Just bring all of those documents and papers you have procured before and just pay the renewal fee. If you are late or had arrears with your renewal, you’ll have to pay a designated penalty. Usually 200 pesos or so.

So there you have it, if you have any problems regarding updating of your registration or renewal or just you do not want to be bothered with the hassle of dealing with the LTO. Please let me know, I may be able to help.
