Joint Administrative Order 2014-01

Here's an important thing for all Filipino drivers to take note of: make sure that you renew your driver's license on time and that you have it with you every time you are on the road. The penalty for driving without a license or with an expired driver's license is a fine of P3,000 as well as the revocation of driving privileges for a year.

I found out about this while I was on a taxi cab recently and the driver was listening to Isumbong mo kay Tulfo on the radio. A guy called in to raise a concern about the penalty he got for driving with an expired license. More than the money, it was the fact that he couldn't get a license for 1 year that hurt him quite badly, as it would any driver. Tulfo then called a government official to ask about this and the official confirmed that the penalty was in fact correct ever since Joint Administrative Order 2014-01 was put into effect in June 2014:

Top Gear Philippines provided a summary of the updated penalties for certain traffic violations. To all Filipino drivers out there, make sure you familiarize yourself with Joint Administrative Order 2014-01 and make sure you do not commit any of these violations as the penalties are quite stiff.
