This time, CebuTrip will introduce the steps and expenses for renewing a license for Philippine car license holder.
When renewing your license in Mactan Cebu, LTO (Land Transportation Office) in Island Central Mall is highly recommended for everyone because the place is not too crowded. It is located at 3 rd floor of the Island central mall.
Fill out your license information: name, address, contact details, blood type, marital status, country of origin, emergency contact name/ phone number and parent’s name.

For License Fee is Php 585 and Computer Fee is Php 67.63 total of Php 652.63, wi ll be paid upon receipt of the license.
Pay 700 pesos first then proceed to the room with the sign BMEAD which is next to LTO office and you will receive a number tag.
If it is not crowded, proceed immediately to Medical drug testing. Operation Time start at 7:00 am to 4:00 pm from Monday to Saturday.
Flow of Medical Drug Testing
1. Medical Check- blood type, height, weight, etc... are asked and entered into the system.
2. Then, check the eyesight while looking at the computer monitor.
3. Next, put the headphones on your ears for an Auditory Test. Answer from which ear the sound can be heard.
Finish in about 5 minutes.
Then proceed to urinalysis (drug test).
Instead of a paper cup like Japan, a plastic bottle with a small mouth is handed over, and urine is put in it and a lid is submitted.
Since there is no tissue paper in the toilet, we recommend that bring you own.
After receiving the test results, move to the next LTO and wait for the turn.
When the name is called, submit a document, take a photo ID & scan your fingerprint.
Then, check the information on the license to see if it is correct, and if there is no mistake, sign an electronic signature.
If it's not crowded, you can get a new license right away without waiting.
Upon receipt, you will pay a total license fee of 652.63 pesos.
The renewal process takes about 2 hours.
If there is no violation or deduction, it is valid for 5 years from the renewal date.
The process NOW is smooth compare before, you can receive right away your license.
All you need to bring is an existing driver's license and cash.
Things to keep in mind before going LTO
The LTO is strict when it comes to "Dress Code". For girls NO sando, tube, tank top, sleeveless, short and slippers and for the boys NO sando, shorts and slippers. Wear formal attire, so you can't waste your time in going there.
What happens if the driver's license expires?
First, renewal of license must be process before the expiration date, but if you forgot to update,
- A penalty of 75 pesos will be added for more than 1 day and less than 1 year .
- 150 pesos for more than 1 year and less than 2 years
- 225 pesos over 2 years.
It seems to be.
I am surprised at the low penalty, but even if it expires, it can be renewed if a penalty is paid.
