The Land Transportation Office-9 is slated to meet doctors in the region in line with a new LTO directive changing the accreditation of medical practitioners who may conduct examination of drivers license applicants.

LTO-9 Director Atty Aminola Abaton said that they are planning to meet interested doctors who may want to be enrolled with their office for the new program after the observance of the Lenten season.

The meeting is in line with a new directive by the Department of Transportation changing the status of accreditation of medical practitioners affiliated with the LTO into an enrollment system.

In the new system, doctors are invited to present their license and other pertinent documents to the Land Transportation office prior to being enrolled as one of their accredited doctors.

The new system will enable all interested doctors to issue medical certificates to license applicants provided that they are enrolled with the LTO.

Interested doctors are required to submit the following prior to enrolment:  certified copies of their physician’s license from the Professional Regulatory Commission, certified copies showing their membership with the Medical Association of the Philippines and their business permits to show the area where they are practicing in Zamboanga Peninsula.  (Allen Abastillas)
