LTO to require 15 hour seminar for student permits




Following the Memorandum Circular 2019-2176 issued December last year, LTO will now require prospective student drivers to attend a mandatory 15-hour driving course starting April 2020.

The driving course is said to be divided into three sessions, including Introduction to traffic laws, Land Transportation-Related Special Laws, and general driving. These courses are available in driving course centers.

To be able to offer the 15-hour seminar, driving course centers must first be accredited, which lasts for two years. Instructors must score at least 85% to be able to issue the theoretical exam.

“Dapat i-inculcate na natin sa utak nila ‘yung batas. Kasi in the first place, ang drivers license, pribelehiyo lang yan. Hindi po ‘yan karapatan. Pwede namin tanggalin sa’yo yan kapag hindi ka sumusunod sa batas trapiko,” LTO Deputy Director for Law Enforcement Roberto Valera said.

    Gumawa kayo ng booklet o babasahin o applications for free. At hindi lang [email protected] na application na pwedeng pag aralan ng mga gustong matuto ng traffic rules. Marami kc driver dyan na di alam kung kailan gamitin ang hazzard light. Di rin alam ibig sabihin ng double yellow lane. Blinking red light. At marami pa LTO please..
    Educate the people by provide drivers booklets or application from androids .. NOTE. KULANG ANG Q&A applications lang.at kulang ang three day seminar.
    Suggestion: gayahin nyo yong DMV CALIFORNIA DRIVERS HANDBOOK. Meron na rin sa application store.. binasa at pinag aralan ko yan bago me nag exam sa drivers license sa usa noon. Marami ako natutunan dyan at naitatak sa akin lalo na how to be a defensive driver.
    Sana makatulong
    For better Phillipines and still hoping for that…

      In my humble opinion and it is based on my experiences ….just like here at Canada po…may website po sila per provinces which is designed po para sa mga gusto mag review in preparation sa written exam..mas malaking tulong sa road safety if properly assisted and educated na ang mga magkakaroon ng driving license…at sa dapat taasan ang mga fines sa mga violators para lalong sususnod ang mga driver sa batas trapiko. at sana maging seryoso ang mga training organisation sa kanilang trabaho…failed is failed sana…#FixerNoMore.

      Suggestion lang po…#forbetterPH..

      written exam=unlimited take (with payment per exam)
      road test = maximum of take 5(with payment per exam)

      Note:after take 5 of road test and still failed mandatory schooling for a period of time.

      with that process maybe we can produce a responsible, more disipcline ,defensive and law abiding drivers…

      God bless Maharlikans

    15 hours to learn road rules they will not follow…because filipino drivers do not follow rules.

    Follow the u.s.a. pattern in acquiring a driver’s license. Very fair and strict. .

  5. Jay says:

    Let professional drivers undergo seminars everytime they renew their licenses

  6. jon says:

    how about if you just want to renew your existing student permit? do you still need to attend 15 hrs seminar?

    Pano ang sa mga non pro at pro na basta nagkalisensya? At kelan ito ipatutupad? Buong branch ba? Pano ung mga hindi nag ddrugs pero nasa ilalim naman ng pinagbabawal na inumin like alak? Mas madalas nakainom ang nagmamaneho kompara sa naka drugs

  10. Vergel says:

    I have driving NCII. Am I still needed to attend this seminar? This topics were already been taught to us longer than 15 hours.

  11. Pony says:

    Pati mga tao na tumatawid dapat may seminar din, lalo na sa probinsya, hindi marunong tumawid.

  12. Bolado says:

    Magkano naman kaya bayaran para mka exempt dito.? Kaya dumarami kamot at aksidente sa daan kasi kahit gaanu ka strikto, madadaan sa bayaran.. E exam kaya muna yung mga nasa LTO.?

  13. Pampa says:

    Karamihan, ung mga walang lisensya yung nakaka-disgrasya. You can always teach those topics/lectures in schools. Pati pag-uugali sa pagmamaneho naituturo. Discipline are for those who follow.. how about those who don’t, they will never be known until caught. Lagi na lang sa mga disiplinado ung abala, pati usapin sa mga plaka sa mga sumusunod sa batas lang ang apektado. Gawan nyo naman ng aksyon ung mga hindi sumusunod oi!
