The Land Transportation Office (LTO) announced that starting October 28, Filipinos who want to renew their driver’s license are now required to take Comprehensive Driver’s Education (CDE).
In a recent advisory, the LTO announced that everyone who wants to get their license renewed will have to present a CDE certificate, which they can get once they complete the CDE.
This new policy is in accordance with the Republic Act 10930 that will be first implemented in the Central Office Licensing Section and the Quezon City Licensing Center (QCLC) starting today, October 28.
LTO said that it will also roll out in their offices in the National Capital Region starting November 3, 2021. Meanwhile, the rollout in areas outside the NCR will be announced soon.
Moreover, drivers can now also apply for a 10-year Driver’s License renewal, which was first announced back in July. This is a nice incentive for those who have zero traffic violation record. However, those who do can only apply for the 5-year renewal.
Drivers can get the CDE materials on LTO’s website, physical offices, or in accredited driving schools.
