The Land Transportation Office has further extended until Dec. 31 the validity of expired driver’s licenses.
In an announcement, the LTO said that its clients whose student permit, driver’s license, or conductor’s license expired due to quarantine restrictions will have until the end of the year to renew.
This extension is also given to clients who have not yet renewed the registration of their vehicles, it added.
The LTO issued the extension after the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) issued a resolution allowing those aged 17 to 21 and 60- to 65-years-old to go out after months of community lockdown.
“The LTO is now ready to serve those in the said age bracket. Senior citizens, aged 60 to 65, will remain a priority in all of our offices,” the agency said.
It also assured the public that health and sanitation protocols would be strictly enforced in its offices.
The LTO appealed to the public to not wait for the last day of extension of the renewal of motor vehicle registration to avoid congestion and further curb the transmission of the virus.
