LTO Taps DICT for Digital Version of Driver’s License

While the LTO is finding ways to deal with its dwindling supply of license cards, ranging from asking help from the National Printing Office to procure 5 million cards and extending the validity of driver’s licenses expiring from April 24 to October 31, the LTO said that they are working on a digital driver’s license with the DICT as another solution.

The details are still vague for now, but the LTO said that they will utilize the eGov Super App that the DICT is currently developing.

Currently, the LTO prints newly-issued driver’s licenses on paper while it figures out how it can address its current shortage on license cards.

By having a digital driver’s license, Tugade said that users can present this to law enforcement officers in case they are flagged down for a violation. Like the physical version, Tugade adds that the LTO digital driver’s license will have its own security features–on top of what the eGov Super App has to offer–to ensure that it is authentic and not counterfeit.

To recall, the DICT and LTO entered into an e-governance partnership last March to help the latter with its push for the digitalization of its services.
