and procedures in the acquisition of optional motor vehicle special plates
are hereby promulgated for the observance of all concerned:
There shall be two attempts to be made by the special courier in delivering

any succeeding delivery that shall be made will be for the account of the

Costs of Special License Plate
Rationale for the Special Plates
The MV owner may choose from any of the following pricing schemes:
It is typical for motorists in the Philippines as it is in the other Asian
countries to strike a preference toward certain alpha-numeric character
combinations for personal reasons and identification purposes. Such
tendency provides a good opportunity for the LTO to increase its revenue
by implementing a different pricing scheme in the issuance of MV plates
with 01-100 numeric characters which are to be matched with the alphas,
as in three-letter and two/three number combinations.
As a revenue-raising measure, increased cost shall be collected for
production of unissued motor vehicle plates with choice characters such as
triple-alpha; triple numeric; numeric characters 168; any numeric
combination with identical first and third characters but 0 for middle digit
e.g., 101 or 707; and any other combinations which do not form part of the
regular series of MV plates, when requested for production by a MV
Any triple alpha and non-triple alpha + two (2) numeric character
combinations 01-99, shall cost Twenty Five Thousand Pesos
(Php 25,000.00) inclusive of the handling charge by the
authorized LTO courier.
As a step to solve the problem of depleting alpha-numeric combinations,
the letter “I”, “O”, and “Q” shall have a different font to distinguish it from
Sports Utility Vehicles (SUV)
Asian Utility Vehicles (AUV)
The following MV types shall be excluded from the coverage of those
which can be issued special plates:
Public Utility Vehicles
Cargo Trucks (private/for hire)
Service Vehicle (hotel limousines, tourist
rent-a-car, ambulance and funeral
MV with more than 4-wheel category
Where to Apply for Special Plates
Application can be made at the LTO Central Office or at any
regional/district office which shall forward it to the OMVSP Committee
Central Office (CO), for processing. The said committee reserves the right
to approve or reject all applications and shall be responsible in delivering
directly, by special courier, the special plates ordered by the MV registered
Nature and Coverage of Special Plates
The OMVSP is considered as a regular MV plate. As such it shall be
issued in pairs and it shall be permanently assigned to a specified motor
vehicle during its lifetime. Moreover, it is optional and shall be issued only
upon direct application by the owner of a brand new private motor vehicle
which is for initial or first-time registration with the LTO. The MV’s
covered herein are as follows:
Any combination of characters such as triple-alpha, triplenumeric and other combination of characters shall cost Fifteen
(Php 15,000.00) inclusive of the
handling charge by the authorized LTO courier.
Any triple alpha and non-triple alpha + numeric character 100,
shall cost Fifteen Thousand Pesos (Php 15,000.00) inclusive of
the handling charge by the authorized LTO courier.
How to Apply for Special Plates
Since the special plates ordered shall be sent by special courier to facilitate
and to secure delivery, it is important that the applicant MV owner indicates
correctly and clearly his/her forwarding address as well as his/her
contact/telephone number. If for any reason, he/she cannot personally
receive the plates, the person authorized to receive in his behalf must be
indicated in his application.
The cost of special plate does not include the applicable fees and chargers
that a MV owner pays to the LTO for the registration of the unit.
Special Plates Specification
The special plates shall have the same green embossed alpha numeric
character and green border with the green slogan, “Matatag na Republika”
and plate format of Central Rizal Monument in full color graphics – as the
regular plates for private motor vehicles. The quality and use of special
font shall be adopted for purposes of this program.
Suppletory and Superseding Clauses
All related existing rules and regulations are incorporated by reference as
an integral part hereof and those in conflict herewith are deemed modified
or superseded accordingly.
This circular shall take effect on 11 October 2004
For strict compliance.
