LTO Confirms Tesda NC-II as Requirement is Not Needed
The Land Transportation Office (LTO) clarifies that the agency is not requiring any national certificates for applying for student driving permits.
According to the Land Transportation Office (LTO), a fake news circulated online. Facebook post about the need for a National Certificate (NC) II in obtaining a Student Permit, and both will only be given exams for Non Professional and Professional.
LTO has clarified that the agency is not requiring any national certificates from the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) from those applying for student driving permits, contrary to posts circulating on social media.
While there are requirements for student permit applications, in accordance with law, the LTO explained that these do not include TESDA-issued NC II requirements.
“Totoong may pagbabago sa proseso ng pagkuha ng student permit at lisensya. Ito ay alinsunod sa Republic Act No. 10930, ang batas na nagpapahaba ng bisa ng lisensya at nagbibigay-parusa sa mga aksyon na lumalabag sa pag-isyu at aplikasyon nito, at sa Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) nito,” the LTO explained.
LTO added that the law requires the agency to form prerequisites and guidelines to ensure that only qualified and competent driver applicants with knowledge of road safety will be given licenses.
“Ito ay para i-angat ang kalidad ng paglilisensya sa mga karapat-dapat na drayber sa ating bansa, at upang masiguro ang kaligtasan sa mga lansangan at maiwasan ang disgrasya sa daan,” it added.
The LTO also admitted that they are still ironing out details and guidelines to be used in enforcing the new law. The Agency will issue an announcement regarding such changes.
