AS LAND Transportation Office (LTO) 7 aims to bring its services closer to the people, the agency officially launch its “Serbisyong Malasakit On Wheels” on Friday, October 16.
Services such as mobile Drivers Education Center (DEC), getting a student permit, renewal of driver's license, renewal of motor vehicle registration, and printing of driver's license card, will now be available nearer to the public as LTO 7 roll-out "Serbisyong Malasakit On Wheels" to Cebu Province.
LTO 7 partnered with Naga City Government to start the roll-out of the upgraded 'LTO 7 On Wheels' where a one-stop-shop of the Agency's services will now be available to more people especially in the far-flung areas that currently don't have their own LTO office.
The agency has started the 3-day mobile DEC last October 14 where 40 Nagahanons were able to avail of an affordable DEC for them to get a student permit.
LTO 7 is also negotiating with other LGUs so that its mobile bus and its services will be available to them soon.
Mobile DEC is the new service of the LTO 7 Serbisyong Malasakit On Wheels program.
LTO 7 Regional Director Victor Emmanuel Caindec said that the nominees of the LGU will be given the chance to enrol under the mobile DEC.
These lucky individuals were picked by the LGU following their social statuses such as those who cannot afford the private driving school and those deserving ones.
A 15-hour Theoretical Driving Course will be given to the said batch.
LTO 7 partners with local government units (LGU) for the possible venue of the training.
"We are now partnering with Cebu Governor Gwen Garcia for us to roll-out the LTO 7 Serbisyong Malasakit On Wheels in Cebu Province," said Caindec.
"This is very timely also since we just launched our DEC, more people can now avail of this training course especially for those who aim in getting a student permit," Caindec added.
After the 3-day training of the mobile DEC, graduates will now be able to get their student permit thru the mobile bus of LTO 7.
Services such as renewal of driver's license, renewal of motor vehicle registration, and printing of driver's license cards will also be available with LTO 7 Serbisyong Malasakit On Wheels in Naga City on October 16 and 19 at Naga City Hall.
"I have to thank Senator Bong Go and President Rodrigo Duterte for the concept of Malasakit because that is what we need now and what people deserve to get, a Malasakit from the government knowing that we are now in a pandemic," said the regional director.
He also encourages LGUs to partner with them so that LTO 7 Serbisyong Malasakit On Wheels will be offered to their place.
"Aside from Senator Bong Go, I would like to extend my gratitude to Secretary Michael Lloyd Dino for allowing us to use Serbisyong Malasakit in an extended form of offering LTO 7 services to a greater audience," said Caindec. (PR)
