LTO Vehicle Transfer of Ownership and Registration Guide

Here is a step-by-step guide for LTO Transfer of Ownership and Registration. My friend Rovik decided to transfer the ownership of his Toyota Revo into his name and along the way he made a guide for those who might need it in the future. 


Sign Inside Camp Karingal
Sign Inside Camp Karingal


Documents to prepare:

  1. Notarized Deed of Sale (3 copies although you need only one)
  2. Photocopies of the seller's IDs (4 copies)
  3. Photocopies of the buyer's IDs (4 copies)
  4. Photocopies of the CR and latest OR (4 copies)
  5. Certificate of Registration
  6. Latest Official Receipt
  7. Money, around 5-6k

Part I: PNP Clearance
  1. Go to Camp Karingal in Sikatuna Village, QC.
  2. After passing the main gate, take the 1st right turn and follow the road until you reach the motor vehicle inspection division. Its a small 2-storey white building to the left with a police parking lot to the right and a bit ahead there's a stencil area and car impound.
  3. Go inside the white building and go to the door to the right. Tell the clerk you're applying for clearance for a transfer of ownership. The clerk will take the original deed of sale, CR, OR, and a 2 copies of each of your photocopied documents. If you forgot to photocopy documents there is a photocopier in the office.
  4. The clerk will instruct you to make a payment in Landbank. It costs 300 but its annoying since you have to go out of the camp and go either to the East Ave. Landbank or the QC City Hall Landbank. Make the payment and come back to the camp.
  5. Go back to the clerk, we will give back the photocopies he asked for and instruct you to go to the stencil area. He will also give you a pink sheet of paper which you need to fill up before having the car's chassis number and engine number stenciled.
  6. Park the car in the stencil area, look for the macro-etching technicians. They're usually seated in the left corner end of the lot under the Alateris tree.
  7. Give the photocopies and pink paper to him, he will inspect the papers and tell you if you have something missing. If everything is in order he will ask for the stencil boys. This might take a while because it seems they work in batches.
  8. The stencil guy will do his thing. Afterwards he will give the stencil sheets to the technician. The technician will sign them and tell you, "ikaw na po bahala sa kanya (referring to the stencil guy)". I gave the stencil guy P100.
  9. Move the car in front of the white building. This area is used for picture-taking.
  10. Submit the stencils to the clerk, he will then instruct you to move your car to the front of the building (step 9) and he will ask you to go out and wait for him.
  11. Picture taking with the policeman
  12. The clerk will direct you to the encoders who have your documents. It seems they will make your TPL for you. The encoder will ask for P1075 for the TPL. At this point you will have your CR, OR, and TPL.
  13. The PNP clearance will be ready after 3 business days. However if you want to get the clearance in a few hours the clerk will offer to rush the processing. If you go this route he will ask for your original OR and CR again. I got the clearance and other documents from the encoder a few hours later and paid P500. I think the encoder and clerk are business partners in the office lolz.

Part II: LTO
Prerequisites: PNP Clearance
Note: I think the steps I did were out of order I'll try to reconstruct the proper order
  1. Go to the LTO Office where your vehicle was registered. In my case it was in Mandaluyong
  2. Go to the inspector, he will check the documents. Tell him you're having the transferring the ownership of the vehicle and also registering it.
  3. The inspector will refer you to the Records window, he will then direct you to have your car undergo emission testing.
  4. Have your car undergo emission test. Paid P420 for this.
  5. Go back to the inspector. He will have the car stenciled. Paid P100 to the stencil guy.
  6. Go back to the records window and give the documents. He will tell you that the transfer will need to be approved by the Division Chief.
  7. Wait for your name to be called, after which you will proceed to the payments window. Paid P2530 for this (wtf is MVUC? it costs P2000 by itself!)
  8. You will receive the OR, have it photocopied and signed by the Division Chief.
  9. Upon getting the signed photocopy of the OR, go to the sticker window and give the OR and photocopy of the OR. He will then give you the stickers and the OR.
  10. Wait for your CR.

Notes on LTO Registration: I've not experienced having to do steps 7-9 when registering my car, it's probably because I did everything myself. Usually after the emission test I just have to wait and then pay and then the I'll get the OR with the sticker.

I have to say this too, the LTO Mandaluyong Division Chief and some of his staff worked past 5pm to get my stuff done. Honestly I was surprised lolz, I was expecting na di matatapos yung registration that day.

