Today, the Department of Transportation-Land Transportation Office (DOTr-LTO) rolled out driver’s license cards with five-year validity at the LTO main office on East Avenue, Quezon City.
Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade congratulates LTO chief Edgar Galvante in addressing the problem of driver’s license card processing. Galvante mentioned that those who will apply for new driver’s license and those who will renew old ones will receive their plastic cards on the same day. He also said that those who applied for driver’s license October last year would be getting their plastic cards starting next week.
A comparison between the 3-year validity driver’s license cards, and the 5-year validity driver’s license cards were also shown during the official rollout. Galvante said that the new plastic license cards, which are laser engraved and made of polycarbonate material, are not only durable but also have several security features.
