Good news! The LTO or Land Transportation Office just launched an online portal where you can apply for a student permit or driver’s license through their website. You can quickly apply for a Philippine Driver’s License Online and renew it in the Land Transportation Management System (LTMS). This will be more convenient and helpful, especially under the “new normal.”

Due to the pandemic, many services will be made online to avoid overcrowding in the offices and soon avoid going there. With the LTMS Portal, physical distancing is ensured as there are limited people. This also will have lesser human interventions and hopefully avoid corruption. So far, from June 1 -15, the portal site undergoes pilot testing.

So far, only a few places are open for the Pilot testing of the online portal. They will be opening more in a few weeks. This is very convenient, especially under the new normal so that people who visit the office are limited only.
