Have no time to renew your driver's license during the weekdays? The Land Transportation Office (LTO) has some good news for you.
Under the LTO's Memorandum Circular No. 2019 – 2167, the gov't agency has authorized all of its Driver's License Renewal Offices (DLROs) located in malls nationwide to be open on Saturdays starting this June.
According to the LTO, this was done in order to 'fully maximize the accessibility and availability of our services to the public in malls'. This means all DLROs are required to operate and process applications and renewals of driver's licenses, as well as issue student permits on Saturdays.
The LTO did not state which exact DLROs are part of the new policy. However, do expect the DLROs situated in Robinsons Malls to be open for business every Saturday starting this month. A list of LTO's DLRO's in Robinsons Malls are listed below.
The LTO also reminded those that wish to have their applications / renewals processed faster, can do so by setting up an appointment at www.lto.net.ph. There, new applicants and existing license renewals can set their desired date and time via the LTO's Personal Appointment and Scheduling System (PASS).
With M.C. No. 2019 – 2167 in play, driver's license holders that are not able to renew on weekdays can now do so without having to file for a leave from work. In addition, students that are looking to apply and take driving lessons in malls can now easily get a student's permit in relative comfort.
