The Land Transportation Office (LTO) has released a memorandum stating that aspiring drivers will soon be required to undergo a seminar before securing a student permit.
KAMI learned that aspiring drivers have to undergo at least 15 hours of basic drivers’ education in accredited schools.
In a report by the Inquirer, LTO deputy director Edgar Valera said that the agency is still finalizing the modules that include updates on national laws and local ordinances, proper driver discipline, and reading of traffic signs and signals.
The LTO will be updating the requirements to implement the Republic Act No. 10930.
Aside from the required seminar, the proposed measure also extends the validity of a driver’s license for up to 10 years during renewal.
It has been reported that the new regulation will be implemented starting in April 2020. The course will be divided into three sessions and it will include the introduction to driving and traffic rules, as well as the Land Transportation-Related Special Laws.
