Driver’s License Application Requirements

06 - 22

Did you know that there are more than 10 types of driver’s license applications that can be done at the Land Transportation Office (LTO)?  The most common are Student Permits and Non-professional license applications, but it appears that these are just the tip of the iceberg. Farther are other types of applications for Conductor’s License, License Change Classification (from Non-Professional to Professional), Additional Restriction Codes, and so much more.

We are sharing the LTO’s list of license applications and the corresponding documentary requirements in today’s blog.  Keep this as a bookmark or print a hard copy to serve as your reference when transacting with the LTO.

  1. MasterCitizen sir, kindly provide some information about my plan of depositing/surrender my UV truck “plate number” before expiration of its registration because it is not going to be in use for years to come. I’m here abroad and nobody will be using my truck. Thanks.
