DRIVER'S LICENSE ONE-STOP SHOPS NOW OPEN

Quezon City, May 3, 2003 -- Transportation Secretary Leandro Mendoza yesterday said that the public can now be served better with the opening of the Land Transportation Office's One-Stop-Shop at the LTO Central Office in East avenue, Quezon City

Citing report from LTO Chief Assistant Secretary Roberto Lastimoso, Mendoza said the One-Stop-Shop will allow the public to renew their driver's license without having to line up or go to the LTO district office.

"With the One-Stop-Shop, people can renew their driver's license for only 30 minutes compared to the usual three to six months it used to take," Mendoza said.

He said the One-Stop-Shop aims to provide convenience and accessibility to the people as part of the Arroyo administration's effort to improve government's service.

The LTO One-Stop-Shop was launched in partnership with Stradcom Corporation, the proponent for the LTO-Information Technology (LTO-IT) Project, and AMPI-Mega Data Corporation.

Last year, the LTO opened its first One-Stop-Shop at the SM City Pampanga in San Fernando, Pampanga.

Mendoza noted that the LTO One-Stop-Shop in Pampanga, allows the public near the area, especially those living in the province, to renew their driver's license, get student permit, and renew motor vehicle registration without having to line up or go to the LTO office, adding that it is open even on weekends.

"The opening of LTO One-Stop-Shops in shopping malls will provide more accessibility and convenience to the public," he added.

The LTO Information Techno-logy (LTO-IT) project will intercon-nect about 250 LTO offices nationwide, automate and integrate its business processes, and enable online transaction processing.

Lastimoso said that more and more one-stop-shops will be established nationwide in the near future. (Malaya)
