Driver’s license cards of around 30,000 applicants in Zamboanga peninsula may possibly be claimed this month.
The new driver’s license cards from the LTO Central Office are expected to arrive this week at the Land Transportation Regional Office 9.
Thirty-thousand (30,000) licenses are set to be delivered which will be immediately distributed to applicants through the ‘first-in, first-out’ policy.
The agency will release a public advisory as to who can receive them.
According to Atty. Aminola Abataon, regional director of LTO Region 9, it’s a huge reduction from their over 120,000 backlogs in the whole region.
“This has been a problem since last year. We have no cards to give. Starting this week, hopefully, there are supplies coming from Zamboanga Region 9 and for Zamboanga City, in particular, wherein we are already able to provide,” Atty. Abataon said.
He added that if the supply of driver’s license becomes normal, they will place claiming booths in malls so applicants would not have to go to their office.
“If the supplies have normalized, we will place claiming booths even here in malls. We will print and we will let the public claim it here.”
They will also open licensing office every Saturday and Sunday so more of our fellowmen will be served.
Meanwhile, LTO has asked for understanding from motorists whose issuance of licenses has long been delayed.
LTO has assured that the concerned agencies are doing everything they can to further hasten the distribution of the new driver’s license. — Dante Amento | UNTV News & Rescue

QUEZON CITY, Philippines – The Land Transportation Office (LTO) has launched today its online appointment and scheduling system.
The system will facilitate the faster renewal of driver’s license and registration of vehicles. LTO is in collaboration with a private IT firm Stradcom in implementing the project.
LTO said the system will shorten application and registration transactions to 45 minutes as compared to the long process of walk-in applications.
LTO will designate a special lane in all its district offices to accommodate those who have online appointments.
“Dito mag log-in ka lang i-set mo yung appointment mo and then pagpunta mo dun sa LTO sa area ng online duon aasikasuhin ka na lahat hindi kana magpapali-palipat ng window,” LTO’s Chief of IT Division Rector Antiga.
“In the new system, you just log-in and set your appointment. When you go to LTO, go to the online area where your concerns will be processed; no need to move from one window to another.)
LTO, however, clarified that the online appointment system only caters to the renewal of driver’s license and vehicle registrations, not to new or first-time applications.
The system is now operational in five LTO district offices in Muntinlupa, Pasig, Novaliches, Marikina and in LTO Central Office in Quezon City.
Those who wish to apply for appointment may visit www.lto.gov.ph. Just click “LTO Online Pass” on the menu and fill up the appropriate application form. — Joan Nano | UNTV News & Rescue
