All drivers seeking to renew their license will now be required to acquire a certification from the Comprehensive Driver’s Education (CDE) starting Oct. 28, said the Land Transportation Office (LTO).
“Ang lahat ng magrerenew ay kailangang dumaan sa Comprehensive Driver’s Education (CDE) upang matanggap nila ang kanilang CDE Certificate,” said LTO in a recent advisory.
This is according to a provision in Republic Act (RA) 10930 which will be first implemented in the Central Office-Licensing Section and the Quezon City Licensing Center (QCLC) starting Oct. 28.
LTO said it will be followed by other offices in the National Capital Region on November 3, 2021.
The LTO then added that the start date for all areas outside the NCR will be announced at a later date.
Apart from the CDE certification, drivers may now also apply for a 10-year Driver’s License renewal if they do not have a traffic violation record, meanwhile, those who do can only apply for a 5-year renewal.
The CDE materials can be obtained either from the LTO Portal’s website, at LTO offices or at LTO-Accredited Driving Schools.
Applicants must first fill up an application form at the Land Transportation Management System (LTMS) page on the LTO website, where all transactions are being processed.
