I’ve been to this before. Downloaded the ADL form listed above using online registration to avoid the long line just to go get a form to fill up before application. I have also applied in person for my own student permit in the Land Transportation Office before I was issued my very own professional driver’s license. I had it later on converted and downgraded from level 1,2,3 to a non pro 1 and 2 only. My reason? I don’t ever want to drive trucks which is for the level 3 qualification.

So here goes. First off, I would like to let you know that there is also an available conductor’s permit in the LTO in case you are after this one. For those of you who would like to apply for a student permit, you have to realize a few important facts prior to your application and also before you fill up the official form (which I have provided a downloadable pdf version above). Student permits are workable or valid for only 1 week (back in 2008 but not sure today because LTO website is still down and useless) which means that you have to consume its validity for the purpose actual driving lessons with a professional license holder and qualified driving instructor.

Remember that after which process of your driving lessons, you will be tested in the branch where you will obtain or apply for your own pro or non pro driver’s license. Also take note that you will have to go get your NSO birth certificate first before applying for a student permit. This is for the purpose of letting the authorities know that you are qualified to apply based from the listed age requirement below.



  1. Must be at least 16 years old.
  2. Must be physically and mentally fit to operate a motor vehicle.
  3. Must be able to read and write in Filipino or English.
  4. Must not be a drug user and/or alcoholic.
  5. Must be clean, neat and presentable.


(For 16-18 Years Old)

Step by Step Procedure in Application of Student Permit (license): (source:

1. Proceed to the Customer Service Counter to have your documents checked for completeness, and secure a Driver’s License Application Form. (This form is available for download at the LTO website. You can accomplish this form prior to transacting your business at the LTO window.) Get a queue number and wait for your number to be called. This has been changed today, your name will be called upon and the window number to which you will go will also be announced along with your name. Be sure to always be alert.
2. When your number is called, proceed to the transaction counters to submit all required documents to the Evaluator.
3. Proceed to the Phototaking/Signature Area to have your picture and signature taken when your name is called.
4. Proceed to the Cashier when your name is called to pay the necessary fees and obtain an Official Receipt.
5. Proceed to the Releasing Counter, present the Official Receipt and claim the temporary student permit/license.
