License renewal now possible Saturdays

Motorists can now renew their driver’s license on Saturdays beginning June 2019.

Under Memorandum Circular 2019-2167, the Land Transportation Office (LTO) on Tuesday directed all Driver’s License Renewal Offices (DLROs) in various malls around the country to operate and process applications for renewal of driver’s license and issuance of student permits on Saturdays.

“To fully maximize the accessibility and availability of our services to public in malls, effective June 2019, all DLROS are hereby required to operate and process applications for renewal of driver’s license and issue student permits on Saturdays,” the memorandum said.

The agency also said that in order to avoid penalties, motorists who would renew their driver’s license two months or 60 days earlier will be allowed.

Meanwhile, applicants can still use LTO’s online appointment thru its Personal Appointment and Scheduling System or PASS.
