Planning to visit LTO for a driver’s license? Read this before falling prey to this modus exposed recently by an engineer applicant

Long queues, fixers and red tape! These are the common complaints you hear from people when ask about their experience with the LTO.

But LTO employee intentionally failing driver’s license applicants in written exams?

I’ve heard this rumor going around in LTO offices but no one has ever step up to present a proof.

Not until an LTO employee messes with Engr. James Balagtas who does know the word “failure” in his vocabulary.

In his viral Facebook post dated March 10, 2018 against LTO Tabang, Guiguinto Bulacan, Mr. Balagtas caught the LTO Bulacan red-handed.

According to him, he went to LTO Guiguinto Bulacan expecting to renew his expired driver’s license in a breeze.

But to his surprise, he was told to take the written exam.

Confident to ace the exam with ease just like the last time he did, he did not complain about it.

But when told he cannot take the exam on that day and return the next day, first, because of the cut-off and second, they can’t print the test paper, Engr. Balagtas insisted, otherwise.

In short, Engr. Balagtas was allowed to take the exam, finished last, very careful not to leave any question unanswered.

He also confessed, that he found the questions in Tagalog very challenging.

Note: Exam takers are asked if they prefer it in English or Tagalog.

A short while later, Engr. Balagtas received the news – he failed the written exam and got 34 score out of 60 items.

In disbelief, Engr. Balagtas barged inside the examination room to contest the result and demand the following: 1. he wants a recheck; 2. produce the machine that checks the applicant’s test papers or a board with holes that match the correct answer

The LTO employee refused to meet his demands but gave the assurance that answer checking was done using a machine.

To make the story short, Mr. Balagtas’ suspicion that corrupt LTO Bulacan employees intentionally fail driver’s license applicants in written exam to force them to pay “kotong” (red tape) after it was learned that he passed during the manual rechecking, getting a score of 46 out of 60 items.
