How to Secure Your Drivers License in the Philippines

A drivers license is an official document permitting a specific individual to operate one or more types of motorized vehicles, such as a motorcycle, car, truck, or bus on a public road. Securing drivers license is hectic to some of us nowadays thus making way for Fixers to emerge. Fixers are the ones who will approach you and disclose to you they will quick track your application with expenses higher than the ordinary rate. Their charges ranges from P700.00 for the student license to P2, 500.00 for non-professional license and P3, 500.00 for the professional license. The ordinary preparing time will take 3-4 hours while fixers can slice it 1 hour to 1 and half hour as it were. This may appear to be advantageous yet it is “legitimate but fake”. Licenses procured through the fixers are physically lawful however not under the law. On the off chance that one needs to check his record in the LTO Management Information Division, no records of his data will be appeared.

In his term, President Rodrigo Duterte requested the delegated authorities of Land Transportation Office and other government offices to abandon their presents due on persistent defilement. It is realized that LTO is a standout amongst the most degenerate workplaces in the Philippines.
