Muling magbabalik ang Land Transportation Office (LTO) on wheels sa Parañaque Integrated Terminal exchange sa Sabado, Hulyo 10.

Ang LTO on wheels ay One-Stop Shop ng ahensiya para sa mga nais mag-renew ng rehistro ng kanilang sasakyan.

Maaari ding mag-avail ng iba pang serbisyo ng LTO gaya ng smoke emission testing at third party insurance.

Ayon sa ahensya, minarapat nitong palawigin ang serbisyo ng LTO on wheels upang maiwasan nang pumunta at magsiksikan sa LTO offices ang mga motorista.

Wala namang kailangang pre-registration para sa makapag-avail ng LTO services. Kailangan lamang dalhin ang record ng dating rehistro at ng mismong sasakyan para sa inspeksyon ng road worthiness nito.

Magsisimula ang LTO on wheels ng alas-otso ng umaga hanggang alas-tres ng hapon sa gate 2 second floor ng PITX. – RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Joan Nano)
