Guide on LTO Non Pro Fee for Applicants for Driver’s License
LTO NON PRO FEE – Here is a guide on how much you must prepare in getting a non-professional driver’s license at the Land Transportation Office (LTO).
In most countries, drivers are required to get a driver’s license before driving any type of vehicle. In the Philippines, you can apply for a driver’s license at the Land Transportation Office. More commonly called LTO, it is a non-government agency that issues driver’s license and registers the vehicles in the country.
Those who want to apply for a driver’s license must get a “Student Permit” first. This allows the individual to drive the vehicle provided that he or she is with someone who holds a non-professional or professional driver’s license. After a month with no violation, the applicant may apply for a non-pro or pro driver’s license.
The non-professional driver’s license allows a person to drive private vehicles only. The professional driver’s license allow the person to drive a vehicle for a living. This is required for drivers of public utility vehicles (PUVs) like jeepney, taxi, cab, bus, tricycle, and transport network service.
To apply for a non-professional driver’s license at the LTO, the following are considered:
- Filipino at least 17 years of age

- Holds a Student Permit
- Physically and mentally fit for driving a vehicle
- Can communicate in English and Tagalog
- Must pass the exam administered by the LTO
- Have undergone at least eight hours of practical driving lessons
In applying for a non-professional driver’s license, you must prepare for the LTO non pro fee. Undeniably, it is higher now compared before but most offices offer a 10-year validity of the driver’s license.
Based on an article on Moneymax, you must prepare at least P1,500 for the LTO non pro fee aside from the payment for the practical driving lesson. The said amount is intended for the license fee, the application fee, medical exam, and the vehicle rental for the actual driving exam.
