We’ve posted this photo on our Facebook Page asking for public opinion, and it has gone VIRAL, with a slew of negative comments and protests.

With all the commotion going on, a member of the AE92.ph group says he has a friend from the Legal Section of LTO, who has clarified the issue. It seems it was an issue of semantics:
– Car enthusiasts’ definition of “modification:” body kits, spoilers, lowered/lifted suspension, mag wheels, high performance engines, etc.
– LTO’s definition of “modification:” complete change of body style e.g. closed van into passenger type, 2 door sedan into 4 door sedan, dropside truck into passenger bus, etc. hence the need for an engineer’s approval.

According to the post, if you set up your ride, in LTO’s eyes, you simply did a “parts upgrade.”

Of course, we shouldn’t take this as an official announcement, so take it with a grain of salt. Read through it, and let us know what you think in the comments.

    Another way of corruption…

  5. Dapat may SEMA din sa Pilipinas!!!!!

  6. With the exception of HIDs, modifications stated on the article do not seem to be geared toward private passenger cars, if you read through it.

    Body type change, overhangs, axle conversions…do you really do this to your car?

  7. Rhainer Bucayan via Facebook says:

    stupid

  8. Windz Gariando via Facebook says:

    Puro pagkakakitaan nanaman iniisip niyo. E kung hingan niyo rin kaya ng permit yung mga taong gustong pumorma sa pananamit? Pati na rin yung nagpapakulay ng buhok, nagpapalagay ng braces sa ipin, yung nagpapa-plastic surgery. Isama niyo rin diyan yung mga nagpapaganda ng bahay, pati yung mga malls na naglalagay ng mga dekorasyon.
    Mga buwaya talaga kayo!
    Ang daming dapat ayuain, gusto niyo makaisip kayo ng batas na napakadaling ipatupad at dagdag kita nanaman sa inyo.

    WALANG BASAGAN NG TRIP!

  10. Dickenson Dy via Facebook says:

    LTO pls clarify as to WHAT KIND OF MODIFICATIONS ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT… Paki-explain po ng mabuti para maliwanagan ang nakararami…. Give an example of modifications na kailangan ng permit…kasama ba dun mga naka “lift” na 4×4 trucks? Big wheels? HID’s? LED bars? Mga naka full wrap na cars? Pls. Specify…

  11. As long as it’s a fast transaction, I wouldn’t mind.

  12. You guys are actually drawing flak for something you’re not guilty of, and hence are making the situation worse.

  13. Dapat magsama sama ang mga taong mahihilig sa mag pa porma o magpaganda ng sasakyan tapos magtayo ng isang organization na ma legalize ang mga car accessories sa mga after market accessories sa mga sasakyan!!!! Wala nanaman magawa ang mga taong gobyerno ng Pilipinas!!!! Hobby ito mga taong mahihilig sa sasakyan!

  14. Use yer Imagination basta alam nyo na yon sabi ng LTO! Eeeeehehehehehe! Basta kukuha kayo ng apermit sa LTO! Tapos! At ito ay nasa BATAS! Eeeeeeehehehehehe!!!

  15. Anyway sa tingin ko! Habang pinapaypayan naten ang baga sa issue patungkol dito ay lalo lang po itong mag lalagablab at di ito mamamatay bagkus lalo lalaki ang apoy patungkol sa usaping ito! Malay naten pina sasakay lang nila tayo!!! Inaazar mnga ka motorista!!! Bantayan na lang po naten ang mnga mangyayare sa mga usaping ito! Makiramdam ika nga!!!

  16. Arvin Chel Ilagan via Facebook says:

  19. ano ba yan, magkapera lang kayo ano ano iniimbento nyong batas..patanggal nyo na lang kasi lahat ng kotse..kakandahirap pa kayo..

  20. Hehehe nice one Mr Jheff Santos!!!

  21. Theomar Angelo Alvarado via Facebook says:

    I would rather have them inspecting all cars like the MoTs in the UK and the Shaken in Japan than this.

    Panigurado luwag ng traffic nun

  22. Juan Peralta via Facebook says:

    Nung nagpaulan ng katangahan. Sinalo nya lahat.

  23. Mykie Padua via Facebook says:

    Guys relax lang po tayo… wag masyado magpadala sa emotion at walang mangyayari pag nagpadalusdalos tayo… :)

    I think what thay mean about modifications on yout vehicle is the alteration on the physical structure… for example kotse na ginawang pick-up, originally hard top ginawang top down yung mga ganun ba… 4door ginawang 2door… and so on… yun ang pagkakaintindi ko sa modification na term na ginamit ng LTO… hindi yung modification ng makina and stuff na alam natin… the thing is LTO should educate first the public on what they want to happen before they implement this as a law… also about the HID matagal ng pinag babawal ang HID sa mga hindi talaga dapat nakaHID na kotse diba unless magpaprojector lights yung kotse and there is this level of HID lang na pwede hanggang 4300 Kelvin lang if i’m not mistaken… please correct me if i’m wrong sa mga sinabi ko kasi yun ang pagkakaintindi ko dito… thank you…

    Suggestion ko LTO meet-up muna with the representatives of the car industry and work up something… ;)

  24. Russel Caligynephobia via Facebook says:

    This is not new from other country, expect it to be here soon. How they will classify (Engine,suspension,body) and implement it is the other question. This mean no more Pang bulag beams,fart exhaust, putol spring, duck tape ram intake, carinderia wings.

