The previously granted 1-calendar year extension for expired driver’s licenses is no extended legitimate

MANILA, Philippines – The Land Transportation Business office (LTO) has unveiled a new timetable for the renewal of expired driver’s licenses.

People with driver’s licenses that expired from April 1 to September 30, 2023 may now get the printed model of their driver’s license centered on this timetable:

Driver’s license expiry day Plan of renewal
April 1 to 30, 2023 October 6 to 31, 2023
Could 1 to 31, 2023 November 1 to 30, 2023
June 1 to 30, 2023 December 1 to 31, 2023
July 1 to 31, 2023 January 1 to 31, 2024
August 1 to 31, 2023 February 1 to 29, 2024
September 1 to 30, 2023 March 1 to 31, 2024

LTO explained that the timetable is being implemented to avoid overcrowding in the agency’s offices. 

Meanwhile, individuals with a paper license might assert their plastic card license by returning to their licensing business office and presenting the receipt of their payment. 

Motorists who are unsuccessful to renew inside the approved agenda will have their licenses rendered as expired.

This comes right after LTO head Vigor Mendoza II stated that the company has secured enough plastic playing cards to address the backlog of driver’s licenses. 

Meron na po tayong sapat na bilang ng plastic cards to protect the printing of the driver’s licenses that expired mula April 1 hanggang September 30. Dahil sa tulong ng ating DOTr Secretary Jaime Bautista ay mas pinadami ang generation at mas pinabilis ang shipping para ma-tackle na natin ang backlog sa driver’s license,” stated Mendoza. 

(We now have a adequate selection of plastic cards to go over the printing of the driver’s licenses that expired from April 1 to September 30. Many thanks to the assist of DOTr Secretary Jaime Bautista, the production and speed of supply was improved to tackle the backlog of driver’s license.)

Formerly, the LTO granted an automated extension for the validity of expired driver’s licenses until April 2, 2023 or right until the selection of plastic playing cards gets to be ample. Given the latest offer of playing cards, that extension is no for a longer time in influence.

Grappling with plastic card shortages, the LTO has resorted to issuing paper licenses and electronic ones. At one particular level, Mendoza stated that the LTO’s backlog was growing by 20,000 cards for every working day. The agency’s initiatives to capture up were being also hampered by a courtroom scenario that quickly halted the supply of plastic cards. – All rights reserved. | Newsphere by AF themes.
