Rollout of 10-year driver’s license for zero violators starts
THE Land Transportation Office (LTO) yesterday announced the start of gradual rollout of driver’s license that is valid for 10 years to qualified motorists .
The LTO said the distribution of the license with extended validity will initially be limited to its Central Office and its Licensing Center both in Quezon City, in line with a law mandating the Comprehensive Driver’s Education (CDE) requirement.
Under Republic Act No. 10930, amending the Land Transportation and Traffic Code, the driver’s license validity period will be extended to 10 years, but with measures to monitor traffic violations, and for all DL holders to pass through the CDE.
Next week, the 10-year DL will be offered throughout the NCR and in subsequent days, in the rest of the country.
Under Republic Act No. 10930, amending the Land Transportation and Traffic Code, the DL validity period will be extended to ten years, but with measures to monitor traffic violations, and for all DL holders to pass through the CDE.
The 10-year license will be given to motorists with zero traffic violations and to those with violations logged during their previous DL validity period will be limited to a five-year renewal.
To give motorists more time to comply with the CDEP requirement, the LTO is extending the validity of DLs by two months from the date of expiration.
Meanwhile, the CDE consisting of video and written materials produced by the LTO, is being offered free at all LTO offices and via the LTO website (lto.gov.ph), and through other internet sites like the LTO Facebook page and YouTube.
Applicants need only to register for free at the LTO Land Transportation Management System (LTMS) via portal.lto.gov.ph, or can be assisted through the process by LTO front-liners in all LTO offices.
