Guide To Avail LTO’s Free Theoretical Driving Course

-

After requiring a Comprehensive Driver’s Education Certificate before granting a driver’s license renewal, the Land and Transportation Office now offers a free 15-hour Theoretical Driving Course nationwide!

What is Theoretical Driving Course (TDC)?

The 15-hour Theoretical Driving Course is one of the requirements for getting a student-driver permit, according to the LTO’s Memorandum Circular 2019-2176. Beginning in 2020, new drivers applying for a student permit will be required to complete a 15-hour Theoretical Driving Course program, with the goal of ensuring that driver’s licenses are issued to disciplined individuals with above-average driving skills and extensive knowledge on how to keep the roads safe, develop a better driving attitude, gain a more technical understanding of road signage, and develop a clearer driver intuition.

Moreover, the 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 starts the class.

How to avail of a free TDC?

All you have to do is schedule an appointment at your nearest LTO Drivers Education Center. Inquire about free TDC enrollment on the official Facebook sites you plan to visit. Please see the table below.

Meanwhile, for those who like to avail themselves of the TDC in the Driver’s Education Center of LTO NCR-WEST Regional Office, LTO Las Piñas Licensing Extension Office, or LTO Pasay Licensing Office, you may fill up an online form posted weekly on their official Facebook page.
