“Extended ang validity hanggang October 31, 2020 para sa mga aplikante ng lisensya na may Student Permit na nag expire nang Community Quarantine at tumuntong sa edad na 21 habang umiiral ang nasabang Community quarantine,” LTO said in a Facebook post.

The agency earlier announced that the validity of vehicle registration will be extended in order to avoid congestion in its offices amid the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic.

In an advisory issued on Monday, the LTO said that the registration validity of motor vehicles with plate numbers ending in 6, 7 and 8 will be extended until October 30, 2020 while those ending in 9 and 0 will be given until December 31, 2020.
