When we applied for our driver’s license, we came at the LTO center before 7 a.m. Guess what, there was already a long queue of applicants. Make sure you bring any food to grab a bite and a bottled water coz you never know when hunger strikes.

Getting LTO Student Permit License
Submit your documents to the LTO staff in an assigned window. The LTO staff will them check your documents and evaluate them. The staff will also encode your details in the LTO system upon approval of the officer.
Once approved, they will call you again in another window for photo and signature taking.
Wait a while for your name to be called in another window (Cashier). You need to pay the required fees in this step.
A Student Permit Card with the Official Receipt shall be released to the applicant. You are required to write your name and affix your signature in the appropriate Release Form.
In most cases, the issuance date of LTO student license will also be stamped on the release form.
That’s it. The procedure is simple, yet I suggest allotting a day for the application of your student permit and license because most LTO offices have long lines of applicants every single day. Do not forget for your LTO student license renewal. Good luck!
