Every car owner knows the struggle of renewing an expired vehicle registration. An outdated registration means that the owner will have to once again compile and comply with the required documents as prescribed by the Land Transportation Office (LTO). In most cases, the process necessitates actual allotment of time.

Did you know that your license plate is key to an easier scheduling of your renewal? To help you save time for your registration, we have prepared this hack for you, courtesy of LTO’s official website.

Take a look at your license plate and have a quick analysis of the digits. These numbers actually stand as your guide in remembering the available schedules for your vehicle registration. The last digit of your plate informs you of the month you need to register your car. 1 is for January, 2 for February, and so on. Although you can renew your registration one month in advance, its best to keep track of what month you should actually take care of the paperwork.

Next, pay attention to the second to the last digit. This number tells you the alloted week registration for your car.

For plates ending in 1, 2, or 3, registration is on the 1st to the 7th working day of the month. For vehicles with 4, 5, or 6, the assigned dates run from the 8th to the 14th working day.

Those ending with 7 or 8 can register on the 15th to the 21st working day, and those with 9 or 0 can renew theirs on the 22nd til the last working day of the month. If your license plate is FOR 1234, you should be renewing your registration on the1st to the 7th working day of the 4th month, which is April.

Mark the dates to remind you of your schedule because late registrations may lead to penalties. It should also be remembered, however, that securing the date of your registration renewal is only the first step in ensuring your car.
