[Credits: Palawan News ] The residents of Sofronio Española that received Driving Lesson from TESDA.

In the Philippines, you have to undergo a seminar, laboratory test, and others to apply for a driver’s license. As much Filipino thought of having a license, they take risks of getting it through a fixer. They might guarantee the licenses, but an untrained driver can lead to accidents on the road and could do further damages.

It is essential to have these driving training or seminars to make these people aware of the road’s traffic rules and regulations. Their knowledge will help them avoid unnecessary concerns, defend themselves from abusive enforcers, or share their ideas with other drivers. Since fixers for these agency grows, the Land of Transportation Office now requires for driving certificate.

From March 26 to 28, a Defensive Driving Lesson National Certificate II (NC-II) was administered by the Technical Education Skills Development Authority (TESDA) with the help of the Local Government Unit (LGU). It was held at the municipal playground in Barangay Pulot Center, Sofronio Española, Palawan. The training was offered to all Out of School Youth (OSY) that wants to have an NC II certificate in driving.

The certificates were given to all 500 participants on April 9, Friday. The participants were thankful for the opportunity given to them by TESDA and LGU that they will use in the future. It is convenient for all Out of School Youths to undergo this training without paying a fare to attend TESDA school in Puerto Princesa.

The Municipal Tourism Consultant Daniel Magbanua said on April 12 in his interview with the Palawan-news that “This is free and handled by the LGU through TESDA, kaysa naman pupunta pa sila sa Puerto Princesa, gagastos pa sila kaya dinala na natin dito para hindi na sila mahirapan at naipagkaloob na sa kanila ang kanilang training certificate,”.

“Magagamit nila ito for their employment kung sakali pag maghahanap ng work or sa pagkuha driver’s license,” he added.

Admission for Driving Lessons costs money in different schools, but in TESDA they didn’t travel and there are no expenses to be paid during the training. Aside from this training from TESDA, a total of 25, 904 rice farmers were completed various Rice Extension Services Program (RESP) training programs in 2020. The rice farmers and their dependents have undergone training on farmers field school on the production of high-quality inbred rice and seed certification, and farm mechanization; rice machinery operations, drying, and milling plant servicing; service motorcycle and small engine system; and, solar-powered irrigation system operation and maintenance. While others were trained on carpentry, electrical installation, and maintenance, welding, and masonry.
