LTO to roll out 10-year driver's license from Oct. 28 https://cnnphilippines.com/news/2021/10/27/LTO-10-year-drivers-license-rollout.html Some points: Motorists will soon be issued a driver's license that's valid for 10 years. But only drivers with zero violations on file are entitled to a license good for ten years. Those who have breached traffic laws may only avail of a five-year renewal. The LTO will start rolling out the extended validity beginning Thursday, Oct. 28. This will initially be limited to Quezon City. Other Metro Manila areas will be covered next week, and the rest of the country in the following days. Motorists seeking to renew their licenses must first pass a comprehensive driver's education (CDE) program before submitting an application. The law requires them to go through a refresher seminar. To give drivers more time to comply with the CDE requirement, the agency said it is extending the validity of existing licenses by two months from the date of expiration. CDE: "We advise those who are due for renewal not to go to the LTO until they have the certificate to prove they have finished the seminar." The CDE is being offered for free at all of its offices, as well as on its website and platforms, such as Facebook page and YouTube channel. The accompanying exam may be taken through the Land Transportation Management System portal, or at driver's education centers in select LTO offices. The course and the exam may also be taken at accredited driving schools where a fee will be charged. Should a person fail to pass, they can retake the seminar as many times as needed [that won't concern anyone on this Forum!].
