LTO 15-Hour Theoretical Driving Course and How to Get Free TDC?

LTO Drivers Education Center nationwide with free TDC

What is Theoretical Driving Course? How to get free TDC?


To get a driver's license from Land Transportation Office (LTO), you must first get a Student Permit. According to Memorandum Circular 2019-2176 released by the LTO, to get a Student Driver's Permit, you must first enroll and attend a 15-hour Theoretical Driving Course (TDC) as one of the requirements. You can get the TDC at any LTO-accredited driving school, or you may also get it for free at the many LTO Education Centers nationwide.

In taking the Theoretical Driving Course, you need to attend the 15-hour seminar or classroom session which you could take online or via face-to-face classroom session. After taking the TDC, you just need to take and pass the TDC exam before you will be issued a TDC Certificate which is one of the requirements to apply and get a Student Driver's Permit.

List of LTO-accredited Driving Schools


If there is no LTO Drivers Education Center near your place and budget is not a problem, you may also enroll the Theoretical Driving Course at any LTO-accredited Driving Schools. This is what I did. I paid PHP 1,500 for the 15-hour TDC, plus PHP 200 for the TDC Certificate.

For the list of LTO Accredited Driving Schools, you may visit the LTO Website.

That's it! I hope this post help you in understanding how and where to get a Theoretical Driving Course.

  2. Bakit iisa ang lto education center SA Region 4A? Bakit wala SA Batangas? May connivance yata SA private driving schools. Tulungan nyo mga taong makuha Ng libreng TDC, etc.., at Di lamang mayaman ang pwede. Mag provide din Ng online courses Ng Di magastos at mahirapan ang kukuha. Mag provide Ng online exam at bigyan Ng certificate ang karapatdapat

  4. Like here in Batangas, kapag nag inquire sa LTO office about sa free TDC dun ka I refer sa Aluminos, Laguna Ng free TDC. Magkano Ang maging pamasahe papunta soon. Not reasonable

    One thing pa kelangan Ng practical driving lesson Bago makakuha Ng license. Dun sa accredited driving school, tanungin Kung marunong na. If marunong na magbayad pa din Ng mahal para sa certification.
