LTO ups website for driver’s license and student’s permit application
Land Transportation Office (LTO) may now apply for driver’s license and student driver’s permit online through a website.
Dubbed as the Land Transportation Management System, the online portal allows applicants to set an appointment, submit their requirements, and pay fees online. The initiative is part of the agency’s efforts in implementing social distancing as the country continues to fight against the coronavirus pandemic. This also shortens the processing time of other LTO-related transactions.
Currently, the service is available in the following LTO pilot sites:
• Quezon City Central Office
• Ever Gotesco Driver’s License Renewal Office (Commonwealth Avenue, Quezon City)
• San Fernando
• Davao City
• Tagum City (Davao del Norte)
• Baguio City
• Naga City
• General Santos
• Ormoc City
• Laoag City
• Dumaguete City
Agusan Del Norte
• Malaybalay City
Zamboanga del Sur
Based on the report, 20 more additional LTO sites located in the key towns and cities will use the online portal next week to serve more customers. These are Marikina, Pasig, Manila-West, Manila-South, Baloc, Sta. Maria, Tarlac, Guagua, Santiago, Masbate, Balayan, Taal, Tagaytay, Imus, Dasmarinas, Binangonan, Antipolo, Sta. Cruz (Pila), Laguna, Candon, Vigan, and Batac.
LTO still accepts walk-in customers provided that they follow the safety measures prescribed by the government. The office has assigned staff to assist those who are having difficulties using the online portal.
Pilot testing for online vehicle registration under the website is also on-going. It will be open to the public by September 2020.
