Check LTO Vehicle Registration via SMS

Here's a (quite) new and easy way to check registration of your car registration status at the Land Transportation Office (LTO) using just one text message:

to check with LTO, send a message like this : LTOspaceVEHICLEspaceABC123
to 2600

e.g. LTO VEHICLE ABC123

ABC123 is your vehicle's PLATE NUMBER
send to 2600 (all network i.e. Smart, Talk N Text, Globe, Sun Cellular)

a sample auto-generated response for my car reads:

"Plate no: XXX888/Make:toyota/Model:vios 1.5g a/t/Year:2006/Color;subtle gold/Registered last 07/21/2006, has no LTO apprehension, has no LTO alarm. P2/text"

This is a great innovation that saves time for car owners instead of going to the LTO office in Quezon City. I can use this later to check status once I register again my car whose license will expire in a few months.

Note this is also a great tool for traffic police (Traffic Management Group) to randomly check vehicles and catch carnapped vehicles and/or red-flagged ones if they're really serious with it.

  13. I have tried it just now.i got a reply, "Sorry we cannot process your request right now. Please try again later." i tried it again after 5 minutes and got the same reply. when i checked my balance there was already a deduction of P5.00. bakit naman ganoon, there shouldn't be any charges kasi wala namang info na ibinigay. ano ito racket?

  21. Just tried 2day and it worked, even on my 1966 beetle. However, shoud be better if included kung kanino ito last registered kc maraming buy and sell ang open DOS at walang change of ownership.
