Company Background

New Biometric Driver's License
for the Philippines.

The new Driver’s License System.

In early 2017 the Republic of the Philippines Land Transportation Office (LTO) called for an upgrade of its current Driver’s License cards consisting of Professional, Non-professional and Conductors Licenses.  The deliverables for this project included durable polycarbonate cards and card artwork, AFIS System, printing workstations, laser engraver card printers, high definition web cameras as well as fingerprint scanners and digital signature pads for 265 LTO district offices. Due to many outstanding Driver’s License cards pending to be issued, time was very crucial for this project.


In an international tender for this project DERMALOG was able to assert itself against all competitors and accepted the challenge of this demanding Driver’s License system comprising of a High Speed AFIS (Automatic Fingerprint Identification System) and all corresponding hardware to be fully deployed and commissioned within a very tight time schedule.

Important aspects

The new Driver's License system first went live on the 29th August 2017 in Manila, the nation's capital, replacing the former system after only 3,5 months. A total of 32 security features, plus integrated fingerprint biometrics make the new Philippines driver's license one of the most secure in the world today.
