BORONGAN CITY, Eastern Samar, April 18 (PIA) -The Land Transportation Office (LTO) Borongan Disrict Office issued the strict implementation of “No Registration, No Travel Policy.”
Ms. Narcisa Tabarnero, LTO Supervising Transportation Regulation Officer said all new vehicles should be registered within seven days from the date of Vehicles Sales Invoice (VSI).

Tabarnero disclosed that if the vehicles is registered already at the LTO, he/she must present the following documents: Certificate of Registration (CR), Official Receipt (OR) for payment of Motor Vehicle User's Charge (MVUC) and license plate numbers.
