    Good day, tsikoters! 'Di ko alam kung ito ba tamang category for this question. Wala kasi ako makitang ibang thread na pwede sumagot sa question ko. Anyways, ask ko lang sana if anong driving school ba ang maganda? Yung tipong detailed yung pagtuturo nila sa inyo. Mas trusted ba yung mga LTO accredited? Any tips and advise?

    Also, I just wanna know if okay lang ba na magenroll ako sa driving school with Manual course, then self-study nalang sa mga A/T?

    Salamat tsikoters!

    structured naman ang mga driving schools. meron handout and then hands on. important na hindi tinuturo yun vehicle owners manual. dapat binabasa yan. if you have a new car you can find it immediately. if you bought a 2nd hand car, chances are the seller lost it. because thats how dumb they are.

    May nabasa kasi akong isang reviews sa isang driving school na hindi daw maayos ang turo, kumbaga para ka lang tinuruan talagang magdrive without proper structured lesson. I check the said driving school, cheapest among those driving school na talagang kilala na. Kaya lang nagdalawang isip ako dahil sa review na nabasa ko.

    Naisip ko din na baka may effect sa LTO yung "LTO Accredited" driving school once na kukuha ka ng driver's license.

    i A1'd, many years ago.
    i learned MT there. and if one knows bump cars at the perya, then AT comes "naturally" to those already comfortable with MT.
    LTO accredited doesn't mean much, as driving school isn't even a requirement to take the driving license exams. but "there are perks..."

    it would be nice if one already had his car. that way, he can choose from among the stable of the driving school's cars, that which is most similar to his car.

    How about Smart Driving School? As per checking, isa sila sa top driving school dito sa pinas. Dyan ko kasi balak magenroll.

    Ano po yung "perks" sa pagenroll ng driving school aside from their usual promo na free petron card I guess?

    Smart driving school offers "assistance" (hint: fixer) in getting LTO license. Wala bumabagsak sa written and practical exam ng LTO na galing dyan.

    Ang test paper na binibigay sa students, may marks at alam na ng Lto yun kaya pasado agad.

    Sa practical exam naman, papasok lang kayo lahat na "alumni" sa isang aircon room, tambay ng ilang minuto then tapos na. Antay na for the license.

    Galing ako Smart Driving. Mas mahal A1 ng halos doble. Okay naman sila, pero di mo naman matututunan lahat kasi limited time. Kumbaga, ituturo nila sayo ang lesson per session, bahala ka na magpractice. Sabi ng instructor ko, 30 hrs ang kelangan (yun din yung complete curriculum nila I think). Pwede na daw 15 hrs if you have your own car kasi makakapagpractice ka. That's 1k per hr (last year). Yes, they do license assistance. Kapag pasado ka sa instructor, di mo na kelangan magpractical exam sa lto kasi your instructor is vouching for you. In my case my instructor thought I wasn't ready so di niya ako nirecommend for license.

    Is this for real? Pero may addtl fees bang kailangan bayaran sa loob ng LTO since "fixer" yung so-called assistance nila? Or wala na? Ang sabi kasi ng Smart Driving School may sasama daw sakin sa LTO, but not sure kung kailangan ko din pumila gaya nung mga ibang nagapply or may "priority lane" sila dun.

    If hindi ka nirecommend do you still able to get your license? Plan ko pa naman is 10hrs lang ang kunin + 2hrs free dahil sa promo nila ngayon.

    Tawang tawa ako sa last sentence

    I still could not fathom why owner's manual could get lost if it just usually stays in the glovebox.

    If i were to buy a 2nd hand car and the owner lost his/her owner's manual, i would automatically assume that the car was flooded.

    Hmmm...mas mahal pag magpapaassist ka sa smart driving. May schedule sila, like for example ang kitaan 7am. May nakasabay ako dumating sila isang batch ng millennials so naisip ko sa driving school sila. There are blogs sharing their experience in detail, Google is your friend

    I have a car to practice with tsaka prior dun tinuruan nako ng kapatid ko. By the time I applied for a license, prepared nako.

    I was dreading the practical exam but trust me, hindi ka dun dapat magworry. Kung marunong ka na talaga dapat kaya mo yun. There are videos on YouTube about the practical exam in LTO East Ave. Practice the reverse parking. Ang tricky yung written exam, if di mo mapasa uuwi ka na, di ka na magdadrive. And maraming bumabagsak. Good thing is, you can review for it, the reviewers are on the LTO website. Don't just review the non-pro, reviewhin mo din professional and motorcycle kasi may kasamang questions.

    You can skip all these and resort to dealing with a fixer. I don't suggest it. Ikaw din talo. May benefit yung pagpeprepare for getting a license, sa daan mas prepared ka na din.
