Since I live in Marikina City, I selected the nearest satellite branch available. And it is here in the Marikina-Bayan area before the Marikina bridge going to and from Tanong (along J.P. Rizal St.). I arrived as per my schedule and immediately went to the customer service. I handed him my appointment documents then directed me to have my medical first located downstairs.
The medical cost P400.

It was fast as I only answered a single sheet of a medical run through, blood pressure, weight, and eye check-ups. I went back to the customer service area again where I then merged to the queue of all the applicants there. Since some people do not prefer the online appointment, I think I jumped 2 queue lines since I think I was the only one who did it at that time. Not sure but I was with some PWDs and Seniors at one moment. I was asked if I was a PWD but when I told them online appointment.. they honored it.
The renewal cost P653.

So all in all, I paid P1,053 and it only took me about 30-45 minutes to renew my driver's license. It is actually a great progress if you have experienced the past systems so well done Land and transportation office (LTO). I cannot wait for more developments in the years to come. By the way, it is true that now it is valid for 5 years.. so why not celebrate right? lol. I am just joking.

STEP 3Enjoy your license
As the poster at their entrance says, "Having a driver's license is not a right, it is a privilege". So make it count. If you want to see the video version of this post feel free to watch it here - down below.
