In LTO Las Pinas, you can find the Green Star Emission Testing inside the LTO – paid Php 415

4. Motor Vehicle Inspection Report form – you can download this form at the LTO website

The vehicle registration fee depends on the year and make of your car, in our case, we paid Php 2,629. A total of Php 4,014 spent on car registration renewal.

Car registration at the LTO is fast and orderly, you can finish the whole procedure in 2 to 3 hours. No need to deal with fixers.

  1. Hi!

    Pano kaya ako mag renew. I just bought a second hand card thru bank financing. ang kaso, nasa bang ung original OR/CR. photo copy lang nasa akin.

    pede na ba yun na lang ang dalhin ko?

    please advise.. kailangan ko na mag register within this week. march and regustration ko dapat.


  2. do u have any list kung magkano ung babayaran sa registration ng car coz im planning to buy used car in april …


  3. I just renewed my car registration yesterday and inorasan ko talaga ung pag process ko (no fixers) and it just took me 56minutes. I went after lunch.

    I advise you to bring the following para mabilis ung process: Insurance, Emission documents and photocopies of OR/CR. Ginawa o na ung emission outside LTO kasi pag sa loob pa ginawa eh andaming chechebureche at kung sino sinong “fixers” and lalapit sau. So once you enter the premises of LTO, sasalubungin ka na agad or if not look for “inspectors” na mag stencil ng car. den dretso processing na ng papers.

    Here are the expenses:
    *CTPL – Php560; i didn’t get from the in house Insurance of LTO kasi may patong na 400. I got Mapfre Insular. One day process lang sila. I just called and sent them the requirements via email then cash on delivery na yung documents.

    *Emission – Php415

    *Stencil Php40; T.I.P lang to kasi kailangan may inspector na gumawa talaga nito.

    *Registration fee – (you can base it on ur previous OR) it varies, mine is 1930

    Total of 2945.

    “No to fixers!”

  10. I loss my original copies of my CR and OR, and also the vehicle is registered last year from the name of the original owner, the good news is I have photocopies of CR and OR, my question is can I register my vehicle in normal process with only photocopies of CR and OR? and in the name of the original owner?..


  11. just finish my car registration yesterday!
    HEre is my tips…


    1. OR and CR photocopy is enough. But if you loss your original CR and only have a photocopy then make sure you save a copy for yourself aside from submitting to LTO, because it will not be returned to you after registration

    2. insurance- TPL, get it an advance outside to save time at registration, ex. MAPFRE, browse it internet for more info. Private insurance firms TPL are cheaper than insurance from LTO premises.

    3.emission testing results, OR and CR required, if photocopy only make sure it is clear like the MV file no. should be readable, otherwise verify first at LTO customer service at the office itself or phone if possible.

    Here are the procedures (LTO P. Tuazon, Q.C.)
    NOTE: no-fixer, and photocopy of OR/CR are submitted – less than one hour, if no problems encountered

    1. submit all the requirements to inspection officer (at P. Tuazon LTO, the inspection officer has a small office w/ window inside the compound)
    2. the inspection officer will returned all your documents and will give you a form called MVIR
    3. you don’t have to fill up the form, just find an inspector aide and request for a stencil, no need to give a tip.
    4. after the inspector aide stenciled your car, you’ll be instructed to go back to inspector officer and submit all the documents again, he will sign somewhere in the form.
    5. you’ll be instructed to go to a certain window no. and submit all the documents there for verification.
    6. sit and wait for your name to be called which you’ll be instructed to go to a certain window no. for payment.
    7. after payment, you’l receive your new OR, wait for your name to be called again to receive your documents you submitted before.
    8. with OR and your documents on hand, you’ll be instructed to proceed to a certain window no. to submit all the documents including your new OR.
    9. wait for your name to be called, you’ll receive your new OR and stickers.

    -at P. Tuazon LTO, the compound is small, the entrance is also the exit (one way)
    There is a parking lot at the front of the office, but w/ a fee of 25 pesos.
    just be cautious before going inside the compound, the inspector aides there will advice you where you should park your car.

    -Go to an Emission Testing Center outside the LTO. The fees are same.

    -The LTO inspector aides are identified by their polo shirt, it mark’s the word “INSPECTOR AIDE” at the back of their shirt and the shirt is colored blue.

    It is very simple right?, no need for fixers

    Just went to Pasig LTO for the renewal today for my 1999 Galant.

    I thought all in all it would cost around 4.5k max.. but I was wrong and got stung..
    the MVUC really depends on the displacement of the car and the year.

    My car is 2000cc and though it is not the v6 (3000CC), still it is considered a Medium Car.. and older than 5 years..

    The premium came out to be 6330. I asked why and the employee there told me, that it is a medium car unlike small cars. The cost for the Newer model Medium car would be 3600 php but since it is an older car, it is 6000+.

    All in all with the emission test and buying the insurance,

    it totaled 8k today.. Money just sunk again..


  13. Hi,

    Will soon purchase a ex hotel service car and I was wondering what the procedure is for dropping. It’s an ’07 model with yellow plates last registered back in ’07. Na replibin siya and I bought it from a bidder (nag depo lang muna ako dahil waiting pa for the release of the papers from the bank). I am totally unfamiliar with the procedure, cost (although I have an idea), and waiting period. Can you give me n idea how to go about it? Much thanks.

    Thank you.


  26. Thanks sa info.. I own an old van, nawala ko yung OR and CR ko. How do I process that? Would really appreciate a reply kelanagn ko na sya maregister asap…


  27. I just want to ask.. Tama ba yung computation ng LTO for 1 year late registration of my honda accord car? di ako nakapagregister ng 2011.. then nung mgparehistro ako this 2012, ganito na yung computation ng LTO..

    Actual MVUC – 4,800

    pero siningil kami ng 9,600 (double the price of actual MVUC) plus 2400 for penalty..

    9,600 – MVUC
    + 2,400 – penalty
    + other fees..
    12,329.06 – Total

    wala pa dyan yung insurance, emission at inspection

    insurance – 950
    emission – 415
    inspection – 50


    kintaro Reply:

    I had the same experience with you. My lasr registration was year 2010 and just renewed sept.3 2012. Nadoble din ang MVUC amounting to 12000 compare to last OR w/c is only 6000. I thought penalty lang ang madadagdag pero pati ung MVUC nadoble. Ganun n ba talaga ngaun?


    OBET Reply:

    @anne & kintaro,, siguro nga ganun ang mvuc charges pag more than 1 year ang late, say 1 year or 2 or 3 years late nadodoble ang MVUC fee plus penalty 50% ng original MVUC fee. kasi yung car ko lancer 1.3cc model 1997 late ng 2 months or say less than 1 year hindi na doble ang MVUC fee, pero 50% ng original MVUC fee lang ang penalty ko.
