LTO Extends Validity of Driver’s Licenses

by Jal Cutaran  May 3, 2022

After extending the validity of motor vehicle registrations expiring last month, it is no surprise that the Land Transportation Office (LTO) is also extending the validity of driver’s licenses expiring during the months of April and May.

LTO Extends Validity of Driver’s Licenses

Through a memorandum, the Land Transportation Office (LTO) has advised all its offices to extend the validity of driver’s permits (SP), driver’s licenses (DL), and conductor’s licenses (CL) that are due to expire from April 1 to May 31, 2022.

And so, driver’s permits (SP), driver’s licenses (DL), and conductor’s licenses (CL) that expired last month are still valid up to June 30, 2022. Meanwhile, said licenses expiring this month of May will be valid up to July 31, 2022.

The reason, just like before, is “to curb the transmission or spread of COVID-19 virus and observance of social distancing and other health and sanitary protocols to protect the health and safety of our employees as well as clients in LTO.”

For those who missed our recent post about the extension of the registration deadline for motor vehicles with plate numbers ending in 4, you still have until May 31, 2022 to renew your vehicle registration.

    My wife cannot renew her drivers licence because according to LTO officers here in LTO Carcar Cebu there is an alarm on.my wifes’ licence. The alarm was raised in Zamboanga Sibugay, Ipil, Region 9. Firstly, my wife has never been apprehended in her 14 years driving experience. Secondly, we have never been to Zamboanga Sibugay or any place in Mindanao.
    We have already exhausted all.means to clear my names wife but to no avail. Please advise us on what todo regarding this.

    How about the driver’s license that expired in Feb 2022 that was not renewed on its expiry date due to pandemic Covid 19 and also being a senior citizen?
    For your assistance.

    Since this was extended posted & published, will LTO refund the penalties charged to drivers already processed renewed their DL which was expired 21 April & renewed April 25

    I hope LTO will allow registration options for motor vehicles valid for 3 to 5 years to de-clog its offices and smoke testing activities.
