LTO driving licence department

Recommended Posts

Back in January 2016 I obtained my Phils driving licence which expires in May 2018. At the time the LTO had no plastic cards so my 'licence' was just a piece of paper with an official stamp on it. I was told at the time to return in a few weeks to receive my plastic licence.

I sort of forgot about it until this afternoon when I was driving past the LTO office in CDO and thought I would pop in to see if they still had my plastic licence. It was about 3-45pm. The office was not at all busy. Yes they had my shiney new (old) licence. The issuing officer noticed the expiry and asked if I would like to renew it? She handed me an applcation form and sent me next door to have my eyesight test. 5 minutes later I was back at the counter and paid the fee. Next counter I had my photo taken and signed an electronic pad. "Take a seat Sir". About 10 minutes later my name was called and I was handed a new plastic FIVE YEAR licence.  The whole process took less than 30 minutes.

What a result! I certainly wasn't expecting that.

I am so jealous.  The process has taken me 10 months so far, here in Dumaguete, and my next appointment, where they are expected to hand over a plastic 5 year license, is Aug 30, 2018 so that will be a year and a half to renew my license.  As is usual in Philippines, your experience is different from others. :16:

I went to the Makati LTO with the pice of paper and they saif it would take maybe 2 or 3 hours until it was my turn. Stated that Seniors get priority One according to their info on te glass counter.. they looked at me, asked if Im senior ( I am ) and had the shiny licence in my hands 15 minutes later. Love how seniors get priority here !

All told, renewing my drivers license in Naga Bicol took about 3 hours from arrival, medical screening sans drug test. It seemed helpful that I knew my blood type and they took my word for it. I walked out with plastic good for 5 years.

Interesting that you had a medical screening. In CDO they just require a very cursery eyesight test. No medical or drug test. It would seem that various LTO's have (or interpret) different rules. Where have I heard that before....:smile:
