To apply for a PIDP, visit the AAP office near you and bring the following requirements:
1. Original and photocopy of Philippine driver’s license valid for at least one year
2. Two (2) pieces latest 2x2 colored ID photo with white background.
(The personal appearance of the applicant is not required to get a PIDP, however, the applicant’s representative must present an authorization letter and any valid ID and submit its photocopy alongwith requirements no. 1 and 2.)
3. Foreign nationals, dual citizens and Filipino citizens born in other countries present the original passport plus photocopies of pages showing identification and date of last arrival. If you are a permanent resident, present your passport and/or Alien Certificate Registration along with requirements no. 1 and 2.
4. Php 1,800 fee
* pls. take note that AAP grants Php300 discount for overseas Filipino workers or OFWs. Just present any valid proof of your being an OFW (e.g. Seaman`s passport, employment contract abroad with valid POEA ID, etc.).
If your Philippine driver’s license is valid for one year, the PIDP will be valid for one year from the date of issue. If the Philippine driver’s license is valid for less than one year, the PIDP will follow the validity of your Philippine driver’s license. So if your license will expire in six months, your PIDP will also expire in six months.
If your PIDP expired while you were still abroad, you can renew your PIDP online by visiting the AAP website as long as the card type Philippine license that was presented before has not expired yet. If a temporary license was presented before, the photocopy of the temporary license together with the original LTO certification and official receipt should be presented.
