Motorists with DLs that expired last Oct 2022 can still use them until Feb 28, 2022
Motorists with driver's licenses (DL) and student permits (SP) that expired last October won't have to pay a fine when they renew them at their nearest Land Transportation Office (LTO).
According to the government agency, the validity of DLs and SPs that expired last October 2021 has been extended until February 28, 2022. Moreover, the LTO said that medical certificates that expired from October 1 to October 31, 2021, are still valid until February 28, 2022.
Aside from extending the validity of DLs and SPs, the LTO shared that the motor vehicle (MV) registration for cars with plate numbers that end in "1" will be valid until February 28, 2022. This will give affected motorists more time to schedule their renewal amid the ongoing pandemic.
Last but not least, the MV registration of vehicles with plate numbers that end in 0 has been extended until January 31, 2022. However, this extension is only available for cars registered in Region 4B, Region 5, Region 6, Region 7, Region 8, Region 10, and CARAGA.
With the LTO extending the validity of DLs, SPs, and MV registrations for vehicles with license plates that end in 1 and 0, those that need to renew will have more time to schedule a visit to the LTO. But with the recent rise of active cases, the LTO wishes to remind everyone to follow the minimum health and safety protocols at all times.
