How To Renew Driver’s License

Friday, January 8th, 2010 | Philippines, Tips with 6 Comments

If you have a driver’s license in the Philippines, it has a validity period of three years.  So if you acquired your license in 2007, it will expire on your birthday on 2010.  The expiration falls on the month and day of your birth date.  The validity applies to both non-professional and professional licenses.

Driver’s license can be renewed in any Land Transportation Office (LTO).  Failure to renew the driver’s license until the date of expiration has a corresponding penalty.

Expired driver’s license penalty

  • 1 day to 1 year expired  the penalty is P75
  • Expired for more than a year to 2 years the penalty is P150.

The same penalty applies to both non-professional and professional licenses.

Requirements in Renewing Driver’s License

  • Original Driver’s license expiring and expired for not more than two years
  • Duly accomplished application form
  • Medical Certificate from any LTO accredited physician
  • Drug test certificate from any LTO accredited drug testing laboratory.

The LTO  previously require applicants to submit photocopy of Tax Identification Number (TIN) Card.  But they have relaxed this requirement recently.  The same requirements applies to both non-professional and professional licenses.

Steps in renewing Driver’s License

  1. Go to any accredited LTO physician and secure a medical certificate.
  2. Go to any accredited Drug testing laboratory and secure a drug test certificate.
  3. Fill up the application renewal form.
  4. Submit the duly accomplished application form to an evaluator.
  5. Have your picture taken together with your digital specimen signature.
  6. Pay the following fees:
    • License fee        P350.00
    • Computer fee      67.63
  7. Total                     P417.63

  8. Secure the new driver’s license and official receipt from the releasing window.

The same procedure applies to both non-professional and professional licenses.

All fees mentioned above are subject to change.

    what happened to the LTO computerized system? bakit palagi nagha-hang mga computers nila specifically sa LTO District Office sa Lipa City, Batangas. I went there 9am and was able to get my card 1:30pm. Please improve your customer service.

    ano ba talaga purpose ng TIN sa pagkuha ng driver’s license? tapos ngaun inalis din naman? baka un RFID ganun din ha? matapos namin magbayad ng P500 for the RFID bigla nyo sasabihin di na kelangan later on. sinira nyo pa naman tint ng salamin ko para lang ilagay RFID na yan. nakaka-alangan tuloy magdrive dahil the sticker is blocking my site.
