By Lyza Paloma June 14th, 2020 Posted in Guide for Filipinos, Philippines Travel Blog, Travel Blog 2 Comments

Good news! The LTO or Land Transportation Office just launched an online portal where you can apply for a student permit or driver’s license through their website. You can quickly apply for a Philippine Driver’s License Online and renew it in the Land Transportation Management System (LTMS). This will be more convenient and helpful, especially under the “new normal.”

Due to the pandemic, many services will be made online to avoid overcrowding in the offices and soon avoid going there. With the LTMS Portal, physical distancing is ensured as there are limited people. This also will have lesser human interventions and hopefully avoid corruption. So far, from June 1 -15, the portal site undergoes pilot testing.

STEP 5: Continue until you are finished with the application. You can get an online appointment and also pay online. However, if you are applying for a new license, you still need to take an LTO examination at their office.

P.S. I’m sorry if it’s only up to here, I can’t access the next steps yet as I need a medical certificate number. I’ll update this ASAP.

So far, only a few places are open for the Pilot testing of the online portal. They will be opening more in a few weeks. This is very convenient, especially under the new normal so that people who visit the office are limited only.

  1. I have a valid med cert number from one of their accredited clinics (medical done late July 2020) but the ltms does not seem to recognize it. Rubbish.
