LTO-Bayawan can now issue new driver’s License

DUMAGUETE CITY, Philippines — The Land Transportation Office (LTO) in Bayawan City, Negros Oriental province can now issue new driver’s licenses after it was given authorization by the LTO main office in Manila.

LTO-Bayawan District Office chief, Alberta Janine Lawas, confirmed on Tuesday that she received a copy of LTO Office Order No. 2017-217, signed by Assistant Secretary Edgar Galvante, authorizing the local office to process applications for new driver’s license.

The order also authorizes the installation of the Automated Driver’s License Examination System Facility (ADLES) in LTO-Bayawan.

Lawas thanked the LTO central office for finally giving her office the go-signal to process applications for new driver’s license, saying this will help people in far-flung areas in southern Negros Oriental. She said LTO-Bayawan previously catered only to applications for renewal of driver’s license and for a student permit.

With this latest development, motorists applying for a new driver’s license no longer have to travel to Dumaguete City, about 100 kilometers from Bayawan, for the purpose.

The issuance of new driver’s licenses by LTO-Bayawan will soon be operational once the equipment and peripherals are delivered and the operational and administrative requirements are in place, she said.
