LAND TRANSPORTATION OFFICE (LTO) TIGHTENS THE REQUIREMENTS FOR DRIVER’S LICENSE ISSUANCE
Updated: Jan 31, 2020
BUTUAN CITY – Land Transportation Office (LTO) Caraga disproved the spreading news about the need for NCII for driver’s license issuance.
However, according to Urbano Maglinis, OIC Chief Operations, and focal person for Road Safety of LTO Caraga, there are indeed new rules in the process.
Student permit applicants are required to attend not less than fifteen (15) hours of seminar.
Applicants are not allowed to enroll in just any driving schools. A driving instructor must be LTO accredited and should have a TESDA certificate.
“Ato na jud hugtan nga wala nay madamyos sa kalsada pinaagi sa pagpa-submit sa atong aplikante didto sa driving school na kung diin matutukan gyud ang ilang skills sa pagmaneho ug sa mga knowledge nga pwede nilang makutlo diha sa eskwelahan,” Maglinis said.
(We need to be stricter to avoid road accidents by requiring applicants to enroll in driving schools focusing on the driving skills and knowledge of the students.)
The Student Permit holder needs to comply with the eight-hour Practical Examination.
“…Mupadayon na ngadto sa walo ka oras na practical examination aron makita gyud nato nga naa jud skill ni siya,” Maglinis said.
(…The student permit holder proceeds to the eight-hour practical examination to test his actual skills.)
In the new rules, the professional and non-professional categories will be removed. It will be replaced by the category of vehicle they can drive.
While there are changes in the requirements for driver’s license issuance, the price remains the same.
These new rules reckon to be implemented this year.
The said agency anticipates that through this new strategy, the vehicular accidents caused by undisciplined drivers will be lessened.
