MANILA — After launching a website that enables motorists to check if their cars were tagged under the no-contact apprehension policy scheme, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) will launch another portal this week to check if a person’s drivers license has pending violations with the agency.

During the agency’s weekly radio program on Sunday, MMDA Digital Media Deputy and Planning Officer Ria Rubia announced the launch on Friday (June 17) of the “E-license” verification website.

“We will launch the www.mmdaelicense.com where motorists can input their license number to view if they have committed violations recorded by the MMDA,” Rubia explained.

The information included here are the specific details of the violation like the time and place where it was committed and the corresponding fine.

She added that payment of fines for violations would also be reflected in the database. The website will also contain information on the no-contact apprehension policy of the agency, according to Rubia.

“We will also include a copy of the summon there,” the planning officer said.

Rubia said that the aim of the agency in launching the portal was to lessen the number of inquiries the MMDA receives on a daily basis and also save motorists from the hassle of calling the agency and inquiring about their violations.

The MMDA also said all the list of past and recent violations will be included in the website. “A motorist can see if there are still unpaid violations under his or her name,” Rubia said.

She, however, clarified that the violations to be listed by the website would only be those tagged by the MMDA and would not include those under the local government units.

“We are working on putting all these violations together [in one website],” Rubia said.

Last month, the MMDA launched a similar website called “MayHuliBa.com” which recorded violations caught under the no-contact apprehension policy.  The new system uses hundreds of closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras installed in strategic locations throughout the metropolis like Edsa, C-5 and Commonwealth Avenue.
