The Department of Transportation (DOTr) said it will clear its 2017 license plate backlog by November this year as license plates are now being manufactured in the country.

In an interview with One News, Transportation Secretary Arthur P. Tugade said the department is targeting to clear the backlog on issuing vehicle license plates for 2017 by November.

Ang target niyan by November of this year, lahat noong 2017. ‘Yung 2018, [we’re] looking forward na,” Mr. Tugade said in The Chiefs program.

(We target to finish the backlog by November this year the license plates in 2017. For 2018, we’re looking forward to it.)

He added that this will be done as the plates are now manufactured locally, adding that they have already produced 380,000 pairs of plates since local production started. — Karl Angelo N. Vidal
