The Land Transportation Office, is a government agency in the Philippines responsible for the registration and licensing of motor vehicles, as well as the implementation and enforcement of transportation laws and regulations.
The LTO offers a free theoretical driving course in the Philippines, which is intended to help individuals learn the rules of the road, traffic laws, and safe driving practices. The course covers a range of topics, including traffic signs and signals, road markings, defensive driving techniques, and basic vehicle maintenance.
The LTO’s free theoretical driving course is open to anyone who wants to learn more about driving in the Philippines, whether they are applying for a driver’s license or simply looking to improve their driving knowledge and skills.
This May 11 and 12, the Land Transportation Office (LTO) will provide preregistered student driver applicants with a free nationwide theoretical driving course (TDC).
The LTO on Wednesday said the complimentary TDC program is aimed to create chances for economically disadvantaged Filipinos to apply for a student permit.
“LTO recognizes that not all Filipinos have the financial means to cover TDC fees, which is why we have arranged for the provision of complimentary TDCs at our regional offices,” LTO Chief Jay Art Tugade said.
According to Tugade, the effort exemplified LTO’s goal to use associated driving schools to enhance the number of certified drivers on the road.
“While we can only accommodate a limited number of students, this initiative demonstrates the agency’s dedication to increasing the number of qualified drivers on the road, in partnership with our affiliated driving schools,” Tugade stated.
The implementation of free courses at all regional offices, will follow the introduction of the nationwide montly theoretical driving course for free at LTO’s offices, which coincides with LTO’s 111th founding anniversary.
“We wish to emphasize that the TDC is a prerequisite for all student permit applicants, and the agency is working diligently to make it accessible to those without the financial means to do so. This is an effort to discourage applicants from resorting to fixers. Engaging with fixers is not only a financial waste but also results in unqualified and unskilled drivers on our roads,” Tugaded noted.
