MANILA, Philippines — The Land Transportation Office (LTO) said that it aims to resolve the backlog of over 2.4 million driver’s licenses within two to three months.

According to LTO chief Vigor Mendoza II, the temporary restraining order (TRO) on the delivery of plastic cards already expired, which means the agency can resume addressing these backlogs.

“So this week, we received 200,000 cards; all in all nakaka-300,000 na po ang ating suppliers. Ang target po sana natin one million by the end of this month,” Mendoza told reporters on Tuesday.


(This week, we already received 200,000 cards, bringing the total to 300,000 from our suppliers. Our target is to deliver one million cards by the end of this month.)


“Ang delay kasi natin sa cards nasa 2.4 million ang backlog, which we can easily wipe out dahil ang order naman natin ay nasa five million. In two to three months, wala na dapat backlog sa driver’s license,” he added.

(Our current backlog is at 2.4 million, which we can easily wipe out since we already have five million orders. In two to three months, there shouldn’t be a backlog of driver’s licenses anymore.)

Mendoza was referring to the TRO issued by the Quezon City Regional Trial Court branch 215 against LTO last August 15, which took effect for 20 days.

The Centralized Bids and Awards Committee of the Department of Transportation (DOTr) was accused of grave abuse of discretion based on a petition filed by AllCard Inc., a losing bidder for the supply of plastic cards.
