License plate dating
Those license plates are under a different supplier and have encountered problems with the Commission on Audit.
Last July 5, 2018, the LTO started releasing the license plates of motor vehicles registered in July 2016.
Dates for the various "ND" registrations are then listed.
The agency added that owners of motor vehicles registered before July 1, 2016 will not be able to claim their seven-digit license plates yet.
Simply enter your 15-digit motor vehicle (MV) number which is located at the top-left portion of your certification of registration.
If your new license plate is available, the website will tell you when and where you can claim it.
Being able to shed light on when a car was registered can be a big help when it comes to dating not only old cars and other vehicles, but also photographs that feature older road-registered vehicles.
A search through this section of the oldclassiccar site should help with researching an older car's history.
