After my debacle with the Pasig City Police last weekend, Ipromised to really visit LTO this week. You see, my driver's license expired on my birthday (march 31), but unfortunate circumstance got in the way (Bon and I fought days before my birthday). Shaken and stirred, I kinda got disoriented and even though we both have recovered from the incident, I never really got the chance to renew my license. In fact, just lask week, I realized what had happened and so I really scheduled monday of this week to accomplish it.
Unfortunately, the damn Pasig Police did not know any of that drama so when he caught me making an illegal right turn during a "red light", he scolded me when he found out that I had been driving with an expired license. My tears and panic attack mode worked again --- he let me go without a ticket but with a very guilty conscience. Miss planner failed big time and I could not believe what happened. I've always been efficient with these things. I renew two licenses every three years so I am so used to it already.
Anyway, I finally got my license renewed. I had it done at the LTO license renewal center at SM Hypermart beside Tiendesitas. I chose to go there because everyone says it's the best place right now, and I agree! The place is air conditioned, the people are nice (maybe because they're comfortable and not exhausted) and the whole process was quick.
I would not suggest for you to go there though, because everyone might start going there and change things (just kidding).
but really, go there the next time you have to renew your license. it's hard to get bored because there's lots to do while waiting for your turn (go grocery shopping, visit bench fix, grab a bite to eat). remember: SM Hypermart beside Tiendesitas. They're open from 9am to 6pm!
