MANILA, Philippines — Land Transportation Office (LTO) centers in the National Capital Region (NCR) will start issuing driver’s licenses with a 10-year validity on November 3 to applicants with no violations, the agency’s Assistant Secretary Edgar Galvante said on Tuesday.

The LTO initially rolled out the initiative on October 28 in its Central Office-Licensing Section and the Quezon City Licensing Center.

According to Galvante, the implementation had no “major hit” so far.

“Actually, inumpisahan natin ang rollout niyan nung 28 dito sa Central Office Licensing Section at saka sa Quezon City Licensing Center at wala naman kaming nakitang major hit para sa implementasyon na ito,” Galvante said during the Laging Handa briefing.

(Actually, we began the rollout on October 28 in the Central Office Licensing Section and the Quezon City Licensing Center and we have not observed a major hit in the implementation.)

“Kaya simula bukas, ang buong NCR, lahat ng LTO offices sa NCR, makakapag-issue na ng 10-year license validity,” he added.

(So, starting tomorrow, all LTO offices in NCR may issue a 10-year license validity.)

To attain a 10-year license validity, an applicant must have no violations and must undergo a refresher seminar and pass a validating exam.

Individuals who cannot go to the office for the seminar, may visit the LTO portal for the modules.

“Pero ‘yung hindi po makakapunta, pwede po mag-access sila sa LTO portal kung saan pwede nilang pag-aralan ‘yung module na nakalahad do’n, ‘yung mga topics na kailangan nila matunghayan para maihanda sila do’n sa validating exam,” Galvante said.

Meanwhile, applicants with violations must still undergo the same process but will only be granted a five-year license validity, Galvante said.

Galvante further noted that individuals whose licenses are not yet expiring may not yet apply for the 10-year license validity.
