Please implement disciplinary action to arrogant jeepney driver plate TVY Blumentrit, manila who were smoking while driving.. Currently Residing po ako sa UAE. Pwede po ba ako mag apply ng license sa pinas by just showing my License Here?
Thank YOu Very Much. Is it true that a driver with an expired license driving a vehicle with an expired registration can still continue to drive for as long as hindi sya nahuli ng pulis? Or pwedeng i-report ang mga ganito para turuan nyo ng leksyon. Email me where I can report this person. He gets away from the cops for traffic violations by showing the old WPD ID of his deceased ex-retired cop father. I can give you the details of his exact whereabouts.
To LTO hi ask k lng kung possible bng marenew un liscence k kc expired po siya ng more tha 2yrs whats the procedure and may penalty po bng babayadan. I think they are fixers!! They are wearing polo shirt in different color,sometimes yellow,green and pink uniform na may tatak na aide sa likod.. Are they allowed inside LTO? Kindly check on someone a fixer obviously who claims to be working for an association of fixers?!? Take action for once!
Ang totoong site ng LTO e lagi down kaya dapat dapat sila ang tanungan nyo mismo pag nag-up na uli website nila. For blogging lang eto kaya walang wenta na magreklamo kayo o magsabi ng mga hinaing nyo.
Meron pa isa nagsasabi K taxes nya, at yung isa nagpost pa ng plate number ng sasakyan na nirereklamo nya at dapat daw aksyunan dito sa site na ito. Duh magbasa naman kayo ……. Yung owner ng blog e mautak lang na ginamit yung LTOPhilippines bilang website name nya… kasi ang isa sa purpose naman nya bukod sa makatulong e maredirect yung web trapik sa site nya pag nag-Google ka about LTO.
Marketing ploy yun pero helpful at informative naman yung site na ito kaya okay lang din. It will also expire this January I would greatly appreciate your reply. Nag rerenew po ako ng driving license non-prof to prof which is expired for 9 years.. Here is the Plate number RO. The purpose of this is for us to verify if it is not illegal. Kasi ang father ko po ang nag papaverify kasi itong nasabing motorcycle na ito ay ibinibenta sa aking papa kaya nais lamang po namin na malaman kung hindi ito illegal.
I hope that we will have a chance to know all about this motorcycle. Thank You Very much. Kung nakuhanan ka ng lisensiya pero hindi mo kayang puntahan ang redemption center, puwede bang magpakuha sa iba kung magpadala ng valid ID at authorization letter? How can I confirm that my Motorcycle is truly registered and that the motorcycle dealer is not fooling me around?? I am finding the LTO website inaccesible. I am trying to locate technical regulations regarding automotive vehicles and was wondering if someone would be able to help me?
Hi lto philippines ask ko lng. Nagparenew ako rehistro ng oto ko. Then ndi pa pwede magparehistro kasi ndi raw inencode ung sticker number ng valenzuela lto branch. So pending ung renewal ko. Sa laloma ako ngaun nagpaparenew..
Baka pwede paimbestigahan ung mga ganyang issue.. Ndi nila ginagawa ung dapat nila gawin so kami namn tong naiistorbo. Update ko kau everyday kung ndi pa ok. Just want to inquire why can we renew my license? Is there any way to renew our license specially for OFW like us. Is it possible to convert my vehicle from gas to diesel? Why the local LTO office cannot register my unit? Thanks for your quick reply. Is it possible to register the vehicle from gas to diesel?
Thanks for your reply. I would like to confirm if this car is legal or not. I lost the OR and wasnt able to retrieve my license. What should I do and expect to have my license back? I would like to know the new website of LTO. Dear lto, Gusto ko lng po pa check if ever may alarma yung plat no: Bayani santos po may ari.
Ty ang more power. Pasig lto ung main nya tnx and more power. Is it still valid if I will get a non pro license 1week before expiration of my student license? Do I still have to get one even if im 26 years old? Hoping for you immediate response. However, I am required to submit a letter from the license issuing authority on their letterhead or from your relevant consulate or diplomatic office, confirming my license details, including the first issue date..
How can I obtain it? Thanks for your help! Aba ay nagbigay ng landline number pr matawagan sila, kasi po ay may problema daw system nila kaya di ma process ang license renewal ko ay OFW p naman ako na kailangan maayus ang license ko bago ako bumalik sa ibang bansa.

Thank you very much! I request the help of Philtruck to issue a letter for exception but LTO denied it.

