The issuance of student driver’s permits will be suspended from July 1, the Land Transportation Office said Monday.

This is because applicants for a student’s permit should have already undergone a 15-hour theoretical driving course starting Aug. 3, said LTO chief Edgar Galvante. 

"Effective July 1, isu-suspend muna namin ang pag-iissue ng student permit kasi by August ire-require na na dapat yung nag-a-apply ng student permit went through this 15 hours of theoretical session," Galvante told Teleradyo. 

"Maraming mga eventually nakakakuha ng lisensya na hindi nila naiintindihan o hindi nila alam kung ano iyong mga rules and regulations on traffic, driving," he added. 

(There are many who eventually get their license without understanding the rules and regulations on traffic, driving.)
