LTO-Cordillera to start issuing 10-year validity driver's license

Cordillera - In line with the provision of Republic Act (RA) No. 10930 which amended the Land Transportation and Traffic Code, the Land Transportation Office - Cordillera (LTO-CAR)  will start the regionwide issuance of driver's licenses with 10-year validity. 

LTO-CAR Regional Director Francis Almora said in a radio interview that LTO offices will start issuing license that is valid for ten years to those qualified motorists who possess both driving skills and knowledge of road safety and road courtesy.

Section 3 of the RA 10930 mandates that all motorists who will be renewing their expired driver’s licenses will have to pass the Comprehensive Driver's Education (CDE) which is composed of a refresher seminar and an examination designed to make sure that only deserving applicants who have sufficient driving skills and are knowledgeable of road safety and proper road courtesy will have their licenses renewed.

Motorists renewing their licenses in LTO offices that are now ready to issue 10-year valid licenses, will be required to take the CDE seminar and its accompanying examination.

The CDE seminar will be conducted for a maximum of five (5) hours and can be taken for free in driver’s education centers (DECs), and for a fee in LTO accredited driving schools. Motorists can also take the seminar online via the LTO’s LTMS portal.

Motorists who will fail in the examination following the CDE seminar will be required to retake the test.

Under Republic Act No. 10930 which amended the Land Transportation and Traffic Code, the new licenses that are valid for 10 years will be given to all driver’s license holders who do not have any traffic violations on file. Those with traffic violations recorded during the validity of their expired licenses, will be issued renewed licenses that are only valid for five (5) years.
