lto license plate verification via sms

18 11 2009


Got this via email and I’ve personally tried it… works…


Plate Verification… important when police questions you

Something handy to keep in your phone . . . .

This is information about the REGISTRATION of any of your vehicles, whether it is filed genuinely at any LTO Office or not.

There are CHECKPOINTS nowadays and some unscrupulous policemen will tell you that your CAR REGISTRATION is not duly registered even if you show the OFFICIAL RECEIPT-LTO CAR REGISTRATION. The policeman will tell you that it is either tampered or fake and you have no choice but to deal with the extortion…

On your cellphone text this message:


XXX000 stands for your vehicle’s PLATE NUMBER ( Philippines )


SEND to 2600 and wait for auto-generated reply then save to your phone.

(An amount of P2.50 or P2.00 will be charged when you send to 2600)
A reply message from 2600 will inform you the following about the plate number:

Car Plate:
Date of Last Registered:
LTO Apprehension: if any
LTO Alarm: if any

If there is a problem in CHECKPOINTS, just show this text message to the police officer in charge.

This text message from 2600 is also very important when buying an old and very cheap used car.

This will also be useful when you are following a car with a doubtful car plate no.

And lastly, when you register your car at any LTO Office try to check this out whether your car is genuinely registered or a tampered or fake OR was issued to you by an unscrupulous LTO employee or fixer.

PS.  Save or print this for your reference…  and email this to your friends.

hi alberto,

thank you so much for sharing a very useful tip…. by the way, do you have any idea how we can upload our new license plate if it is not yet uploaded by LTO?

Thanks to this page! It’s very handy and fast reply info ’cause if you really like the car and you have second thoughts of the reliability, you could hand down reservation right then and there because of this. With the generation now that everybody’s carrying a cellphone:)

I really have no idea what the mechanics of this service is aside from verifying the plates versus the actual vehicle. I would suggest you contact LTO directly and ask…

paano po ba e verify yung engine number and chassis number ng kotse using the license plate?

23 02 2014

There’s no current mechanism using SMS that can do what you wish. The only way is to check with the authorities…

And this comment is here why? I am not Ronald Lim and also NOT connected in any way with LTO or any government agency.

Sir ask Ko po kng papano po malaman Kung ang isang green plate na sasakyan ay natransfer na s yellow plate.?
Saan po aq pwede mgverify??

12 03 2014

I would imagine that LTO would be the agency in charge for vehicle plates, and as such, would be the best agency to approach regarding your concern.

1 04 2014

Why don’t you verify directly with the LTO whether the car is registered or not – just to make certain.

18 04 2014

Have you got any tips about setting up a blog? I’m
seriously tired of doing the same kind of thing at the office and desire something new.

I don’t think it works with temp plates…

4 10 2014

meron bang same temporary plate number?

23 01 2015

I don’t think this works anymore with the new plate eg ABC1234. It replies with the plate length is invalid (4-6 characters maximum). Or is there a new number to text the new plate to?
