The Land Transportation Office (LTO) 7 would like to remind the motorcycle dealers of the earlier released certification on zero backlogs of transactions for registration, this is amid the allegation of said “spokesperson” of the group of motorcycle dealers on the delays of Official Receipts (ORs) and Certificates of Registration (CRs).

LTO 7 regional director Victor Emmanuel Caindec would like to reiterate the recently issued certificate of zero back of transactions last May 18.

“This is to respectfully inform your good office that both the New Registration Unit 7 & MAIRDOEs have zeroed backlog of transactions received until May 11, 2022. It is our honor to inform you that we have zeroed out the backlog transactions as of present date,” read the certification.

The director would also like to educate the said “lawyer” on the 2019 LTO’s Citizen’s Charter and to abide the by Republic Act 11235 or the “Motorcycle Crime Prevention Act.”

“I agree the Citizens Charter should be followed. So his clients should follow the process and NOT submit records on batching. Also, they should abide by RA 11235,” said RD Vic.

Under Section 4 of RA 11235, “The owner of a motorcycle
shall register his or her motorcycle with the LTO within five (5) days from such acquisition of ownership. Failure of the owner to register within five days from the acquisition of ownership, or to immediately report its sale or disposition, shall subject the owner to a penalty of imprisonment or arresto mayor to prison correccional, as defined under the Revised Penal Code, or fine of not less than Twenty thousand pesos (P20,000.00) but not more than Fifty thousand pesos (P50,000.00) or both.”

RD Caindec also reminded the representative of the motorcycle dealers that no regional director, “has the power to create a new office, not even an NRU (New Registered Unit). I’m surprised that their lawyer is feigning ignorance of basic laws and administrative rules.”

The regional director added that a meeting with MAIRDOEs was attended by the majority of dealers sometime in March. “Major dealers were present including motorcycle dealers. The MOU was discussed, but since they didn’t send a representative, then perhaps that explains why they aren’t aware.”/PR
