The Land Transportation Office (LTO) has announced on its official Facebook page that the 15-hour Theoretical Driving Course (TDC) is free at LTO Driver’s Education Centers.
Since April 6, 2020, new drivers applying for a student permit must undergo a 15-hour theoretical driving course program. The aim is to ensure that driver’s licenses are given to disciplined individuals with more than average driving skills and extensive knowledge of road safety and established laws.
What is the LTO’s mandatory theoretical driving course?
According to Memorandum Circular 2019-2176 implemented by the LTO since last year, any student applicant requesting a driver’s license is now required to go through a 15-hour theoretical driving course under certified instructors. The said course is divided into three sessions and will cover everything from traffic regulations to LTO mandated special laws. It must be completed within two years from the day an applicant started the course.
