An Appeal To The Government To Take Steps On The Proliferation of Fake Licenses and Car Plates



Acquiring a driver’s license, renewal, replacement for a lost license ID and registration of car plates are officially issued and regulated in a Land Transportation Office. However, I wonder why there are still reports and news on fake distribution of driver’s license and car plates. I accompanied my husband for his driver’s license renewal last year in a nearby LTO satellite branch and I observed upon entering the bureau, not one but two people immediately approached us asking if we would like to avail their service to speed up the release of my husband’s ID. My husband did not give way to the fixers as we are accustomed in transacting only from accredited personnel in any government agency. 



These fixers are a common sight in most government agencies offering services to expedite the process of the document you need for a fee. If they are involved directly or indirectly in the fake plates and license modus operandi, we ordinary citizens will never know. 

It is alarming that there is a possibility of a syndicate presently operating inside or outside the LTO who is behind the manufacture of fake license and plates. Being a car owner we wanted to make sure and secure a legitimate license and car plate. In accordance with the LTO’s rules and requirements in acquiring license and plates and being a concerned citizen I am appealing to our government to take steps on the proliferation of fake licenses and plates to protect innocent citizens who are rightfully doing their duties in abiding the LTO regulations. I request for a more rigid and thorough investigation to identify the group behind the production and distribution of these fake licenses.

We all know that the PNP has already advised the public not to yield to these illegal transactions on acquiring driver’s license yet, an action to get rid and eradicate these fixers loitering in and out of their offices can discourage these scoundrels to further operate. These fixers are not official employees of the agency to handle license transactions and the only reason why they became a norm is due to the red tape in document processing. It is about time for the people to learn and undergo the right process in getting a driver’s license without the illegal aid of these fixers. Implementing a more organized and systematized procedure to speed up the process will eliminate the fixers to exist.   

Lastly, if a set of guidelines on how to differentiate a fake plate or license to a legit one posted in LTO offices and spread it through press release and campaigns, the community will get to be more alert and aware to undergo the proper process in acquiring and securing a legitimate license.

I agree with you. It's scary knowing that it's easy to fake licenses and car plates, so I hope this blog post will reach the appropriate people.

Ang dami tagala nabibiktima ng mga fixers, the government should pay attention for those fixers  to stop this kind of syndicate.

Jm Mendoza said...

Fixers must be stopped. I wish the government will do something against fixers. *wishful thinking*

Lots of things needed to be done and they all start on a smaller scale. Kick the fixers out of the branches as I am sure, the officials in every branch are aware of them. Start in a single step and all else will follow.

It is better to go through the regular process when it comes to license renewal so to avoid being linked to potential syndicates.

start from the bottom going up, without these fixers the illegal operation will surely be crippled

joysflair said...

it is the government's duty to protect the citizen's welfare against illegimate dispersal of fake plates and licenses, they are already acting on the matter but it would be better if a massive drive will be done

joysflair said...

hindi man lahat ng fixers e ginagamit ng sindikato pero damay na rin sila, unang una hindi naman dapat sila pinababayaan sa gawain nila :(

joysflair said...

yes, it's really scary, honestly I myself do not know how to differentiate a legit plate or license to the fake one. 

joysflair said...

i agree

EihdraG said...

ahahha true and then pag nawala ung, hahanap na naman ng ibang pagkakadugasan este pagkakakitaan lol

Fixers and red tape - I think they are sadly correlated. Here's hoping the problems gets sorted.

imriz said...

yup, i can attest to those fixers. its the same here in our place. lalapitan ka, akala mo super entertain sila ng clients nun pala di nman sila empleyado ng lto, and yet, the staff are just ignoring them, parang true naman na katrabaho nila...hays hanggat ganyang ang ating sistema...ang vision ni pnoy...LALANGOY ^_^

It's amazing how this has gone so long out intthe open and nothing has been really done about it. Just take a walk around the malls and you'll find kiosks displaying fake plates as part of the things that they are selling.

Josie said...

the authorities should be vigilant if they really want to stop this thing and never looked the other way when it's happening right under their nose ..

joysflair said...

the red tape dilemma has been here in our country for centuries already, dapat isa yan sa ituwid ang daan 

joysflair said...

that's it i wonder why they have been ignored, parang wala lang, are the staffs getting commission from them?? 

joysflair said...

oh really? i have not seen one yet, i seldom get out that's why hehe

joysflair said...

so we need to push them hard, yet we need to cooperate too

jared's mum said...

i guess the government also has to implement stricter rules + punishment to discourage these fixers. one good solution i can think of is to do away with bureaucracy since this is what really makes lining up for license application such a pain.

No to RED TAPE!!!!

Pepper Tan said...

There are some things which- sadly- never change, I guess.  I think I have lost all faith in the Philippine government, I must admit.  It will take a miracle to restore my faith in the system.

Check those stalls that sell those stickers that will be printed while you wait. Some of them have fake license plates on display, both the ones we use here and Euro plates. ;)

Aeirin said...

hopefully, tutukan talaga ng government ito. they should be stricter sa process ng pagkuha ng license and they should have a special/security feature sa license card para hindi napepeke...

Marie said...

No trolls would survive if no one feeds them, no chismis would get out of hand if no one blew them out of proportion, no fixers will be loitering if individuals have discipline and morality...sabi nga ni gordon, sa sarili nagsisimula ang pagbabago. Kainis ang ugaling ito ng Pinoy! Gusto shortcut susme!
