CEBU, Philippines —  Individuals from the southern Cebu who want to renew their driver’s license and transact other businesses with the Land Transportation Office don’t to have to travel to Cebu city for the purpose.

This as a newly constructed LTO district office has been inaugurated in Carcar City and is expected to be operational within the month.

The LTO Carcar City District Office sits on a 1.3-hectare lot in Barangay Valladolid.

Branded as a “state-of-the-art complex,” it is considered as the biggest district office of LTO-7 in Central Visayas and is equipped with modern facilities.

There’s also a one-stop-shop in the complex offered by the private proponent, RoadReady, which the LTO-7 has partnered for the said project.

Among the services offered are Compulsory Third Party Liability (CTPL) services, motor vehicle inspection, medical exams, drug test, driving proficiency, practical driving test, and motor vehicle insurance.

LTO-7 regional director Victor Caindec led inauguration with Governor Gwendolyn Garcia yesterday.

The facility cost P126 million including the land acquisition but Caindec said their office has spent nothing for the project as this was done under a public-private partnership (PPP).

Carcar City Vice Mayor Nicepuro Apura welcomed the development as this will mean convenience on the part of the residents in his city, as well also to the other local government units.

Apura said that since the city has 25 dump trucks whose permits are due for renewal, they need not travel to Mandaue for motor vehicle inspections since there’s already one available in their area.

Garcia lauded Caindec for the project.

Caindec said the new district office of LTO-7 can accommodate 300-400 clients daily in normal days but since the pandemic is still up, then there is limited capacity. Also, social distancing and other health protocols would be observed.

He furthered that they are just waiting for the IT system to be fully installed so that they can start their operation by Monday. — JMD (FREEMAN)
