For emigrating Filipinos who wants to get a driver’s license in a different country, you might need to get an LTO/DFA red ribbon authenticated driver’s license to prove your driving history, (although this will depend on the country or province that you’re going, in my case, British Columbia doesn’t need a red-ribbon authenticated certificate anymore, they will based it on the date of issue on your driver’s license.
My husband and I still went to LTO and DFA to get one, just in case we would be needing it in the future. These are the steps we did:
- Go to LTO Main Branch East Ave, window 10, it’s right beside the chapel. We were there around 1150am, done by 1205pm. Bring your driver’s license and Original Receipt, plus xerox copy of both.. Fee is 100 pesos, no receipt given (it will be attached with your certificate when you get it from DFA).
- They will give you a claim stub, which you need, to claim in DFA Aseana Macapagal Blvd exactly a week after.
- At DFA Aseana, proceed to Gate 2, look for the drop box where you’ll drop the claim stub at the proper slot. Wait for someone to call your name, they’ll tell you to bring an ID and proceed to either window 5 or 7.
- You will then check if the printout contains your info, check if all are accurate. After that, proceed to cashier, which is very near the exit.
- After paying, give the receipt to window 9, then again, wait for your name to be called. (100 pesos)
- Check if info is correct. You’re done (total time in DFA was roughly 30 minutes).
