DRIVER'S LICENSE WITH 5-YEAR VALIDITY, TO BE ISSUED STARTING NEXT WEEK

DRIVER'S LICENSE WITH 5-YEAR VALIDITY, TO BE ISSUED STARTING NEXT WEEK

STARTING next week, the Land Transportation Office (LTO) will issue driver's license with five-year validity.

But LTO clarified it will be rolled out on a staggered basis.

The licenses with an extended validity will first be issued by three LTO branches in Quezon City starting October 10.

Metro Manila LTO Offices will issue the said driver's license starting October 14.

LTO branches outside Metro Manila will issue a new license by year-end.



LTO Assistant Secretary Edgar Galvante, despite having extended validity, the new licenses will still come in the form of paper receipts instead of plastic cards.

It is because the agency has yet to resolve the procurement issue since 2013.

The LTO targets to issue plastic license cards again by the second quarter of 2017.

A Promise fulfilled.

President Rodrigo Duterte in his first State of the Nation Address (SONA) last July 25, announced that the government will work hard to extend the validity of car plates and driver's licenses.

Last September 19, Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade signed a Department of Order that will extend the validity of car plates and driver's licenses from three years to five years.

Tugade said, this is a part of the medium-term plan of the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and 30-year road map to address complex transportation and traffic issues. 

"Part of the plan next year, 'pag bumili ng kotse kasama na 'yung plaka," Tugade added.

At present, professional and non-professional driver’s licenses are valid only for three years.

Last August, the Land Transportation Office (LTO) said, they will initially implement the five-year validity of driver's license in Metro Manila this coming October and the rest of the regions will follow.

LTO added that the move was compliance with President Duterte's directive to lessen the queues at the agency and avoid red tape.
