House leader wants removal of driver’s education requirement for license renewals


According to Deputy Speaker Rufus Rodriguez, he called the Department of Transportation, specifically the Land Transportation Office (LTO) for the removal of the comprehensive driver’s education (CDE) course when renewing a driver’s license. He added that it was another burden for Filipinos.  

According to House Resolution No. 2325, the lawmaker from Cagayan de Oro City stated that the requirement was unnecessary, and it did not even have a legal basis.

“There is no provision in the law which explicitly states that a certification for a CDE is required for renewing a driver’s license,” Rodriguez said.

“The Supreme Court has repeatedly ruled that the spring cannot rise higher than its source and implementing rules must conform to the language of the law,” he added.

A House leader has also filed House Bill 10430, aiming to repeal certain provisions of Republic Act 10930, which the LTO has used to justify the CDE requirement.

“Toward this end, the conduct of theoretical and practical examinations, among others, must sufficiently measure the competency of drivers and must be designed to the type of license applied for its corresponding restrictions: Provided, That for professional drivers, the tests must be appropriated to the vehicle and type of service the applicant intends to operate.”

Rodriguez argues that the requirement was unnecessary and burdensome for drivers to acquire student permits and to renew their licenses.
