The reason thereof, according to the agency, is the continuing enforcement of the nationwide community quarantine, as well as health and safety protocols due to the COVID – 19 pandemic.
Therefore, those with expiring registration this month will have until June 31, 2022 to renew the said registration. There will be no penalty or surcharge to be collected for this 1 month of extension which the agency made very clear.
Just take note that the weekly schedule for the middle digit of said plate numbers shall be observed for purposes of complying with ATF regulations on physical distancing. If you’re unfamiliar with this, refer to the table below.
With the still ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and our situation here in the country, it is likely that the LTO will continue to extend the registration deadline to stick to the health protocols and social distancing guidelines mandated by the Government and the Department of Health (DOH).
Recently, the agency has also extended the validity of driver’s licenses expiring during the months of April and May. Follow this link to know more: https://unbox.ph/editorials/lto-extends-validity-of-drivers-licenses/
