What is the LTO’s online ‘LTMS’ Portal?

The Land Transportation Management System (LTMS) Portal is the Land Transportation Office’s (LTO) new one-stop online shop that was first made public midway through 2020. It was initially launched to allow motorists to carry out contactless and online transactions with the LTO in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, the Portal has become an essential part of the LTO’s day-to-day transactions, as motorists are now required to access the website prior to going to an LTO office for services such as driver’s license renewals. You can watch the clip below for more details.

How do I register for an LTMS Portal account?

Start your registration process by accessing the official LTMS Portal website. You’ll see a ‘Register Now’ button there, from which you’ll find the ‘Enroll as an Individual’ option. Regardless of whether or not you’re already a driver’s license holder, you’ll be allowed to sign up.

After filling up the registration form and providing the necessary documents, a verification link will be sent to your email address. Failure to verify your account within 24 hours will result in the automatic deletion of your new account. Upon verification, you’ll be asked to set a new password, then voila—you have an LTMS account.

What kinds of services does the LTMS Portal offer?

You can apply for a new student permit, driver’s license, or conductor’s license via the LTMS portal. You can also renew existing permits or licenses through the website.

The Portal provides access to the new Driver’s License Renewal Course, wherein motorists may both review for and take the Comprehensive Driver’s Education (CDE) exam. Examinees who get a score of 50% or higher or answer at least 13 out of the 25 questions correctly will be able to acquire a CDE certificate which will be needed for license renewals.

You shouldn’t be worried about taking the exam, though, as there are a handful of audio-visual presentations accessible through the LTMS Portal. The several hours’ worth of videos contain all the information you’ll need to ace the CDE Exam.
