Car plates, driver’s license validity extended to five years




Department of Transportation (DOTr) Secretary Arthur Tugade has announced that car plates and driver’s license validity will be extended to five years.

In a report by GMA News Online published September 20, Tugade said that he has recently signed a Department Order which will extend the validity of car plates and driver’s license to five years from three years.


“Last night I signed a Department Order which will extend the validity of car plates and driver’s license to five years from three years,” Tugade said during the Manila Overseas Press Club (MOPC) Transportation forum.

The department’s plan for next year is for cars to come with plates when sold to consumers.

    So the new car plates have a validity of 5 years now? Previous car plates really don’t have expiration dates. Unless new designs would come out for implementation. My current (old) car plate is already more than 15 years old.

    ano po ibig sabihin ng car plates na extended to 5 years? ito po ba yung bagong bili na car na pwede e register ng 3 years advance? or papalitan yun plate after 5 years?

    old vehicles are re-registered every year… kung magiging every 5 years na ito, tagilid mga fixers ng lto…

      walang pagbabago sa personal vehicle insurance at TPL insurance… every year pa rin ang pagbababayd dahil mga private corporations ang mga hawak nito at kadalasan ng mga vehicle owners ay mas gusto ang magbayad ng taun-taon kaysa bulto na insurance fees…
