Apply for a driver's license, check your demerit points, and more at LTO's new online portal
The Land Transportation Office (LTO) has just made a big step towards providing its services through online means. To better serve the public and rid of fixers, the LTO has officially put up the Land Transportation Management System, aka the LTMS Portal.
After a year of testing, the LTO is now asking the public to register at the LTMS portal, allowing them to avail themselves the wide array of services online.
Through the LTMS portal, users can now check the requirements for a student permit/driver's license, keep track of their transactions, view possible violations, and even update their current profile. Users can also fill out an online application form for a new driver's license, student permit, and conductor's license. There's even an option to attach a medical certificate to make things easier for applicants.
Need to read up on the driver's manual before taking the LTO's theoretical exams? The LTMS portal also has an e-Learning feature where applicants and permit/license holders can learn about or brush up on the various driving fundamentals. These include road courtesy/safety, motor vehicle registration, land transportation-related laws, and the fines/penalties for violations.
The LTMS portal even has a practice theoretical exam which can allow applicants to test just how much they've learned and remembered from reading up on the e-Learning services.
Not sure how much you'll have to pay for a new license, license renewal, or changing of license classification? The LTMS Portal covers that as well so you'll know how much you'll need to pay before going to your nearest LTO driver's license renewal office (DLRO).
In case you need to remind yourself how many demerit points or violations you have incurred, the LTMS portal keeps track of that as well. It even shows unsettled payments and the history of violations/demerits of a license holder. For convenience, motorists can now transact online to settle pending violations. That means you no longer have to visit an LTO office to pay fines.
“As part of the LTO’s digital transformation, the LTMS portal will give online service 24/7, allow transactions anytime and anywhere, is customer-centered, seamless with virtually no human intervention allowed, and paperless. It is a powerful tool for our clients to use as they need it and wherever it is convenient,” said LTO Asec. Edgar Galvante.