Appreciate your answer thanks! LTO Palawan Info sabi kailangan ko ng drug test then tinuro ako sa mga tao sa labas na nakatambay tapos nagfill-up ako then after nun pumunta kami sa drug test clinic tapos iniwanan na ako pagka-test sa akin tanong ko kung magkano sabi … for drugtest and for medical… sabi ko wala akong dinaanan na medical hindi nga ako na BP nila.
Ang ganda ng naka paskil sa Bulletin board na mabilis ang proseso at aabutin lamang ng less than an hour….. Sabagay medyo malapit na rin sa katotohanan….. Inabot lang naman ako ng almost 6 hours bago ko finally nakuha ang Temporary License…. Sira daw kasi ang Laminator nila kaya mga a month pa daw bago magawa……Sayang na naman ang isang araw na mawawala at ang gasolina para sadyain ulit sila…..
Wala bang pera ang LTO para makabili ng ganung equipment o mapaayos man lang sana agad pag na down ito….. Paki silip nyo itong branch nyo…..
Sana magbago na kayo ng sistema nyo….. Query lang po ito. May red plate vehicle po kasing nakapark sa street namin na lagpas isang linggo na.
Nag-aalala lang po ako at baka carnapped or ma-carnap kung magtatagal pa, kasi nakapark lang sa tapat ng vacant lot. Pa-check na lang po. Jeffry Remigio po name co. I think you should wonder now and that your suspiscion would be right since no reply has been made…even this electronic system is just a show or cover ups…. I just want to inquire regarding the procedure on how to obtain a new license id because i lost mine 4 yrs.
Since it passed 4 yrs. I was not able to file for a replacement and also not able to renew it what is the best way for me to do and how much will it cost me for the replacement. Thank you very much and more power. I just want to inquire lang sana if you need a certificate from your Regional Office where you first got your Driving License , do you have to travel all the way to Manila to the Head Office for that?
Bakit kelangan ko pa bumyahe sa Manila when I got my License in Mindanao? I just need the Licensing Department Head to give me a Certificate kung kelan nila ako first nabigyan ng Licensya kasi hindi yan sinusulat sa License Card natin kung kelan tayo first nagkaroon ng licensya. Pangalawa, Kelangan ko lang na e-certify ako na mabuti akong driver at wala pa akong infraction ever. Yun lang po, simple lang. Pero I have to travel for that to Manila?
How cool is that! Bakit ganito parin ang system ng LTO kala ko updated na bulok parin pala ….. I am Cristilito P. I have an expired professional drivers license. I was not able to renew this on my birth date in due to the fact that I left to the US in I got my Hawaii Drivers License with date of expiration in Now, I am in the Philippines and will stay here longer.
Leyte that I need to attend a seminar as per requirement by the rules of LTO. Again, I will attend the seminar required but I am questioning the rationale why I need to attend the seminar again.
Somebody should evaluate the necessity to attend the seminar. I would like to highlight the attitude of Asst. He should not scold me. I am a taxpayer and I deserve a good treatment.
The roof will be thatch from the Nipa palm. We paid P per panels of thatch in In we re-roofed the bahay kubo paying P per Nipa thatch being laid. It is tied on to the roof structure with thin nylon rope. A needle is used for threading the string through the panels of nipa. This needle is made of scrap 16 gauge galvanized wire. The nipa panels are made by bending leaves of the nipa palm around a thin bamboo rib. The nylon thread is push through the nipa, wrapped around the bamboo rib and then secured to the bamboo slats and poles making up the roof.
The freshly laid nipa can be damaged by high winds which can catch and break the fronds. Our bahay kubo will be sheathed in tad tad. Tad tad which means chop-chop in Tagalog and Ilonggo is bamboo which is unrolled into a flat panel using a bolo to make many cuts in the bamboo until it lies flat. Inside the bahay kubo. This is about the normal lifespan for a nipa roof. While the roof looks like it would be very leaky, it really is not.
It is being replaced now March so the bahay kubo will be ready for the rainy season. Just as with any leaking roof, only a percentage of the old shingles are unsalvageable.
The durability and weather tightness of a nipa or just about any other type of roof depends on the overlap and exposure of the courses of nipa. Sunset light on bahay kubo. As is traditional, the globe is the bottom of a plastic bottle, in this case a water bottle.
Vinegar bottles are also popular. Next steps will be adding a porch railing and bamboo strips to hold down the nipa roof. The windows set high on the walls and the wide roof overhang keep the sun out of the house during the day, even though there is no trees or shade.
The very open breezy site also helps. The bananas have grown! Grass grows on the sandy fill. The bahay kubo was home to our construction workers for over nine months. The following disadvantges I can see are: Were you required to secure a building permit for this bahay kubo project?
We are planning to build one as well. Hi Bob and Carol, Enjoyed the very informative blogs. We are in the middle of our bahay Kubo project.
