You can nominate the driver by submitting a notarized objection using the Appeal Form to the Valenzuela City Traffic Violation Adjudication Committee (VCTVAC) within five (5) days from receipt of the Notice of Violation together with the following:
i. Copy of the Notice of Violation;
ii. Copy of the Driver’s License of the alleged driver; and
iii. Notarized Affidavit of the alleged driver, admitting that he/she was driving the vehicle referred to in the Notice of Violation. Click here

However, if the alleged driver fails to pay the penalty or fine within five (5) days from the VCTVAC’s receipt of his/her notarized Affidavit, the registered owner shall be held secondarily liable and the amount shall be demandable upon him/her. The VCTVAC shall likewise instruct the LTO to put an alarm on the registration of the vehicle and/or the Driver’s License of the alleged driver.
Note that the registered owner of a vehicle remains responsible for the consequences of its operation. This includes any liability arising from traffic violations involving the use of the vehicle but the registered owner of the vehicle can seek reimbursement from the driver after paying the penalty or fine.
