Aspiring Drivers Must Undergo At Least 15 Hours of Basic Driver Education, LTO Says
The Land Transportation Office said that they will require aspiring drivers to undergo at least 15 hours of basic driver’s education.
Earlier this week, LTO deputy director Edgar Valera said that all aspiring drivers must undergo at least 15 hours of basic drivers’ education in accredited schools to obtain a student permit starting April 2020.
LTO is already preparing the modules including proper driver discipline, reading traffic signs and signals, and updates regarding traffic rules and regulations. The modules also include local ordinances and national laws.
Aspiring drivers will undergo a 15-hour training program or two days of seminars regarding the traffic policy. The program is a part of the requirement in implementing the Republic Act No. 10930.
The law aims to extend the validity of the driver’s license for up to 10 years. The bill also introduced a new demerit system allowing the disciplinary actions towards motorists committing the same violation over and over again.
