MANDATORY DRIVER’S EDUCATION SA MAGRE-RENEW NG LISENSIYA INALMAHAN NG SOLON
HINIMOK ni Cagayan de Oro Rep. Rufus Rodriguez ang Department of Transportation at Land Transportation Office na ibasura ang pagsalang sa driver’s education ng mga magre-renew ng lisensiya.
Sinabi ni Rodriguez na ang pagsalang sa driver’s education ay panibagong source lamang ng red tape at harassment.
Sa kanyang House Resolution No. 2325, iginiit ni Rodriguez na walang probisyon sa Republic Act No. 10930 na nagmamandato ng certification ng completion ng comprehensive driver’s education o CDE bago makapag-renew ng lisensiya.
“The Supreme Court has repeatedly ruled that the spring cannot rise higher than its source and implementing rules must conform to the language of the law,” pahayag ni Rodriguez.
“This will be an additional expense for the Filipino people, which is an added burden especially during a pandemic,” dagdag ng kongresista.
Ang CDE materials ay maaaring makuha sa LTO Portal’s website at LTO offices o sa LTO-Accredited Driving Schools.
“While it is reported that this requirement is free if it is done through the LTO portal, it is also reported that if through driving schools, it would cost around P1,000 to P3,000,” paliwanag ni Rodriguez.
“There is a need to look into this as the LTO needs to explain this unnecessary burden to the driving public. The LTO needs to properly explain their basis for imposing said requirement, and they need to prove that the correct legal processes were complied with in all steps of the preparation process,” giit pa ng mambabatas.
Inihain din ni Rodriguez ang House Bill No. 10430 upang ibasura ang seksyon sa R.A. 10930 na ginamit na batayan ng LTO para sa requirement upang maiwasan na ang kalituhan.