We planned to have the Kubo as our living room and bedrooms but kitchen and bathroom with modern convinience. It is a weekend home for 4 generations family members my mom who is turning 94 this year and the youngest member who is a month old.. My mom is looking forward to it. So glad to know we are not the only ones interested to use and go build traditional bahay Kubo. A big wet season and a leaky roof will quickly rot the seats and flooring as they become saturated. Another thing worth exploring is a process to extend the lacquer life.
Wherever the sun hits from early morning to late evening will flake off. Might be worth experimenting with tung oil coats with some sort of sun block between each coats. I know guys in the antique restoration game that protect French polish with tung oil. Sto nino village muntinlupa city or or cp marvie. I will be moving to the Philippines next year to start up my own business there.
I have the fortunate opportunity to use a friends beach front real estate. Could you give me a quoit on a 2 story two bedroom building pls. Do you have some brocure I could look at or are they made to suit?
What are your prices? Sorry, we are just bloggers, not builders. We shared our experience in the article you read. Hi There Dont know if u still look but my wife and I just bought a block of land and yr blog is costing me hours per day reading. Love it and thanks Richard. I knew I wanted a Bahay Kubo and the price was what we could afford without going into debt. We were able to purchase the lot at a great price and We decided to build a two story Bahay Kubo in the mountains of Antipolo, Rizal.
My wife and I are foreigners but I myself am a Phil-am. I had some questions i would like to ask you about how you deal with the preserving of your bamboo house. Is there anything you could recommend in terms of prolonging the longevity of your Kubo. Any tips would be wonderful and if you reply I could snap a pic or two to show you what a crazy 33 year old was able to dream up and build. Here in the Philippines I wanted to build my fantasy and with bleeding hands and hard work I was able to build my home, mortgage free and own the land.
I grew up living in a bahay kubo in the southern parts of Cebu, lasted all the way until I left home to go to college. My parents demolished that house quite some time ago and replaced it with a concrete one, but I have many fond memories of our old nipa house. When I was about 9 or 10 years old mids , my old man wanted to replace our nipa panels with new ones. To save on cost, we worked on it ourselves, with me as his assistant.
Thanks for positive feedback and thanks again for being the first person to donate to our GoPro fundraiser! Dan, I checked with the Canadian government service center a couple weeks ago to see if my Canada Pension Plan Disability benefits are payable to me if I move to the Philippines. They told me they are, and they also told me that when I turn 65 my Old Age Security benefits are also payable to me in the Philippines. At 65 my disability pension payments convert to regular retirement pension benefits, which I can also receive directly in a Philippine bank along with my OAS.
Your Canada medical insurance plan is almost certainly from a provincial government, not the federal government, and from what I can tell, all Canadian provinces have that 6 month limit for coverage when out of the country. If I move, I intend to purchase the best medical insurance I can get in the Philippines. I finally read all of those posts. Looks like we can easily get insurance.
We are still in the planning stage, but we are getting our ducks in a row. Take care and be safe. Keep up the great work! My wife soon to draw her SSI.
Never been to the P. I know what your saying about the climate there in the P. Congrats to you both on your engagement too!
Keep eating the 3 times daily rice Ned!! Thanks Benjamin and apologies for late reply. Yeah, the military courtesy SRRV is the best deal going, without a doubt. Just make sure to visit the Philippines first — I would be remiss not to mention that again. And I am working on the rice — still not a big fan and it tends to go right to my hips. I have been married to my Philippina wife since July 28 I spent 9 no.
There from Aug 29 to Sept 23 Late reply, and I can only assume that you are now in the Philippines. As to your question, your options are only limited by your income, which seems to be pretty fixed. I know of some guys that spend half the year in the Philippines and half the year in the home countries with their Filipina spouses , but that actually costs a good amount of money — not to mention flight costs every six months.
I would simply take it slow, be frugal and give it some thought: Hi there I was wondering if it is possible could I ask for a contact details to talk to you a little but just if you could spare the time please. You can contact us at myphilippinedreams gmail. Nice videos, great information. I have been checking back and forth between Thailand and the Philippines.
Both offer great value for the money. I have another 5 years to work here in Law-Enforcement and will start getting my retirement at 55 until Social Security kicks in at I guess that can provide a comfortable living there, right?
How is the medical care there though? You will probably be able to sock away or invest most of that. My experiences with medical care here have been very positive. It might not be first world quality everywhere, but the medical centers in the larger cities are pretty durn good.
Could you please make some inquires at the LTO and provide further information on this subject as I believe it could have quite an impact on anyone applying for a new license.
LTO here says it is OK. It is — however — the law for NEW Philippines license issuances.
