A new motor vehicle inspection center in Manila

The rise of Motor Vehicle Inspection Centers (MVIC) is rooted in the government’s desire to have safer roads. Thousands of vehicular accidents occur in the Philippines each year, with around 31,811 recorded until August of 2020 in NCR alone. Of these accidents, a number could have been avoided by detecting these mechanical problems early. That is the purpose of Motor Vehicle Inspection Centers: to determine the aspects of your vehicle that need to be addressed or repaired to make your drive safer.

While many MVICs have already opened outside of Metro Manila. There are still very few near the city’s residents. Thankfully, the newest, Steadfast MVIC is in the heart of Manila.

Steadfast MVIC officially opened on June 23, 2021 to serve everyone’s vehicle inspection needs. The facility boasts of trained employees and top tier equipment, committed to deliver valid and reputable vehicle assessment.

The opening was graced by Atty. Roque Versoza, Assistant Regional Director of LTO NCR West and Ms. Marinette Abarico, District Office Head of LTO Makati. This newly opened Motor Vehicle Inspection Center (MVIC) is accredited both by the Land Transportation Office (LTO) and the Department of Transportation (DOTr).

“It is our duty as responsible motorists to prioritize road safety at all times. To ensure that our vehicles pass the standard quality, it is imperative to have it thoroughly and regularly inspected. Steadfast MVIC aims to make MVICs more accessible to our vehicle owners so it is easier for them to maintain the good condition of their automobiles,” said Michelle Cinco, Vice President.

 State-of-the-art facility

Through MVICs like Steadfast, both private and public vehicles are inspected via automated machines to produce objective results free of human error. These centers are in strict compliance with the Motor Vehicle Inspection System (MVIS), the standard method of inspection which is guaranteed to be systematic and reliable. The process is carried out through a computerized step-by-step process with limited human intervention.

Steadfast MVIC offers visual inspection and exhaust emission tests that are mandatory for vehicles before they can register at LTO. It also offers over 70 assessments for a holistic examination, as well as to check your vehicle’s roadworthiness and overall safety condition.

Rates are affordable, pegged at P600 for light vehicles (car, SUV, jeep, van) and trucks not more than 500 kilograms in weight, while a fee of P500 is charged for motorcycles, tricycles, and big bikes. All rates are VAT exclusive and LTO registration is excluded from the services of Steadfast MVIC.

Steadfast MVIC puts safety first. One inspection can quickly spot faulty automotive components and significantly reduce road accidents.
