private motorists and ‘Professional’ for those who drive for-hire or public utility
vehicles. for those who drive public utility vehicles. To get a license though, one has to
obtain a student permit rst. The student permit is the rst “license” that’s issued to
rst-time applicants and it can be upgraded to a non-professional license after one
month, provided you pass the Land Transportation O ce’s (LTO) written and practical
exam. Note that it will take you six months to upgrade a student’s permit if you plan to
get a professional license.  

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to apply for a student permit:
