Due to the recent news by the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB), a total of 5,000 slots will be opened for the TNVS service this month. So, if you plan on becoming a part of the industry, this might be your chance.
There was a meeting held and last week which was between some representatives from Transport Network Companies (TNCs) and LTFRB officials.
As per the LTFRB, these TNCs that would be provided extra slots for the TNVS include GoLag, Hype, OWTO, Grab, UHop, MiCab, and Aztech.
Here in the Philippines, you cannot just have a car and use it for public driving—and earn income. You need to register it with appropriate departments for you to be able to do it legally. The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) is the agency who validates and monitors the approval of these types of vehicles.
But how can you register for a new TNVS new CPC application? What requirements are there? And how much are the fees? Don’t worry because in this article, we will be guiding you on how you can register and be part of the list to be able to operate with your vehicle.
In the meeting between TNC representatives and the LTFRB, the agency said that they would be pushing to process up to a total of 1,000 TNVS new CPC franchise applications on a daily basis.
However, they made clarifications that these processes would only be for verification and for the Temporary Authority stamping—not the overall process on the registration and the application for the TNVS.
Are there qualifications for a specific person and his/her vehicle to be eligible for this application?
TNVS companies who operate in the Philippines would accept and approve your application if the following conditions are met:
- If you have a car
- A valid permit from the LTFRB to operate as either an operator or a driver.
- Certificate of Public Convenience (CPC) valid for two (2) years
- Provisional Authority (PA) valid for forty-five (45) days
- If you are included in the LTFRB’s master list that has been audited
Once you meet all of these conditions, you can apply and register for a TNVS new CPC application. Here’s what you have to do:
NOTE: The application for TNVS is open for Metro Manila only. If this is the case, then you can proceed with the registration.

How about registration for a new CPC?
As we mentioned above, there are two (2) types of authentic licenses from the LTFRB that potential TNVS applicants need to abide to. The PA which is the Provisional Authority and the CPC which is the license that is valid for two (2) years.
Of course, applicants would want to register for a CPC so that they won’t go through the hassle of going back and forth to the LTFRB office. So, here is how you can register for a TNVS new CPC.

He added that the agency added more people to hasten the TNVS application processing. Moreover, the LTFRB said that representatives from these TNC partners are currently giving aid to those who are applying.
