LTO Website –

Google Advertisements

Blogging about the official website of the Land Transportation Office (LTO) Philippines is a must for me. That is because many Pinoys are still making a mistake trying to visit other sites even if they are not the real one. Here’s a clue in knowing which is which. First off, since the LTO is a government agency, then by common sense if you have ever been to a search of any government site, the URL or web address should always be with a URL extension of

In view of helping Pinoys easily know what the real website is, here is a short post trying to reveal the information.

The LTO website is Using the online address in blue highlight will definitely and 100% lead you to the right place to find different relevant information. On the other hand, for others to know it outright, I have also put the same URL in the title of this post so as Filipinos won’t have a hard time knowing.

I hope with this post that I may be able to help others find the right place with which they can make an inquiry of their driver’s license application, student permit validation, fees to pay for license, car registration and renewal and new application of license.

      @ Mr. Kenneth
      Ano ba nabago sa LTO, any branch eh puro corruption. Fixers naglipana kahit naglipana ang signs na Bawal ang Fixers or something to that effect. Kaya naglipana din ang di marunong magmaneho at naglipanan ang aksidente.
      Mr. Pinoy, balasahin mo na talaga LTO at pati mga LTO branches eh ipabago mo na kasi saksakan ng dumi at very disorganized ang pamamaraan. Maawa ka sa mga naiwan ng mga namatay dahil sa aksidente sa roads and hi-ways. Legalizations regarding Philippine issued driving lincenses eh parang di kinikilala sa ibang bansa kasi alam nila na nabibili driving license dito; means that kahit di ka maruong magdrive ng kotse o truck, pwede kang magka license; gusto mo o-offeran ka pa additional permit or aalisin ang restriction to drive a motorcycle at syempre for additional fee o lagay.. grabe. Grabe na sitwasyon natin. Para tayong bansa sa north africa na. Sa plaka ng sasakyan naman, kahit di pa rehistrado ang sasakyan, nakakalusot na pag nagsabit sa harap at likod ng “For registration’ na sign. Only in the Philippines, diba mga taga LTO. Magpaparehistro ka lang ng sasakyan, kulang ang maghapon kaya nga fixers na lang ang lalapitan para mapadali ang oras. Fix doon at fix dito ang ginagawa sa bawat empleado sa loob. Hati hati sa commission after the day’s work. AMinin man o hindi, kayo na lang humusga

    • yuka nakamura says:

      thats okey maam,JAF would not write it down anyway of your translation drivers license into japanese ,moreover The driving license center in your prefecture they usually get a copy of your passports amendments immigration stamp,and that they can see how long did you stay ,unless 3 months or more in philippines,some prefecture needs proof of identity you can get that in Philippines Lto,they have service of that especially ofw,or filipino currently resideng outside country.

  • marissa ordonez says:

    what are your requirements for a student drivers license & how much will it cost?

    • best master says:

      1. Must be at least sixteen (16) years old.
      2. Must be physically and mentally fit to operate a motor vehicle.
      3. Must be able to read and write the local dialect, Filipino or English
      1. Original and photocopy of birth certificate. You can use your NSO. In the absence thereof, any of the following:
      ? a. Joint Affidavit of two (2) disinterested persons who know the applicant and who can attest to his/her age and identiy accompanied by non-availability of record from NSO or the local civil registry office.
      ? b. Any legal document to prove his/her age and identity such as GSIS, SSS, passport, or any government issued documents.
      2. For applicants below 18 years old, parent’s or guardian’s written consent with photocopy of ID card to prove his identity.
      3. Taxpayer’s Identification Number (TIN), If EMPLOYED.
      4. Dully accomplished Application for Driver’s License (ADL) form.
      Venue: Any Licensing Center or District Office
      Student Permit (SP) Fee Php. 150
      Application Fee 100
      Computer Fee 67.83
      TOTAL Php 317.63
      First, you need to go the LTO office as early as possible. It doesn’t take so long to process a Student License and you don’t need to talk to any fixers. Go to the 1st window and show your requirement(s). After verifying your valid I.D. the personnel will give you an application form. Fill them out.
      After filling out the application form, return it to the next window and wait for your name to be called in the Cashier. After payment, sit down to the waiting area and wait for your name to be called for Image Capturing and electronic signature. Stand by again and wait for the releasing.
      Then, after waiting for 10 minutes to 1 hour (depends on what time you arrived in LTO), they will release your Student License.

  • jay corbilla says:

    Hi! OFW po ako and i have a license here in mid east converted to international license. plan ko po mag for good na and i want to apply a phil license, same pa din po ba ang process? do i still need to get a student permit first? thanks!

