Engine-testing machine in Davao City

A P40-million engine testing center of the Land Transportation Office (LTO) here will be put up before the year ends.

LTO Operations Division Chief Eleanor Calderon said the Motor Vehicle Inspection Center (MVIC), another unit under his office, will be established within SM City complex.

Calderon said the MVIC will serve as stopping point of all motor vehicles, private or public, before their applications are renewed. This features a machine from France that would check the parts of the vehicle as well as its road-worthiness.

"We do check the vehicles. We have a drive testing area but we have it within the compound. We make the most out of our space and put up cones to see the efficiency and skills of the driving applicant. If we have this MVIC probably we could start looking into requesting from the national government to provide us a big area for drive testing," Calderon said.

She said the city alone has almost 300,000 registered motor vehicles to which 90 percent are private vehicles. Fifty percent of the total number of motor vehicles is comprised of motorcycles.

"Registration from the city increases every year to up to 10 to 15 percent from previous years," Calderon said.  - pna
