The LTO will reopen licensing centers in Bohol, according to NegOr.
CEBU CITY, Philippines – The Land Transportation Office in Central Visayas (LTO-7) announced on Wednesday that full-service licensing centers will reopen in the provinces of Bohol and Negros Oriental to accommodate new applications and renewals of driver’s licenses.
As part of their endeavor to decongest the main LTO offices in both provinces, LTO-7 regional director Victor Emmanuel Caindec stated Assistant Secretary Edgar Galvante, the agency’s chief, has authorized the request to reopen the centers for these provinces.
Caindec requested the reactivation of licensing renewal functions and issuance of student permits in the Driver’s License Renewal Offices (DLROs) in Robinsons Dumaguete in Calindagan, Dumaguete City, and Island City Mall in Tagbilaran City in a letter sent to Galvante through LTO executive director lawyer Romeo Vera Cruz in March of this year.
These offices were previously shuttered, according to Caindec, due to a low volume of clients due to the restricted services provided.
After the local government units in Dumaguete City and Tagbilaran City imposed lockdowns because to the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic, the centers were ordered shuttered in September of 2020.
“Caindec said Galvante granted his request and told him to “make the necessary arrangements to permit the immediate reopening of the stated DLROs” as a full-service license office.
He added the finishing touches are being applied to the new Bohol Licensing Center, which will be the island’s fifth office to offer new licensing services.
Jagna District Office-Garcia Hernandez is located in West Canayaon, Garcia-Hernandez; Tagbilaran City District Office is located in R. Enerio St. Dampas Road, Tagbilaran City; Talibon Extension Office is located in Poblacion, Talibon; and Tagbilaran DO Licensing Ext. (Alturas Mall) is located in Poblacion II, Tagbilaran City.
“He stated that the Bohol Licensing Center is expected to open in the second or third week of May 2022.
