Duterte approves extension of driver's license validity to 5 years

02 Août 2017

2 signed the law extending the validity of passports to 10 years.

Under RA 10928, the public will now be issued with passports valid for 10 years while individuals under the age of 18 will be issued with passports valid for five years only.

RA 10930, meanwhile, extends the validity of drivers' license from 3 years to 5 years, reckoned from the birthdate of the licensee.

The new law also gives the issuing authority the ability to limit the period of validity to less than 10 years "whenever in the national economic interest or political stability of the country of the country such restriction is necessary".

When renewed, the drivers' license, whether professional or non-professional, will be given 10 years' validity as long as the license holder did not commit any violation of the Land Transportation and Traffic Code (RA 4136) and other traffic rules and regulations.
