Finally: LTO is Issuing Driver’s License Cards Once Again

After months of facing a crisis where LTO has to issue driver’s licenses on paper due to a card shortage, the agency appears to have resolved the issue once again. LTO has started issuing driver’s license cards starting April 16, and the new batch of cards they have procured should be able to solve their backlog including those who had driver’s licenses expiring on April 1, 2023.


This announcement goes in line with their previous advisory where the LTO extended the validity of driver’s license cards until April 2024 when they address the card shortage. To go along with this positive development, the LTO has issued an advisory detailing the schedule of renewal and issuance of driver’s license cards.

Those who have driver’s licenses that expired from April 1 to August 2023 have until April 30 to renew their license or claim the card version if they were issued a paper license. Those with licenses that expired from September 1 to December 31, 2023, have until May 31 to renew, and those who have licenses that expired from January 1 to March 31, 2024, have until June 30 to renew.

As for those who have licenses expiring from April 1 onwards, they will follow the usual deadline for renewing driver’s licenses.
