Renewal Of A Professional Drivers License

No matter when you get your licence, the renewal of a professional drivers license must take place no more than 3 years later on your birthday. For example I got my license in June 2011, so it will renew on October 11 2013.

You Need To Go To: Any Licensing Center / Driver’s License Renewal Center /District Office with DL Transactions

To Make Application You:

1. Current Professional Driver’s License due to expire or expired but not more than two (2) years.

2. Duly accomplished Application Form for Driver’s License (ADL) [Download this form here:


3. Medical Certificate with Official Receipt (from LTO accredited or Government physician)

4. Negative drug test result (from a DOH accredited drug testing center or Government Hospital)


1. Proceed to the Customer Service Counter to get your checklist of requirements and secure a Driver’s License Application Form. (You can complete this form prior to transacting your business at the LTO.) Get a queue number and wait for your number to be called.
2. When your number is called, proceed to evaluator counter and submit all the required documents and have it checked for completeness and authenticity.
3. Proceed to the Photo taking /Signature Area to have your picture and signature taken when your name is called.
4. Proceed to the Cashier when your name is called to pay for the necessary fees and obtain an Official Receipt.
5. Proceed to the Releasing Counter, present the Official Receipt and claim the Card type License.


Fees and Charges:


License Fee Php. 350.00
Computer Fee 67.63
TOTAL 417.63



Please note that the rules say you can renew a license that has expired for up to two years, yet the fee structure allows for payments for licenses that have expired in excess of that time. I am unsure what that is about, but if we find out we will let you know.

If expired:
1 day to 1 year Php. 75.00
1 year & 1 day to 2 year 150.00
More than 2 years 225.00

      You can renew your license up to 2 years after its expiry date for the payment of a small fine. Beyond that you will have to re-sit both the practical and theory exams, as well as paying a fine. Get the full details by clicking here
