WITH the availability of plastic driver’s licenses, the Land Transportation Office (LTO) on Tuesday called on drivers with expired licenses to apply for renewal.

LTO chief Vigor Mendoza II said these drivers must renew and claim their physical cards from April 16 to April 30, lest they could be penalized.

In a radio interview, Mendoza said only motorists with expired licenses from April to August 2023 may claim plastic cards because the available supply is just sufficient for them.

As of March 2024, the backlog was at 4.1 million driver’s license plastic cards.

“The supply side is because our supplier is not just sending us a wreck,” Mendoza said.

“In fact, what was supplied to us is 1.6 million out of 3.2 million so it’s not for the nation, on the supply side, so all the backlog of 4.1 million will be catered for in one blow,” he added.

He said the scheduled release was to prevent crowding and long lines on site.
