The Land Transportation Office (LTO) has announced an extension on the due date of registration for motor vehicles which are due to be registered in February of this year. As opposed to being required to complete the renewal of registration within the month, vehicle owners have until March 8 to renew their registration without any penalties or fines.
Reference, if your plate number, conduction sticker, or MV File number requires you to renew this month, and has a second to the last digit of 1, 2, or 3, you have been granted a 1 week extension with the new due date being February 15, as opposed to the previous February 7. Subsequently, second to the last digits of 4, 5, and 6, now have until February 22 to complete their registration. Likewise, 7 or 8 gets an extension until February 28, while those with 9 or 0, have until March 8 to complete their renewal of registration.

Additionally, be sure to check in your specific municipality whether the implementation of the Motor Vehicle Inspection System, or MVIS, has already begun. If this is the case, then you must first proceed to a Private Vehicle Inspection Center (PVIC) and pay a P600 inspection fee. Once your motorcycle has been inspected and issued a certificate, only then will it be valid for renewal of registration. Otherwise, the previous method of Private Emission Testing Centers (PETC) will be followed.
