DAGUPAN CITY – The Land Transportation Office (LTO) in the Ilocos Region requires vehicle owners to apply for the new standardized license plate when renewing their vehicle registration starting this January.

Francis Ray Almora, assistant regional director of LTO-Region 1, said the under the Plate Standardization Program, the new plates which has three alpha (letter) and four numeric (number) combination will be issued only to vehicles registered for the first time.

“The new alphanumeric combination will be available only to new vehicles but the new design of the license plate will now be used in all the transactions of vehicle owners particularly those who are renewing their registration starting this month,” said Almora during the KBP Forum held at the PIA-Pangasinan Office here.

Almora said for the renewal of vehicle registration, the six-digit alphanumeric of old vehicle will be retained but the design will be the new standardized plate design to keep it in tune with the international standards.

For the design, the new license plates will have a black and white color indicating the region where the vehicle was originally registered, Almora said.

He added that one of the features of the new plate is the reflectorized sheeting that is visible from a certain distance in any angle.
Almora said the new plates also include tamper-proof locks and screws permanently attaching the plates to the vehicle.
“If the motorist tries to remove the screws, the screws will break and if our LTO officials notice that it was destroyed we can then apprehend the owner,” Almora said as he reiterated that plate covers or anything that will replace the reflectivity of the plate are strictly prohibited.
He said other additions to the security features of the new plates are bar code, embossed security and permanent windshield sticker. The windshield sticker, which will serve as the “third plate” will be issued to vehicles to indicate their license plate numbers and other relevant registration information. (PIA-1, Pangasinan)
