What is the LTO’s mandatory theoretical driving course?

The theoretical driving course in LTO is a mandatory training program for student drivers who want to apply for a driver’s license. It is a 15-hour course that covers topics such as traffic rules and regulations, road safety, and special laws related to driving. The course is conducted by certified instructors from LTO or accredited driving schools. The course aims to ensure that driver’s licenses are given to disciplined individuals with more than average driving skills and extensive knowledge of road safety and established laws.

The TDC is offered for free at LTO Drivers Education Centers nationwide. It can also be taken at private driving schools for a fee.

    • Yes, the slots fill up quickly whenever the LTO-NCR opens them. If you urgently need a license, you should skip the free TDC and opt for the paid one, albeit at a cost of around 2,000 pesos for the 15-hour TDC and the certificate.
