LTO extends drivers license validity

The Land Transportation Office (LTO) extended until December 31 the validity of expired licenses, whose owners were previously restricted from going outside due to the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic, according to a report by Manila Times.

In a virtual press briefing, Palace spokesman Harry Roque Jr. said the LTO had resumed services for those aged 17 to 21 and 60 to 65 years old following the government’s easing of age restrictions.

Speaking in Filipino, Roque said there would be no penalty in the application for renewal of driver’s and conductor’s licenses that have expired during the restriction period.

He said the extension was in anticipation of the expected influx of applicants for student permits and driver’s and conductor’s licenses.

Roque said the rules would apply only to those aged 17 to 21 and 60 to 65 years old whose licenses expired during the time they were supposed to stay at home, he said.

Roque also said that registration of vehicles with plate numbers ending in 6, 7, and 8 was extended until October 31, while registration for plate numbers ending in 9 and 0 was extended until December 31.

The Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) has allowed persons between 15 and 65 years old to go out of their houses in line with easing the movement restrictions in community quarantine areas.

Prior to the latest IATF-EID decision, the government required persons below 21 and above 60 years old to stay at home “at all times” except for essential activities like going to work or buying necessities in all community quarantine areas.

“The Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases on Thursday, Oct. 15, 2020, approved the adjustment of age-based stay-at-home restrictions. Persons from 15 to 65 years of age are now allowed to go out,” Roque said in an earlier statement.

“Local government units may impose a higher age limit for minors, depending on the Covid-19 situation in their respective jurisdictions,” he added.

The government recently agreed to further open the economy and public transportation to revive business activities and allow more people to go to work.

This came as the country recorded more than 360,000 cases of coronavirus. The number of people who recovered from the illness soared to 311,506 while those who died reached 6,747.
