LTO Region 4A – CALABARZON Region 

The Land Transportation Office (LTO) Region 4A (CALABARZON Region) is one of the thirteen (13) regional divisions of the agency. Like the LTO Central Office, the LTO Region 4A regional office was created to manage and oversee the various LTO agencies under its jurisdiction. In turn, the LTO branch offices carry out the implementation of the projects and the enforcement of the LTO rules and regulations in the region. The LTO CALABARZON regional office, along with the LTO branch offices, is created so the agency can get closer to the people, making it easier for the agency to monitor the local motorists, drivers, car owners, and operators. This also helps them maintain safe, efficient, convenient, and economical land transport service for the residents of the region.

As the LTO regional division in charge of CALABARZON, the LTO Region 4A (CALABARZON) regional office in Lipa City, Batangas makes it a point to ensure excellent public service across all the LTO agencies. Their programs and activities geared towards better economic, industrial and social development are taken care of by the LTO branches within the region’s territorial jurisdiction.
