Number Coding Exemption for PWD

A while ago, a very nice person updated us on how to procure a UVVRP Exemption Certification or the MMDA Number Coding exemption for PWD.

 She provided us a copy of the requirement on what to present the MMDA office when applying for a MMDA Number Coding exemption for PWD. Basically there is and official procedure on how to apply but this is intended in the general public and not specific for PWD.

Below is the official procedure on how to apply for a number coding exemption:

What is the procedure in applying for UVVRP (Number Coding) exemption?

  1. Submit a letter of request addressed to the Office of the Chairman – MMDA (MMDA Main Bldg. EDSA cor. Orense St. Guadalupe Nuevo, Makati City).
  2. Submit a photocopy of the OR/CR of your vehicle.
  3. Upon approval, the applicant should pay an amount of P500 to the 6th floor (Treasury Department), for an exemption covering the period until December 30.

For PWD there are added document needed to procure first before going to the MMDA office in Guadalupe. In the image above stated that the following papers/documents are added to the basic requirements:

    I am a PWD and I would like to request for this. What exactly is a medical abstract and does anyone have a sample?

    • jefferson cordova jefferson cordova

      Hi Don,

      You can ask your doctor to produce an medical abstract

  2. PWDMom PWDMom

    You can ask for it from your doctor. It is a medical summary of your condition which serves as reference/proof that you are elgible as a PWD.

    Is it not enough just to present your PWD ID to MMDA Traffic Enforcers?

  4. Dindo Rodriguez Dindo Rodriguez

    My point is, PWD na nga di ba? Why still go to Guadalupe for am exemption?

    What if yung PWD(deaf 15 yrs old girl) is susunduin sa NAIA 3 sa araw ng number coding. At nakatira sa Cagayan Province na one time lang kung lumuwas. Kailangan pa ba magapply for exemption o dapat exemted na sana kasi nga PWD.

    Im Filipino. I have a UAE drivers licence expired already because I had stroke that’s why I’m here. Can I apply for license here? Do you release PWD plate number? Thank you for the advance reply

  8. Is there a more convenient way to apply for exemption if you are a PWD? I mean, you extend the courtesy to exempt us, but why the hassle of applying it in Guadalupe only? Can we not just apply through our local city hall or through the office who issued us the PWD card?

    PWD na yung tao base sa PWD id. kung nakasakay ay PWD, dapat automatic exempted yung vehicle sa coding scheme. may application requirements pa? anong kalokohan iyan? may bayad din application? another kalokohan. kalokohan ang MMDA. mga taong walang utak o nagbubulagbulagan ang mga namumuno.

      • John fortich John fortich

    How long is the validity of the exemption for PWDs when given?

    • PWD Friendly PWD Friendly

      Every last day of the Year you applied for an exemption. December 30 Year (2019 – if you applied for this year)

  11. melai melai

    Correct me if im wrong, bkit 6months lang ang validity at merun pang bayad na 1,000? grabe naman MMDA PWD nanga pinagkakaperahan pa

    Correct me if im wrong, bkit 6months lang ang validity at merun pang bayad? grabe naman MMDA PWD nanga pinagkakaperahan pa

    • PWD Friendly PWD Friendly

      Hi Melai! Correction LAST DAY of the year you applied po. For example you applied for exemption January of 2019 once approved it will be valid until the last day of the year of 2019 po. So better apply early so you can maximize tge usage of the said “exemption”.

        Thank you for giving importance the PWD, pero hindi po ba pwede na permanent na ang application hindi un every year e me renewal pa. Ang point po kc is PWD is permanente na un disability ng tao like for me, my wife is gulay ang functional na lang ay shoulder pataas, shoulder below ay lantang gulay na, para lng makapag pacheck up sa Manila dala ang motorized wheelchair at lahat ng gamit niya diaper, catheters etc., at pinaka mahirap is hindi pwede magtagal naka upo or higa dahil nag kaka bed sores.
        Hindi po ba pwede na pag nag apply sya ay permanente na din, napakahirap kc na kung maexpired ng 1 yr ang exemption, babalik pa ulit sa simula at gagawin ang simula ng procedures?., cguro naman me paraan para matulungan ang me kaso ng katulad ng sa asawa ko, once a year ko na lng nga makasama dahil OFW ako, pahirapan pa din ba sa ganun, sana me consideration naman po kayo dyan sa MMDA.

    hinuli ako kanina, Sept 10, 2019, ng MMDA enforcer. Hindi daw nila tinatanggap ang PWD id ko. Kailangan daw kumuha ng excemption. May polio ako sa righ leg

    • Jonathan L Salvacion Jonathan L Salvacion

      Thanks for posting this. I was about to drive to the office hoping to use my PWD ID in case I get flagged down because my car is banned today. Hindi pala puwede. Sana naman, tayong polio victims na hirap mag-public transport, permanently exempted na at hindi na kailangang mag-apply ng exemption.
