Driver's license renewal Philippines | Online appointment | Step by step

One of the things we can't avoid being adults is doing the government errands such as registering and renewing stuff which includes our driver's license. Well, let me make things a bit easier for you as I created a simple guide as per my experience on renewing mine. Hopefully, it helps you and more people in the future.

Driver's license Philippines

Let us make this guide simple and direct by immediately going to the first step.


STEP 1
Online appointment
https://www.lto.net.ph/

Go to this website then scroll down..

Land transportation Office (LTO) website


Select an appointment then make your way through the process..

When you are done. Print it and wait until the date of your appointment comes.

STEP 2
Appearance at the satellite office

Since I live in Marikina City, I selected the nearest satellite branch available. And it is here in the Marikina-Bayan area before the Marikina bridge going to and from Tanong (along J.P. Rizal St.). I arrived as per my schedule and immediately went to the customer service. I handed him my appointment documents then directed me to have my medical first located downstairs.

The medical cost P400.

It was fast as I only answered a single sheet of a medical run through, blood pressure, weight, and eye check-ups. I went back to the customer service area again where I then merged to the queue of all the applicants there. Since some people do not prefer the online appointment, I think I jumped 2 queue lines since I think I was the only one who did it at that time. Not sure but I was with some PWDs and Seniors at one moment. I was asked if I was a PWD but when I told them online appointment.. they honored it.

The renewal cost P653.

So all in all, I paid P1,053 and it only took me about 30-45 minutes to renew my driver's license. It is actually a great progress if you have experienced the past systems so well done Land and transportation office (LTO). I cannot wait for more developments in the years to come. By the way, it is true that now it is valid for 5 years.. so why not celebrate right? lol. I am just joking.


STEP 3
Enjoy your license

As the poster at their entrance says, "Having a driver's license is not a right, it is a privilege". So make it count. If you want to see the video version of this post feel free to watch it here - down below.

  20. Oh wow! The process is so simple there! Back in India, the license renewal for driving is not this easy. You have to physically go to the registration centre twice I think. My license is valid for 10 more years, so I don't think I really have to worry! :D

    This is awesome. I mean, going digital for faster processing of documents. Other than the convenience this provides, it also eliminates the "weasels" trying to make a buck by offering a quicker process in exchange for "under the table" fees.
