OFWs, FIRST PRIORITY IN LTO'S DRIVER'S LICENSE CARDS







Good News to all Overseas Filipino Workers who are currently waiting for the issuance of plastic license cards!

According to Land Transporation Office (LTO) chief Edgar Galvante, OFWs are given priority in the issuance of plastic license cards.

Galvante said, due to current shortage of license cards, the agency will prioritize OFW in the distribution.



If you are an OFW and waiting, just submit your supporting documents in any LTO office near you.

What you need to do is present your passport, employment contract, plane ticket or verified documents issued from Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) and Overseas Welfare Workers Administration (OWWA).





“As of now, only overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) are given priority in the issuance of plastic license cards, subject to the submission of supporting documents such as passport, employment contract, plane ticket, and/or POEA or OWWA-issued/verified document,” said the LTO.

According to LTO official website www.lto.gov.ph, "OFW drivers are priotized in the release of the remaining supply of plastic cards. This is to prevent inconveniences and fruitless visits to our offices."


LTO's advisory could be bad news to those who are long waiting for their new driver's license card.

LTO executive director Atty. Romeo G. Vera Cruz said, there is no assurance as of now regarding the exact date of issuance of new cards

“To all holders of temporary driver’s license, please be advised that the plastic license cards are not yet available. We will issue an announcement once the plastic cards are available,”

The shortage of plastic cards started in 2013 when Commission of Audit (COA) disallowed payments to the previous cards supplier, Amalgamated Motors Philippines Inc., due to the lack of a proper contract.

Starting last October 8, the LTO implements the 5-year validity of driver's licenses.
