Lapu-Lapu City Licensing Center

The LTO Lapu-Lapu City Licensing Center is an off-site printing office managed by the LTO at the Island Central Mall. The offsite printing office is equipped with three working stations that can print 200 license cards for the regular lane and 100 cards for the priority lane or for persons with disability (PWDs), pregnant, and senior citizens. It was launched in hopes of catching up with the backlog license cards with 5-year validity or Official Receipts (OR) issued from November 2, 2016 onwards and transacted within Central Visayas only.

Lapu-Lapu City District Office

Originally an LTO extension Office, the Lapu-Lapu City District Office in Brgy. Pajo, Lapu-Lapu City became such thanks to Republic Act No. 11105, otherwise known as “An act converting the Land Transportation Office (LTO) extension office located in Lapu-Lapu City, Province of Cebu, into a regular LTO district office and appropriating funds therefor.”

Where is Lapu-Lapu

Lapu-Lapu City is one of the cities that make up Metro Cebu, though it is considered administratively independent from the province of Cebu. Formerly known as Opon, the City of Lapu-Lapu has been renamed as such to honor the Philippine hero, Lapu-lapu, who drove away and killed the Portuguese navigator and explorer, Ferdinand Magellan. 

Lapu-Lapu City is a first-class highly urbanized city housing over 490,000 people in 30 barangays. It is a well-known spot for coconut-growing and fishing, and it houses the country’s second busiest international airport, the Mactan-Cebu International Airport. 

Lapu-Lapu City occupies the northwestern Mactan Island, on a narrow channel of Bohol opposite Cebu City. It is bounded on the north by the main island of Cebu. To its west, Lapu-Lapu City is bordered by Cebu City and the Mactan Channel. The Camotes Sea borders the eastern side of the city while the south is bounded by the town of Cordova. While it mainly occupies Mactan Island, a few kilometers off the main island of Cebu, Lapu-Lapu City’s territory extends to some of the barangays on the Olango Island Group. The city itself is also linked to Mandaue in mainland Cebu by the Mactan-Mandaue Bridge and Marcelo Fernan Bridges.
