I come to PH several times a year and I have a UK driving licence which I believe is valid for up to 90 days. My question is: I am never here more than 90 days, usually 4-6 weeks, but I do go over 90 days in the year. Does my 90 days validity start again each time I enter the country?
I am from NZ with International licence valid for 1 yr. LTO only recognises it for 3 months from date of entry. They said I need 1 yr visa to apply for Phil licence. I only have 6 mnth visa, the max. tourist visa. I am in process of applying for SRRV to get 1 yr min. visa and then I will be able to go back to LTO to apply for Phil lic. Inmean time I hang the keys up. Bill
richard88 I don’t understand the point of these restrictions on driver licenses. A RP drivers license is good in Canada, no time limit. A foreigner is generally a much better driver when it comes to the rules of the road. Of course there are no tow trucks anywhere except in Manila since the traffic there is as bad as it can get without car breakdowns. It makes it seem like the roads are private. Filipino’s only with a few exceptions.
Actually you are wrong, Any foreigner driving in Canada can use their foreign drivers licence for 90 days, after that he/she need s to apply for a drivers license in whatever provence they are in. That's even moving from province to province, Well, at least in BC that's the law.
Paminta Thanks for correcting the information I was given at the BC Access centre when I inquired about my wife’s RP drivers license and was told “she can use it”. I think the 90 day allowance is set according to establish residency and qualify for BC Medical, etc.
An International license is of zero validity and a waste of money. All it is is an English translation of your home country license and has no validity unless you are also in possession of your home country DL.