Costs:
1. PNP Clearance - 300
2. PNP stencil - 100 (your call how much you will give the guy)
3. TPL - 1075
4. PNP Clearance rush - 500 (optional)
5. Emission testing - 420
6. LTO stencil - 100 (your call how much you will give the guy)
7. LTO Registration - 2530

I hope this guide helps.

ilan araw natapos to sir?

markus said...


That was done by my friend in just one day, basta alam ang steps na gagawin kakayanin syang matapos agad. Magpapatagal lang talaga yung pagbabayad sa Landbank and paghahanap ng location ng LTO/Camp Karingal.

Hi. What if the transfer of ownership is between a father and a son? Are there steps in these procedure that will be overriden?

markus said...

For transfer of ownership between father/son (or relatives by affinity/consanguinity), the same set of procedures will still apply. It won't matter to LTO or PNP nonetheless as long as the Deed of Sale is duly notarized. I'm yet to hear about another set of specialized procedure for transferring ownership between father and son.

Perhaps you're wondering if the car was not bought, or if there was no money involved.

As I see it, the Deed of Sale is used as a legal instrument to affirm the change of ownership of the vehicle. I can't really say if having another form to execute the transfer of ownership (such as deed of donation) can be used in lieu of the deed of sale (since there might be instances where the vehicle to be registered was not really sold).

For simplicity, you might just have a notarized deed of sale and have an arbitrary but realistic amount for valuation of the car. As an added info, some notary public base their fee according to the value of the vehicle specified in the deed of sale.

This is only my personal opinion. To be sure, you might want to ask someone from PNP Camp Caringal directly to clarify this matter.

May Official Receipt po ba yung 2,350?

markus said...

Yes. Yun na yung nakalagay sa OR from LTO.

Anonymous said...

papaano naman yung sa motor?
ganito din po ba?

markus said...

Siguro halos same steps lang, mag iiba lang ang cost. Importante hawak mo yung deed of sale at photocopy ng ID ng seller

Philippe Dela Cruz said...

Thank you for this guide Sir. Question lang po, kailangan po ba Original yung C.R. (Cert. of Registration)? Yung nasa akin kasi photocopy lang po.

Pero yung O.R. po original naman.

markus said...

Opo, hinahanap po ang original na Certificate of Registration. Kung nawala nyo po ang original, pwede naman ulit mag request ng copy ng C.R.

Just wondering why they need photocopies of the id of the buyer and seller. The fact that the deed of sale was notarized, then it's already binding. did they require this to create road blocks and hence, more opportunities for "fixers"? When transferring ownership of real estate, they don't require id's of buyer and seller. We have notary public, to attest to the identity of the buying and selling parties.

markus said...

Well, you may say that the requirement was added for the sake of unnecessary "roadblocks" for fixers, but as I've observed, one may have a document notarized without having to appear before the notary public, so it's kind of defeating the purpose. Photocopies of ID as proof of identity in this case is somehow a necessary inconvenience.

Fantastic! If the date the blog was created was right, it's really nice to see that you still reply to comments even after a year. Great work men. This really helps!

markus said...

I'm glad you find this bit of information helpful. I had a hard time myself looking for instructions pertaining to vehicle transfer a few years back, so I decided to post one. Though the price seems outdated, the procedure remains the same. Thanks!

what's the best time to transfer ownership? Is it after the car's due registration or before?

Pano pag nawala yung copy of registered owners id pero nasakin orig or/cr, notarized deed of sale and release of chattel/mortgage

markus said...

Kung saan po yung pinakamalapit na location ng PNP-TMG office, pwede kayong makakuha ng clearance.

markus said...

Yes po, required pong dalhin ang kahit anong sasakyan para sa clearance. Yung TMG office dati nasa loob ng compound ng Pasig city hall kaso lumipat na ata.

markus said...

The best time to transfer motor vehicle ownership is before the due date of the car's registration (which depends on the last digit in the plate number). I did it a month before, in my case.

markus said...

Hindi ko lang sigurado kung pupuwede na walang ID, pero mukhang mahigpit sila sa gantong bagay. Kung hindi na talaga makakuha ng copy sa original owner, mas makabubuting tumawag sa PNP-TMG office.

brod nakabili po ako ng 2nd hand car from a dealer sa makati. i am from pampanga. Transfer of ownership daw sa sa LTO la loma quezon city. i gave the dealer a certain amount. Sila na daw transfer nun sa name ko. Pwede ba ung ganun? 6 working days na wala pa news kung na transfer na. pwede ko ba i follow up un sa LTO La Loma. Thx bro

markus said...

