Driver’s License Requirements

Aching to drive your own car? Driving your own car will give you privileges that you won’t have with public transportation. It will allow you to carry whatever you want; make it easier for you to follow your hobbies; make your travel safer from would-be robbers and avert hold-up crimes; and it will enable you to go places that are just difficult to get to by bus, jeep, or tricycle.

To be able to drive your own motor vehicle here in the Philippines you’ll need a driver’s license from the Land Transportation Office (LTO).

A driver’s license is an official document authorizing an individual to drive a motor vehicle in the Philippines. The LTO issues three types of driver’s licenses: Student Permit, Non-professional driver’s license, and Professional driver’s license. In this article you will find driver’s licence requirements for all three types of LTO licenses.

 

Student Permit, Non-professional, and Professional driver’s licenses: What’s the difference?

Student Permit

A Student Permit is an official document authorizing an individual to drive a motor vehicle in the presence of a licensed driver. Getting a Student Permit is the first step to do before you can apply for a driver’s license. Click here to see the LTO Student Permit requirements.

Non-professional driver’s license

A Non-professional driver’s license is an official document that authorizes an individual to drive motor vehicles for private use only, and never for a lucrative purpose. If you plan to drive a private vehicle, or even a motorcycle for a private purpose only, a Non-professional driver’s license is perfect for you.

Professional driver’s license

A professional driver’s license is an official document that authorizes a person to drive public utility vehicles (PUV) such as tricycle, taxi, jeepney, bus, truck, etc., or become a chauffeur for a lucrative purpose. If you want to earn a living as a driver you will need a Professional driver’s license.
