The Land Transportation Office-Philippines (LTO) has extended the validity of driver’s licenses that expired during the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) to 60 days or 2 months, which will commence upon the lifting of the restrictions.
In addition, LTO also announced no penalties will be collected for the late registration of motor vehicles and renewal of driver’s licenses that expire within the duration of the ECQ.
LTO will also limit its transactions once the ECQ is lifted, to observe health protocols, such as social distancing, in light of the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
Furthermore, the agency will reduce personnel in counters, but to accommodate more applicants, the office is considering operating during Saturdays, and frontliners will be the priority in the opening of the offices.
Applicants should process their registration before the end of the grace period, to avoid overcrowding at the offices on the day of the deadline.
