They will be extending the validity of driver’s licenses that expired during the ECQ to 60 days starting from the lifting of lockdown. In addition, there will be no penalties applied for the late registration of motor vehicles and the renewal of driver’s licenses that expired during the ECQ period.

The agency will also be limiting its transactions once they are operative in order to observe social distancing guidelines and other health protocols. In line with this, LTO will be reducing the number of personnel servicing counters.

However, they are considering operating during Saturdays so that more people may be accommodated. Frontliners will be prioritized in the opening of the offices.

Applicants are requested to process their registration before the end of the grace period, so that they may avoid overcrowding of the offices.
