Introduced to the public in mid-2020, the Land Transportation Management System is the Land Transportation (LTO) one-stop online portal. What was originally built for contactless and online transactions with the LTO portal is now the primary channel for driver’s license applications, renewal, student’s permit applications, and vehicle registration renewal.
To streamline their services, they require all types of day-to-day transactions to their agency to start in their online portal. So how do use it? Here is your complete LTO LTMS registration guide.
