MANILA, Philippines—After more than three decades, the license plates for cars in the country will have a new design following record car sales in 2012.

In an invitation for prospective bidders, the Land Transportation Office (LTO) and the Department of Transportation and Communications revealed that new license plates for cars will have three letters followed by four numbers, instead of the current three.

The refresh is part of the LTO’s plate standardization program to be implemented starting July this year up to June 2014.—Paolo G. Montecillo
