  1. @ ScottH – Do you think the dumb Kano face thing will work if I pull out my PI driver’s license that expired in 1988? At least it shows the motorcycle rating.

  2. Your USA drivers lic. is good for 90 days after arriving,I have done this on three different trips last one i was there for three months and we were stoped three times at check points,one check point didnt know about 90 day deal when i told them all they said was ok.Every area is different on obtaining a lic, like in samar very few have lic. plates on the moter bikes.

  3. UJ, A couple of things,,,be prepared to fork over a couple of hundred extra P for a drug test, when i go my lic here in manila, the first thing I had to do was pee in a bottle, I believe it is separate from the LTO, but the LTO wouldnt see me till i have the drug free certificate. Start practicing your “dumb Kano” face also, I believe that the reason you need to bring your passport is that foriegn drivers lic are valid for 30 days upon entering the country, I know they checked my entry date on my passport. After that you have to take the test. BUT you know how things are here, hope either I was wrong or they let you slide…good luck 🙂

    1. That’s interesting Scott that you had to do that. Ted Kennedy just got his license here and all they made him do was show his license, show his passport and pay the fees. That’s all the lady at the LTO told me that I had to do also. I guess I’ll find out when the time comes. I don’t mind doing the pee test, but I don’t want to get involved in their ‘pay more peso’ war. I’m definitely over the 30 days.

      1. I got my PH dr. lisc over a year ago well past the 30 days mentioned but since i used a golf cart that LTO had told me previously needed no lis, or registration i had no worries on getting my drivers lis ,basically it wa for additional ID i still don’t drive andy registered vehicle in PH. I went down to LTO at Avelino and PidooShowed my passport and USA dr lisc. was told to cross the street get 2 parts copied then walk 3 buildings down from the copy shop gt the urine test done, to P20 and 20 mins to do all that returned with everything to Lto paid my non- proffessional dr’s fee , plus my buddy added Motorcycle to his PH lis, lol he never rode a bike in his life, no driving tests, no paper tests, sat around for our names to be called to get out photos taken , then out the door with new PH dr lisc.