Medyo mahirap kasi makipag deal kapag hindi mo kakilala talaga, pero ang balita ko sa LTO lately eh medyo matagal nga raw ang proseso ngayon.

Mas makabubuti siguro na kontakin mo muna yung dealer para makahingi ka ng update. Baka ipinalalakad lang nila yung transfer mo ng papeles para sa kotse.

Useful info (Thank you sa nag post ng blog sir MARKUS). Been to Camp Karingal while ago. Dumating ako mga 11am natapos ako mga 2:30 ata un. Pina rush ko na din dahil ayaw ko ng bumalik pa doon (I'm from Makati btw).

Payment made:
a. 300 - Landbank
(Dumating ako 11:30am, natapos ako 12:30pm, pang #114 ako sa pila, #54 ata yung number pag dating ko that time)

b. 500 - Rush Processing
**kaka renew lang ng car so wala ng TPL etc.

FYI to everyone baka makatulong.

Anonymous said...

Hi, the CR has no signature of previous owner. Can it be processed?
Thanks.

Anonymous said...

Sir KLozada, ask ko lang po. Magkano inabot ang police clearance plus yong mga fees for the transfer of ownership? (Di kasama Renewal of Registration in your case which would be also my situation kasi kakarenew lang din 3 months ago). TIA :-)

Anonymous said...

Sir what if i only have a copy of latest OR but i have the orginal CR, pwede po ba yun?

Anonymous said...

Sir Markus, anong account number ng PNP saka anong account name ang ilalagay sa Deposit Slip sa Land Bank? Magbabayad na lang kasi agad ako before pumunta sa Camp Karingal. thanks - Rodel

I would just like to share my experience s clearance. Everything you guys said ginawa ko... meron lng additional step... dun s macro etching, after nila kunin ung stencil, binabakbak nila ung paint s chassis number to check kung tampered yung chassis number... tapos s case ko, Thursday, Nov 21 ko makukuha clearance ko... ndi ko n pina rush kse taga QC lng rin nmn ako... ang magiging challenge lng sakin e ung transfer of ownership mismo s LTO... kse ung oto ko, originally registered s LTO Muntinlupa... kaya lagare ako QC to Muntinlupa and vice versa...

Yup, sa macro-etching me instances na kelangang bakbakin yung old paint para ma-etch properly yung chassis number. Hindi kasi readable minsan yung numbers pag napatungan na ng paint.

Patrick Ragamat said...

Sir, ask ko lang po pano if ever nakarehistro na yung car tapos papatransfer of ownership mo po? Paano po ba mangyayari dun? Sa CR mo nakapangalan na sayo tapos sa OR is yung sellers name pa din? Is there any way na mapalitan din yung name na nandun sa OR? Thanks in advance po

Anonymous said...

Sana may makasagot po nito. Yung nabili ko din na car registered na. Paano po pag ganun. 1 question pa, kung saan nakaregister ung car dun din ba dapat magpachange ownership? Thanks!

Anonymous said...

This is really helpful. But how about for this scenario?

May nabili akong oto sa banko. Nahatak ng banko at ako ang nakabili. Yung CR may notation pa na "encumbered", pero hindi na problema yun kasi nakuha ko na Cancellation of Chattel Mortgage sa RD. Mayroon na rin akong Absolute Deed of Sale between me and the bank. Pagkatapos ko ba mapa un-encumber yung CR (which is still under the name of first owner), do I still need to go to PNP for the clearance? Or pwede ng diretso transfer ownership na kasi sa banko ko naman nabili yung oto?

Relztiv Avs said...

So you have to go back to the original LTO branch where the car was first registered? Or yung sa latest registration lang? Tinignan ko sa LTO website about Transfer of Ownership of Private MVs/MCs, ang nakalagay any branch daw eh.

On my case, I would need to go Olongapo kasi dun sya una na rehistro..SMH.

Can someone please reply and confirm? Thank you

Hi, need ba na may signature ng previous owner ung CR? Pag hindi ba napirmahan, hindi pwede maprocess ung transfer ng name?
