MANILA (Mabuhay) – The Land Transportation Office has waived the 150-day validity period of temporary driver’s licenses until a shortage of materials for license cards is resolved.
The LTO announced in a memorandum dated Friday that the validity period of temporary driver’s licenses (TDL) will be disregarded and “the expiry date of the driver’s license indicated therein shall be considered as the TDL’s lifespan/validity period.”
LTO enforcers and deputized agents were instructed to refrain from apprehending drivers with expired TDLs.
Licensing Centers/District Offices and Driver’s License Renewal Centers (DLRC) will set-up hotlines and notices to inform the public of the card’s availability. (MNS)
