LTO Issues Standard Conduction Plate for Cars Registered starting June 1, 2017

LTO released a memo last January 11, 2017 related to conduction sticker plates that is causing some confusion to the motoring public.  Here is all the information we gathered to help our customers and friends.

Last January 11, 2017, LTO issued a memo that the conduction sticker numbers will serve as temporary license plate numbers for vehicles.  They also provided a standard design of conduction plates.  All dealers are required to provide conduction plates that are reflectorized and follow the standard design for cars registered starting Feb 15, 2017.  We called the LTO Operations Division.  They clarified that the new standard design is indeed required for vehicles bought and registered starting Feb 15, 2017.

Later on Feb 23, 2017, LTO released another circular deferring the implementation of the new LTO standard design to June 1, 2017. (see memo copy below)

So if your car OR and CR shows that it was registered before June 1, 2017, you are not required to follow this memo.

You can read the memo here:

Frequently asked questions:

My car is new and don’t have my LTO plate. It was registered 2016.  Can I order a personalized conduction plate?

Yes, you can still order a personalized conduction plate.  The LTO standard conduction plate design is required for cars registered starting Jun 1, 2017 only.  You can order your plates in conductionplate.com/order.

I registered my car June 20, 2017.  Can I order a personalized conduction plate?

Yes, you can order Conduction Plates but only the LTO standard design. You must order and use the design similar to dealer-issued conduction plates. Our LTO standard Conduction plates are reflective and are compliant with the set guidelines of LTO.We discourage the use of other designs to comply with the set LTO guidelines.

I ordered a conduction plate from Conduction Plate Manila in 2016.  Do I need to change my plates to the LTO standard conduction plate design?

No.  The directive is only applicable to vehicles registered starting June 1, 2017.  You can still continue using your Conduction Plate Manila plates until your official LTO plates arrive.

If my car bought after June 1, 2017 is not compliant, who will be fined?

Based on the memo, it is the dealer who will be fined.  The dealer is responsible for providing the plate complying with the LTO standard conduction plate design.

I am a car dealer.  Do you make the new LTO standard Conduction Plate Design?

Yes.  Please email us at conductionplate@gmail.com with the following details (Dealer name, quantity, contact person, contact details- landline, mobile) so we can provide you a quotation.

What to do when your LTO plate is lost or needs replacement

Mutilated plate

Mutilated plate

We have been receiving requests for the manufacturing of lost plates so we want to advise everyone the steps in requesting for duplicate plates from LTO.

If your vehicle plates are lost or needs replacement, you must report the loss/need to replace in LTO.  They can issue an Authority to Use Improvised Plates while the official LTO plates are not yet available.

Here are the steps:

1. Prepare a notarized Affidavit of Loss

2. Go to the LTO office where the vehicle was last registered.

Duplicate Plates/Replacement Stickers (MC 90-120; Memorandum dated December 15, 2003)

Certified True Copy of Certificate of Registration/ Original Certificate of Registration (CR)
Certified True Copy of Official Receipt/Original Official Receipt (OR) of latest payment of MVUC and other fees
Affidavit of Loss/mutilation
Duly accomplished and approved Motor Vehicle Inspection Report (MVIR)
Certification from the LTFRB that MV plates have not been surrendered, in case of for hire MVs
Secretary’s certificate in case MV is in the name of a corporation or DTI certificate of registration in case of sole proprietorship

Procedure in LTO:
1. Proceed to the transaction counters and submit all the required documents to the Evaluator for evaluation and computation of fees.
2. Actual inspection of motor vehicles with duly accomplished MVIR. (This form is available for download here. You can accomplish this form prior to transacting your business at the LTO.)
3. Proceed to the Cashier when your name is called for the necessary fees and obtain an Official Receipt (OR).
4. Proceed to the Releasing Counter when your name is called to obtain the Certificate of Registration (CR), plates, stickers, and other requested documents.
Venue: Any Online District / Extension Office

LTO should issue you the Authorization to Use Improvised Plates. This is usually valid for 90 days from issuance.

3. You can now order and use improvised plates while waiting for your LTO plates to be made.
