There are road regulators in every country. In the Philippines, it is the Land Transportation Office, more popularly called LTO, that takes charge of the issuance of driver’s license to individuals who have passed the examination and are qualified to drive a vehicle.


Aside from issuing a driver’s license, it is also at the LTO where vehicles must be registered and the registration as well as the driver’s license have their own sets of validity period. They must be renewed prior or on the date of the expiration to avoid penalties.

The Land Transportation Office also crafted the rules and regulations in driving for road safety. It has set an updated list of the LTO Violation Fee 2024 that drivers and vehicle owners must adhere to not only to prevent penalties but for the safety of everyone on the road.
