    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.
    Another thing to consider when buying a 2nd hand car. Haha thanks dito sa tip sir.

    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.

    Sabi kasi dun sa pinaginquiran ko na Smart Driving School, free assistance daw sila sa pagkuha ng student permit kaya napaisip ako kung need pa ba namin pumila or hindi na.

    Nakita ko nga din po yung mga reviewer na yan sa LTO site mismo. Haha natawa ako kasi parang andun na lahat yung sagot, need mo nalang ata tandaan.

    Anyway, kukunin ko sanang non-pro license is for motor and vehicles, pwede po kaya yun na pagapply ng isang bagsakan lang?

    Thanks sa insight and suggestions guys!

    Nag-enroll ako noon sa Quick Drive. Maayos naman ang turo. Day 1 ko is magfamiliarize muna sa controls ng sasakyan. How to sit properly, adjust the rear view and side mirrors, proper handling of the steering wheel, etc. Second half ng day 1 na ko nag-start magdrive.

    May option din sila na mag-assist sa LTO pero may additional fee. Kapalit naman nung fee is okay ka na sa written at practical exam. No need to take na. Madali lang naman ang written exam at yung mga question tungkol sa mga road signage ay nakadikit sa pader nakapalibot sa exam room so hindi ka na siguro mamamali dun.

    Yung practical naman, in my case sa LTO Caloocan ako kumuha, nag-start kami sa paglabas ng kotse sa pagkakapark sa parking sa harap ng office nila sa Araneta Ave. Tapos liko kami sa Caimito Road tapos University Ave tapos Mango Road at pabalik ng Araneta Ave. Kelangan ibalik mo kung san nakapark ang sasakyan ng hindi namamatayan ng makina. May allowance naman sila, pwede ka lang mamatayan ng makina once ata or twice, pag lumagpas, bagsak ka na. Pwedeng magdala ng sariling sasakyan for the practical kung meron ka.

    Good luck on the driving school. Don't just learn how to drive. Learn how be a responsible, defensive driver.

    Not true for LTO East Ave. Walang nakapaskil na signages sa room, bawal mag cp dahil baka mangodiko.

    One thing napansin ko, may chaperone yung isang aplikante. Napagkamalan ng guard na fixer, ininterview niya to make sure magkakilala.

    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.
    Yes. For real and the cost for the "assistance" was incorporated in the tuition fees. My then gf got her license this way. I would have preferred the old fashioned legit way, but then again, her money.

    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!

    Sa A1 (North EDSA) ako nag enroll, 20hrs, so far ok naman yung turo. Madami ako natutunan dun sa lectures and ok yung training center, atleast matututo ka mag park (parallel, reverse etc.) nang wala kang maaabalang ibang tao (at bubusina sayo ng matagal lol)

    Yung kapatid ko naman sa ESEM nag enroll, natapos naman nya pero never nya na-avail yung "Free 1hr (or 2hrs?) lesson" dahil palaging "busy" yung mga instructors. Hanggang sa nagsawa na sya mag inquire kung kelan pwede magpa schedule.

    the owner sold the car for xxxx pesos.
    then he sold the manual for xx pesos.

    I'm not riding the owner's manual so its a non factor for me.

    I also dont trust the PMS records of the previous owner so i change all consumables and fluids immediately after the sale.

    And always bring a mechanic so you cant be easily fooled.

    I think what they're pointing at is there's a chance the papers that are normally kept in the glove box got wet. When the vehicle got flooded.
