MANILA  The Land Transportation Office (LTO) will set standards to be implemented in all driving schools nationwide. This will include the hours that must be spent in learning how to drive.

This was the statement of LTO Chief Assistant Secretary Edgar Galvante in a hearing held on Wednesday by the House committee on transportation on seven bills that seek the extension of driver’s license validity from three years to five years.

“Iri-require natin ito na magkaroon ng basic or standard program instruction at number of  hours (We will require them to have a basic or standard program instruction at number of hours),” Asec. Galvante said.

Galvante said the LTO will begin issuing driver’s license with extended validity in October. This is based on the administrative order issued by the Department of Transportation and the LTO last year.

The committee formed a technical working group that would study the proposed law.  — Nel Maribojoc | UNTV News & Rescue