  25. Christian Lenard Basilio Que via Facebook says:

    KaGung-gongan na panukala yan.. mag-isip nga kayo mabuti mga taga LTO, yung ipanakula nyo yung makakatulong sa sambayanan hindi yung makakaperwisyo, namodify lang violation na kahit ba sa simpleng takip sa plaka para maprotektahan ito eh kaso na kagad..

  26. Paolo Edward Garcia via Facebook says:

    Bullshit! Change of rimz size? o’cmon! Muffler? UROR!

  27. Baka pati pagpalit na ng mags eh kelangang ng permit :D kalokohan

  28. AJ Racing Jon Llamanzares Jm Singson Esmael Junior Ryan Patrick Constantino Volk Rays

  29. Guys please click the link to read the rest of the article. It is a response to what is on the Picture, from an LTO insider (as per the post).

  30. pera-pera lang yan. naghahanap sila ng bagong pagkakakitaan.

  31. Allan Alquiza via Facebook says:

    Bull shit yan… ehhh di mas claro and detailed yun regulation. ..

  32. Onli in d philippines san kp.kya d umunlad tong bayan natin sobrang matatalino ang nkaupo pag tripan b naman ng LTO mga modified vehicles ano kya ang sunod ang gagaling nyo

  33. Stupidity,walang magawa sa buhay,masabi lang na may ipinasang batas.

  34. Tindi nyo basta pagkakaperahan mabilis kayo gumawa ng paraan… pero pag release ng plate number sobra bagal nyo

  35. E ung kuliglig ginawang bigbike.

  36. Chris Benengeli via Facebook says:

    potangna nyo LTO!!!!! naka HID pa naman ako

  37. Gus Ang via Facebook says:

    I’m down with this, at least I don’t have to see anymore rice burners my neighbor makes e.g. Making an accord into a Benz s class

  38. Permit?? May alam ka naman kaya sa auto?? Besides, sino ba gumagastos?? Ba’t kailangan ko ipaalam sayo kung saan ko ilalaan budget ko??
    Ngayon naniniwala na akong mahirap talaga kumita ng legal, lahat ng pwedeng pagkakitaan nalang, nagbabayad ka na nga ng ITR, may bayad ka pa sa sedula, nagbabayad ka na ng rehistro, haist… Isama mo pa ang pangigipit ng ilang enforcers para mapilitan kang maglagay. Ngayon naman permit, bigay nyo kaya ng libre yan??
    God Bless Pilipinas sa mga ganung klaseng tao sa pwesto??

    Oh sige nga, paano mo i-classify ang Onwer type jeep, Passenger Jeep, Tricycle, kuliglig, pedicaps & etc.? Lahat yan substandard, hindi pa mods yan, assembled palang laglag na sa quality??

  39. We already have a law here in New Zealand regarding modified cars ..if you do it right n safely ..it shouldn’t be a problem passing it …

  40. Glenn Derrick Vinluan via Facebook says:

    Thats their way of milking more money from the public,

  41. Lou says:

    Well, that, I would say is a sigh of relief. But all the more the LTO should clarify the term “modification” of a vehicle so as not to greatly confuse car enthusiast, including me. :)

  42. iba na kasi pag nasa daan na. mahirap makipag talo…sa kanila.

  43. Raymond Uy via Facebook says:

    How about the last part of the article about HID? ibig sabihin almost all the new model cars have HID as their stock lights so may violation na din ung mga car manufacturers…..?

  44. Hehehe! Kawawang mnga pribadong mnga motorista! Biruin nyo mnga ka motorista! Pinag hihirapan naten at pinag tyatyagaan naten kitain sa marangal at legal na paraan ang ginagastos natin sa ating mnga pribadong sasakyan! At ganoganon lang napag isipan lang nilang gumawa ng at mag panukala ng batas na mapapagka kitaan lang nila at wala namang solido at malinaw na basihan at explinasyon kung bakit nila ito biglang ipag babawal! Samantalang itoy pribado! Sangayon naman ang publiko kung ito ay naayon sa kaligtasan ng mnga pribado at pang publikong motorista! Pero kung ito ay basta lang napag isipan! At di naman masusing napag aralan at wala namang solidong batayan! Ano ang dahilan kung bakit pa ito isasabatas?
