Steadfast MVIC opens in Manila

As per 2020 Road Crash Statistics in Metro Manila, thousands of vehicular accidents occur in the Philippines each year, with around 31,811 recorded until August of 2020 in NCR alone. The privilege to drive and own a vehicle entail a list of responsibilities and one of which is ensuring that it is roadworthy, to potentially save lives.

Steadfast MVIC officially opened on June 23 to serve everyone for their vehicle inspection needs. It was graced by Atty. Roque Versoza, Assistant Regional Director of LTO NCR West and Ms. Marinette Abarico, District Office Head of LTO Makati. This newly opened Motor Vehicle Inspection Center (MVIC) is one of the accredited MVICs in the Philippines—both by Land Transportation Office (LTO) and the Department of Transportation (DOTr). This facility boasts of equipped employees and is committed to deliver valid and reputable vehicle assessment.

“It is our duty as responsible motorists to prioritize road safety at all times. To ensure that our vehicles pass the standard quality, it is imperative to have it thoroughly and regularly inspected. Steadfast MVIC aims to make MVICs more accessible to our vehicle owners so it is easier for them to maintain the good condition of their automobiles,” says Michelle Cinco, Vice President.

Through MVICs, both private and public vehicles are inspected via automated machines to significantly reduce road accidents caused by faulty automotive components. These centers are in strict compliance with the Motor Vehicle Inspection System (MVIS), the standard method of inspection which is guaranteed systematic and reliable, as the process is carried out through computerization and with limited human intervention.

Steadfast MVIC offers visual inspection and exhaust emission tests that are mandatory for vehicles before they can register at LTO. It also offers over 70 assessments for a hollistic examination, as well as to warrant your vehicle’s roadworthiness and overall safety condition.

Rates are affordable—P600 for light vehicles (car, SUV, jeep, van) and trucks not more than 500 kilograms in weight, while P500 for motorcycles/tricycles/big bikes. All rates are VAT exclusive and LTO registration is excluded from the services of Steadfast MVIC.

Safety should always come first. Drive cautiously and always enjoy relaxing trips. For vehicle assessment requirements, Steadfast MVIC is located at 346 Sta. Clara St., Sta. Ana, Manila.
