House Deputy Speaker and Las Piñas Rep. Camille Villar has filed a measure seeking to convert the Land Transportation Office (LTO) Las Piñas Extension Office into a regular district office.

Villar said the creation of a regular district office in the city will allow smoother transactions for vehicle registration and driver’s license issuance.

“Upgrading of services means development and converting the LTO office from its present extension status to a regular district office would mean faster processing of transactions and shorter queues in application and registration,” Villar said in House Bill 10499.

Villar said her proposal is consistent with the policy enshrined in the Guidelines on the Creation of LTO District Offices (LTO Memorandum Circular 2020-2200), which is to serve the greatest number of people in the transportation sector of the city and its nearby population.

“It would ease the difficulties being encountered by owners and drivers of motor vehicles. Necessarily, it means the safety of the sector,” the lady solon added.

The needed fund for the conversion will be charged against the current year’s appropriations of the Las Piñas LTO Extension Office. Thereafter, funding shall be included in the annual national budget.
