According to LTO, the move is aimed at erasing its current backlogs of around 900,000 licenses by October this year.

"Our effort to break a 30-year monopoly in driver’s license cards supply is finally about to bear fruit. It is unfortunate that we had to resort to temporary licenses for several months, but good governance principles demanded an open, fair and transparent bid. We will now work double time to normalize this service",  LTO chief Alfonso Tan Jr. said in a statement.

Meanwhile, Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) Secretary Joseph Abaya said, it is the intention of the government to bring the releasing of driver's license cards back to normal.

1. Angeles District Office
