MANILA, Philippines – The Land Transportation Office (LTO) in Metro Manila has accredited a total of 77 clinics for the new policy when applying for drivers' license.
In December 2018, the LTO released Memorandum Circular 2018-2157 requiring electronic medical certificates from clinics, to better streamline drivers' license applications.
The new policy covers all applications for student-drivers' permits, and drivers' or conductors' licenses.
This process requires clinics to transmit the medical certificate directly to LTO through an online platform. The entire process should take about 8 minutes.
For Metro Manila, the implementation of the new policy started on January 7. (READ: Do you know how to apply for a driver's license?)
