LTO extends license validity, renewal for 60 days after lockdown
The Land Transportation Office (LTO) has extended the validity of driving licenses for two months after the “enhanced community quarantine” (ECQ) ended, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) said on Wednesday.
DOTr said the agency will not also issue penalties for late registrations and renewals during the lockdown. LTO will start accepting applications once the ECQ was lifted.
In the meantime, LTO has reduced its personnel and will only be open until Saturday. Health workers and officers will be prioritized.
Other LTO offices in outside of Metro Manila are open, but will be limited to renewal applications only. Application for driver’s license or student permit will not be available until at least June 30.
The department reminded the public not to wait until at the end of the grace period “to avoid overcrowding at the offices on the day of the deadline.”