  • lucena says:

  • mariel papas says:

    pwede po ba kumuha ng license kahit matagal na sa abroad??meron naman dating license sa pinas thanks

    • transportation office says:

      Try nyo po irenew pero I believe po, Ms. Mariel na you will have to go through the same process na parang new applicant na ulit kayo as in you will have to take the written and actual driving examination para makakuha ulit ng license. Kaya nga po dapat wag ipa expire ang inyong mga lisensya para di masayang ang inyong ID… Marami po itong gamit apart from driving dahil it is also considered a primary ID at mas madali po mag renew ng hindi expired na license kaysa sa expired. Wag hayaang ma expire po ito para walang hassle.

      • Veronica says:

        Sir yung license ko po dyan s pinas eh ginamit ko pra mkdrive din ako dito s belguim. Nalegalized nman po nila wlang problema pinatranslate ko lng sa language dito. Sir if paguwi ko b dyan s pinas pwede ko ding magamit itong bago ko ng license galing belgium? yung luma kong license kinuha nung licensing dept dito eh. Salamat po , sana matulungan nyo ko.

        • transportation office says:

          I believe so pwede pero may certain provisions and guidelines po. To be sure, best is to ask the nearest LTO branch na lamang po kasi alam naman natin na nag reorganize lamang recently ang Land Transportation Office ng kanilang system. Baka po nagbago na or may mga naiba.

          • Tammy C. Nopal says:

            sir/maam officer, did you notice veronica is in abroad how could you say visit tje nearest LTO office at sa mga sagot mo you don’t have enough knowledge about LTO if you assign on this site you should have enough knowledge about your job discription. don’t be upset because this is what we observe.

  • kenneth cadayong says:

    kukuha sana ako ng student license dito sa LTO sa Dutyfree parañaque, first time ko kasi kaya hindi ko alam ang gagawin.. sabi ng isang tao na taga LTO kuha ka ng form jan at mag fill up ka.. di ko alam kung saan ako kukuha.. kasi lahat sila busy at may ginagawa.. baka pag may kinuha ako sabihin magnanakaw pa ako.. sabi ng isang lalake na taga LTO marunong ka bang magbasa?? sabay tawa.. sabay sabi sa isa nyang kasama na.. “pre paki tanong nga sa kanya kung marunong syang magbasa” sabay abot ng form sakin at tinanong ako kung marunong akong magbasa.. sabay ngiti.. tapos sabi ng naunang lalake na nagsabi na kung marunong akongmagbasa,, fill-up an mo yan. baka masayang ang form.. tsaka ka magbasa.. kaya di na ako nag fill-up at sinoli ko nalang yung form.. kasi baka masayang ang form..

    ganyan pla ang approach ng mga taga LTO sa mga kukuha ng mga license.. walang modo.. di ko naman nilalahat.. pero bakit kailangan sabihin sakin na kung marunong pa akong magbasa,. mejo napahiya ako sa dalawang tao na yun.. kasi tinawanan ako.. parang nakaka-loko ng mga tao eh.. kaya hindi tayo umaasenso eh..

    • Ma. Carmela Santos says:

      Ang tindi talaga ng pangangailangan ngayong panahong ito ng LTO Lucena grabe kung manghuli itong si Mr. Ramos. Grabe talaga kahit wala kang alam na violation ay magkakaroon. Ang ticket ng driver namin pulos erasures walang makitang violation. Iyong kulay na lang ang pinansin – pinagawang black with white dahil majority daw ang black, yon pala wala sa system nila ang black with white dahil yong unique color ang tinitingnan ng company at LTO noon. Mabuti kung pinapinturahan ng bago e hindi naman at ang original color pa na white ang still possess ng vehicle. Nakakapagtaka naman yearly ay nirerenew ito at tuwing irerenew ini-inspect nila ito bakit ngayon lang nila nakita na according to them ay mali daw ana kulay whereas yon ang kulay nito from the very start, hindi ba ito ay neglegence nila na ipinapasa lang sa amin o sinasadya para magkaroon (kuno) ng violation. Marami na ang galit sa Mr. Ramos na ito ng LTO Lucena – hindi marunong maawa sa naghahanap buhay ng legal. Bakit hindi niya hulihin ang mga colorum na tricycle na patuloy pa ring nakakapagpasada lalo na tuwing gabi. Bakit hindi siya lumabas kung gabi at manghuli natatakot ba siyang mabugbog.
