Clarification: Sec. Tugade's Driver's License Application Only For Demonstratio

This is to clarify the issue regarding the issuance of a driver’s license card to Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade during the rollout of the plastic cards with 5-year validity yesterday, Aug. 30, 2017 at the LTO main office in Quezon City.

Foremost, Secretary Tugade applied for a driver’s license card for DEMONSTRATION PURPOSES ONLY.

Secretary Tugade only wanted to test how fast the new system is in renewing/applying for a driver’s license, from encoding of the driver’s data into the system up to the printing of license cards.

In fact, he was clear in saying that he intentionally placed errors in the application form, which demonstrates that his purpose was not to get a license but to see and check if the system is efficient, and see for himself how long an encoder rectifies such a mistake.

Please also note that after the demonstration, Secretary Tugade instructed LTO Chief Edgar Galvante to immediately erase his data in the system and cancel the license issued to him.

After the demonstration, Secretary Tugade likewise recommended to the LTO chief to study how to minimize human (manual) intervention on the part of LTO personnel in the processing of driver's license application so as to minimize, if not eliminate, "fixing" and corruption.

We hope this clears any confusion.

Thank you.
