Good news for those whose driver’s license validity has expiresd during the enhanced cpmmunity quarantine.

In an interview on Dobol B on May 5, Land Transportation Chief Assistant Secretary Edgar Galvante announced that the LTO has extended the validity of driver’s licenses that expired during ECQ to 60 days which will start upon the lifting of the restrictions. when the offices open after the quarantine period, applicants may process their renewal within 60 days.

Galvante also said that no penalties will be collected for the late registration of motor vehicles and renewal of driver’s licenses that expired within the duration of the community quarantine.

To avoid overcrowding at the offices on the day of the deadline, Galvante advises applicants to process their registration before the end of the grace period.

The LTO will limit its transactions once the ECQ is lifted. This is to observe health protocols such as social distancing which is very important in battling the COVID-19 pandemic. Personnel will also be reduced in counters and LTO is considering operating on Saturdays to accomodate more applicants. As the offices are opened, frontliners will be the priority.
