LTO Eyes ISO Certification?

By next year, Bohol will add to its numerous awards and recognition the honor of having an International Standard Organization (ISO) Compliant Land Transportation Office (LTO) here.

Joel Maloloy-on, LTO-Tagbilaran Acting District Supervisor said the city will be the first among the 17 LTO districts in the whole Central Visayas Region.

The LTO Tagbilaran District passed the initial evaluation for it to be ISO candidate and it receive P1M assistance the other month for its office rehabilitation.

"This will be a legacy I will contribute to the Boholano people and they will be proud of it," Maloloy-on said.

The various activities are now in the final process for a series of evaluation towards ISO Compliance eyed to be completed before the year ends.

LTO-Tagbilaran has posted the record of processing and issuing Student's Drivers Permit in just thirty (30) minutes while processing for New Driver's License only takes about four (4) hours.

Under Maloloy-on, the office also had reduced the activities of alleged "fixers" although some observers say vehicle insurance brokers still persist doing the same modus operandi.

LTO ISO Compliance is a step taken in response to the memorandum of Pres. Arroyo to all heads of LTO and its satellite offices to cut red tape and deliver quality public service, as contained in the issuance of Executive Order No. 605, S. 2007.
