Table of Contents
To get a Comprehensive Driver’s Education (CDE) certificate, you need to apply and pass the CDE Validating Exam. The CDE validating exam is available in person at the LTO Driver’s Education Center in select offices or online through the Land Transportation Management SystemLTMS. To take the exam online, go to LTO’s LTMS Portal.
To pass the exam, you must have at least 13 correct answers out of 25 questions (50 percent rating) whether you are renewing a professional or non-professional driver’s license. The exam consists primarily of multiple-choice questions. Furthermore, the exam has no time limit and can be retaken immediately if you fail it.
If you pass the exam, you will be able to print your CDE Validating Exam Certificate, which you will need to present when renewing your driver’s license.
2. Secure a Medical Certificate
Get and fill out a medical evaluation form from window 1 (Approving/Cashier). You will provide the required information on this form and then leave the remainder to the medical examiner. Proceed to a medical examination at an LTO-accredited facility. Your physical characteristics, such as your weight, height, and eyesight, will be recorded here. All of these facts will be recorded in your driver’s medical evaluation form by the medical officer.
3. Submit the Documents
Once you’ve completed the driver’s medical evaluation form, you can submit it in window 1 along with your previous driver’s license and CDE certificate. Your license information will be retrieved from the system by the personnel. The license details will be displayed to you so that you can confirm whether all of the information is still correct or if any changes should be made. If no changes are required, move on to the next step.
Following the submission of all required requirements, proceed to the cashier and pay the applicable fees. The amount is Php 589 for both pro and non-pro license renewal. Expect additional fees if you are late and outside of the LTO’s grace period.
5. Biometrics and Photo
You will be directed to Window 3, where your fingerprints will be registered and your photograph will be taken. You’ll also be asked if you want to update your signature. You will then be asked to wait in the waiting area.
Wait for window 4 (Releasing) to call your name and hand you your renewed driver’s license. Once your license has been printed and is ready for release, you will be called to window 4 to sign the driver’s license release log. If you have no recorded violations from the start, you will be issued a license with a 10-year validity period.
