RA 10930 extends the validity period of licenses from five to 10 years from the previous three years for drivers who have not violated. When renewing a driver's license, motorists must take the Comprehensive Driver Education Program (CDEP) exam. Note 4 In Tennessee, the commissioner may issue an initial license or renew a license that will remain valid for 3 to 8 years for the transition from the five-year license to the eight-year license. Motorists who renew their licenses in areas where the 10-year licensing system is not yet in place can renew them using the old system, the LTO said.
Motorists who qualify to renew their driver's license for the 10-year validity period will continue to go through the same process as the standard 5-year driver's license renewal process. Inherently, drivers license holders with at least one traffic violation will only get the standard 5-year driver's license. Implementation of 10-year driver's licenses will begin in the Licensing Section of the LTO Central Office and the Quezon City Licensing Center (QCLC). Demerits will be awarded to drivers with violations, while there will be incentives for reputable drivers.
Implementation of the new 10-year licenses will begin in the Licensing Section of the LTO Central Office and the Quezon City Licensing Center, the agency said. Therefore, if you are a driver who follows all the traffic rules and regulations imposed on Philippine roads, then you can be granted a 10-year driver's license when you renew. Drivers 65 and older with a standard basic driver's license can use a saved photograph for each renewal indefinitely. LTO said motorists who renew their expired driver's licenses will need to pass Comprehensive Drivers Education (CDE), which is comprised of a refresher seminar and an exam designed to ensure that only deserving applicants have sufficient driving skills and safety knowledge road and the right road courtesy will renew their licenses.
Section 3 of RA 10930 also requires the LTO to conduct an examination of both applicants for new driver's licenses and those who renew their expired licenses. A professional or non-professional driver's license holder who has not committed any violation of RA 4136 and other traffic laws during the five-year period shall be entitled to a 10-year renewal of such license, subject to LTO restrictions. Note 1 In Louisiana, a person age 70 or older can renew by mail or online if they are medically diagnosed with a disability that prevents that driver from renewing in person and submits an affidavit from a physician certifying that the person reasonably possesses all the cognitive functions necessary to be a driver prudent. The agency said drivers who want to renew their licenses must first pass a refresher course called comprehensive driver education or CDE before submitting an application.
Motorists who renew their licenses at LTO offices that are now ready to issue licenses valid for 10 years will need to attend the CDE seminar and the accompanying exam. In addition to the exam, you will also need to prepare some documents, such as a medical certificate from an accredited medical clinic and a properly completed driver's license application form, and some cash to pay fees related to the driver's license renewal.
