Drug test for driver’s license
The Land Transportation district offices in Negros Oriental have resumed the implementation of the mandatory drug testing for new and renewal of applications of drivers’ licenses effective Wednesday.
The resumption came after LTO Region 7 OIC director Arnel Tancinco issued an office order Wednesday, directing all LTO district offices in Central Visayas to require applicants for driver’s license to undergo drug testing as ordered by a regional trial court in Cebu, Alberta Janine Lawas, chief of the LTO District Office in Bais City, Negros Oriental, said yesterday.
Tancinco’s directive was based on the court order issued by Judge Hermes Montero of the Regional Trial Court Branch 59 in Toledo City, Cebu, dated October 16, that held in abeyance a memorandum dated June 27, 2013 issued by DOTC/LTO Assistant Secretary Virginia Torres on the repeal of the mandatory drug testing for issuance of the driver’s license pending the final decision of a civil case.
