As Mark said, you can use the international license for a period of 90 days [starting from the day of your arrive], In the RP there's know distinction between an international license and your standard home country license. as you approach the 90 day mark you'll have to visit your local LTO office and apply for you RP license, it's a simple enough procedure, depending on the LTO office that your using, you'll be issued a license that day, either the real thing or a temporary license while the main license is being proccessed. there is some paperwork requirments for your appliation, such as if your license is printed in a foriegn language a translation will be required, you'll also need a valid visa, however you do have the intial 90 days period to check out any new rules that the LTO may have introduced.John

As a matter of fact, I have both a UK and an International drivers' licences however the only license that LTO wanted to see was my UK one. As John says, if your national license is not in English, you will need a translation certified by your country's Consulate. You also need a permanent address - hotels are not accepted.If you plan to drive here, you really do need a Philippines' license; without one, although you can buy motor insurance, you can not make a claim.Mark

Get a motorcycle endorsement on you license in your home country and your home country license is good for 90 days each time you enter the Philippines, so unless the rules change, no need for a local license.
