You’re probably familiar of the Land Transportation Office or LTO. Branched under the Department of Transportation and Communication, LTO is the agency responsible for all forms of land transport, along with the implementation of transportation laws, rules, and regulations.
This is also where car owners register their vehicles and where drivers can apply for and renew their licenses. In addition, the LTO files and handles complaints made against other motor vehicle owners and operators in the Philippines.
Since the LTO handles numerous transactions everyday, the agency decided to put up branches on multiple cities nationwide. If you need to process a complaint or renew your driver’s license, below is a list of LTO branches in Metro Manila to go to.
Address: Gen. Gas Plant Bldg., Fishport Complex, North Bay, Navotas City
Contact Number: (02) – 8283-3510
Director: Arnaldo O. Oliveros
Located within the Fishport Complex, the Navotas district office of the LTO is where most truck operators and drivers typically head to. If this happens to be the branch closest to you, expect plenty of people on any given day.
Location: 121 Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong City
Director: Noel D. Batolina
Contact Number: (02) 8532-2726
This satellite office happens to be in the middle of Shaw, so expect traffic from this side of the metro. Like all other LTO branches, requests for licenses and renewal can be done here.
Location: Gregorio Araneta Ave, Quezon City
Contact Number: (02) – 8711-2805
Director: Ricardo L. Tan
Given the sheer size of the National Capital Region, it makes plenty of sense to have a central LTO hub. LTO NCR is one of the busiest LTO branches given it’s proximity to EDSA.
Location: G/F Malabon City Hall Bldg.,, F. Sevilla Blvd, Malabon
Contact Number: (02) 8351-7628
Director: Arnel B. Ropa
EDSA too far for you? Residents of Malabon can head to LTO Malabon if they need to renew their licenses or check coding schemes.
Location: FMC-LTO Compound, Alabang–Zapote Road, Talon Uno, Las Pinas
Director: Celeste P. Mayoralgo
Contact Number: (02) 8875-2030
What’s interesting about this particular branch is that it also happens to be located in the same compound as Francisco Motors. So if you’re looking to renew your license or registration, it may also be the perfect time to get your car checked or shop around for parts.
Location: Butel Bldg., Pililia St., Makati City
Contact Number: (02) 8895-8678 or 8897-5198
Director: Luciano L. Caparas
LTO Makati is also one of the busiest LTO branches in the country. Make sure to queue early here to avoid delay and rush hour traffic.
Location: #3 Biak na Bato Street, corner P. Florentino Street, Barangay, Sta. Mesa Heights, Quezon City
Contact Number: (02) 8922 9061
Director: Simplicio R. De Guzman
Another one of the multiple LTO branches located in Quezon City is LTO La Loma. Getting here is easy via LRT Blumentritt.
Location: 1200 East Avenue, Diliman, Quezon City
Contact Number: (02) 8921-9017 or 8709-3053
Director: Honorio S. Quiambao
LTO Diliman is the agency’s headquarters among LTO branches in Quezon City. Expect traffic when around this area as it also caters to major establishments like UP Diliman, UP TechnoHub, and Teacher’s Village.
Location: 262 Santolan Road, San Juan City (and in San Juan Commercial Complex in N. Domingo Street for licensing needs)
Contact Number: (02) 8723-6821
Director: Delia G. Hernandez
Location: 173, 20th Avenue, Cubao City
Contact Number: (02) 8995-7652
Director: Fe N. Cascante
Location: 96 Mirasol Street, San Roque, Cubao
Contact Number: (02) 8440-6424
Director: Ricardo L. Tan
Location: Butel Bldg., Tayuman St., Sta. Cruz, Manila
Contact Number: (02) 8731-3833 or 8749-7745
Director: Ms. Lilia DC Cadores
Apart from the many LTO branches in Metro Manila, LTO has also put up satellite offices inside Robinson’s Malls. Take note, though, that these offices are for license renewal requests only: Robinson’s Galleria, Novaliches, Manila, Metro East, and Las Piñas.
The Senate recently approved the creation of new LTO offices across multiple provinces in the Philippines, in the hopes of providing “faster registration and more efficient services” to Filipinos. Check out the map of new LTO branches shared by the Department of Transportation below.
Before visiting an LTO branch, whether for car registration or renewal, check the operating hours of said LTO office and make sure to bring all requirements. (Most LTO branches operate from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Mondays to Fridays). qThis does not only save you time but also prevents further hassle. For more info about the LTO, visit their website (1) of official Facebook page (2).
