LTFRB TNVS Application Process and Requirements

Before we start, it is very important to know what TNVS means and who are eligible to apply for TNVS.

What is TNVS?

TNVS MEARNING: TNVS or Transport Network Vehicle Services is the term used to describe the services provided by operators of Grab, Hype, OWTO and Snappy. In order to become a TNVS operator, you need to get a Certificate of Public Convenience (CPC) from the LTFRB (Land Transportation and Franchising Regulatory Board). It is important to know that only the operator whose name appears in the vehicle’s ORCR can proceed with the LTFRB TNVS application. This means that all requirements and information that will be provided should be in the name of the vehicle owner.

6 Steps on How to Process Your LTFRB TNVS Application

  1. Get an appointment for case number application from LTFRB’s Online Portal
  2. Prepare the requirements
  3. Go to LTFRB’s office on your appointment date and submit the requirements
  4. Get your provisional authority (PA)
  5. Attend the CPC hearing on the date provided by LTFRB
  6. Get your CPC

STEP 1: Get an appointment for case number application

LTFRB provides a schedule for securing an appointment date for case number application. Only on the given schedule can you access LTFRB’s TNVS Online Portal. Be sure that you have the necessary information required for securing an appointment.

Key in the verification code in LTFRB’s portal to continue. Once successful, you will receive another email containing your appointment date plus 3 attachments that you need to print.

Step 2: Prepare the TNVS Application Requirements

The confirmation email sent to you by LTFRB contains 3 attachments which include the LTFRB application form. Print in legal size bond paper (long bond paper) 4 copies of the operator’s data sheet and 4 copies of LTFRB application form and 1 copy of the confirmation email. You will present the confirmation email to LTFRB as proof that you have an appointment.

  • A printed copy of email confirmation

  • Notarized Operator’s Data Sheet (4 copies)
  • Proof of Filipino Citizenship (voter’s id, birth certificate, passport or marriage certificate)

Step 3: Submit the Requirements to LTFRB Office

On your appointment schedule, bring the TNVS application requirements to LTFRB East Avenue, Quezon City office. Be sure to fasten the requirements inside the long orange folder. LTFRB will not accept your application if the documents are not fastened properly.

Application cost about 890 Pesos. Here are the breakdown of fees:

  • Additional 70 Pesos for 3rd vehicle unit
  • Inspection fee of 50 Pesos
  • LRF – 10 Pesos
  • PA Fee – 250 Pesos

Step 4: Get your Provisional Authority (PA) from the LTFRB Office

LTFRB will give you the date of availability of your PA. Go back to LTFRB office on the said date to secure your PA. You will need to submit Proof of Garage, a photocopy of verified application form, Certificate of Conformity (CoC) from the bank and Passenger Insurance from PAMI or SCCI.

Requirements for proof of garage:

  • For those with 3 units, LGU Zoning Certificate is also required
