As they say, there’s always a first time in everything. First time in school, first day at work, first day in your new home – always tough, because you have to do a lot of things.
This also applies if you are a new driver – meaning either you just turned seventeen and it’s now legal for you to drive (of course under the supervision of an adult with a proper driver’s license), or you are a new car owner. If you are a first-time driver, you also need to go through the process of getting a driver’s license.
It’s quite tedious, however, it’s really mandatory. I know you’re wishing that you can just learn to drive with a little help from your friends, then you can get away that easy – hell no. Sorry to say but before you can drive that baby out of your garage or out of the showroom, you need to have a proper driver’s license.
Now, Philkotse.com will help you deepen your understanding of driver's license in the Philippines, covering requirements, procedures and fees.
Driving for the first time can really be exciting! But, before you can even try, you must first have your driver's license!
Everyone has got to start somewhere, right? So for your long journey as a licensed motorist begin, you have to learn how to properly drive first and apply for a LTO student driver’s permit. This will allow you to do driving lessons with a professional driving school, with your parents or with an adult whom you trust and owns a proper driver’s license as well.
Some people may be doing the latter, but of course, it is still recommended to attend a formal driving school. They will also be able to assist you on the student driver permit. Equipping yourself with vital driving knowledge will save you from many unnecessary troubles, one of which is driver license suspension.
