CEBU, Philippines — To continue to discourage fixers, the Land Transportation Office is stepping up its on-site issuance of student permits and renewal of driver’s license and motor vehicle registration.

LTO Chief Assistant Secretary Atty. Vigor D. Mendoza II said the order to do so came from President “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr. and DOTr Secretary Jaime J. Bautista in order to bring government services closer to the people under the Bagong Pilipinas program.

Mendoza said one perception they are trying to change is that LTO transactions are difficult and take time, discouraging news likely spread by fixers themselves to take advantage of the situation.

“This wrong information is being sown by the fixers themselves to their advantage. Magpapakalat sila ng mga maling impormasyon na mahirap ang transactions sa LTO para nga naman sila ang bida at sila ang kikita,” said Mendoza.

He added that this is no longer the case. In fact, the transactions are now fast and comfortable.

He said all regional directors and district offices have been instructed to replicate the on-site issuance of student permits and other LTO-related transactions in their respective areas. — (FREEMAN)
