How to Replace Lost LTO Drivers License: Fee and Requirements

An officemate of mine lost her two mobile phones, bag, car key and wallet with PhP500.00 inside (quite an amount already knowing her), company ID, her ATM cards, credit cards and LTO drivers license.

Losing money and valuables is already a pain particularly the car key but it's also a pain just to call up credit card issuer banks and ATM cards for cancellation plus the replacement drivers license at the Land Transportation Office (LTO)

Here's the procedure how to apply for replacement drivers license at the LTO:

1. Prepare an affidavit of loss indicating the circumstances of the lost of the LTO drivers license including as much detail as your drivers license number (if available). Tip: include the details of other cards and items too as they may require an affidavit of loss too (an affidavit of loss costs as cheap as PhP50.00 if you prepared it and have it stamped to as high as PhP200.00 if you allow them to prepare everything for you)

2. Go to the nearest LTO office (in Makati there's an LTO office at MRT Ayala Station, there's another at Guadalupe). There's also LTO branches at Robinsons Galleria and SM City North EDSA (Northlink building)

3. Fill out the form, submit the requirements and pay the LTO drivers license replace fee of PhP475.00

4. Wait for your new drivers license. This whole process takes just about 15 minutes.
