How to Get Your Student Driver’s License in Cebu


Source: Oregon Department of Transportation

If you're planning to learn how to drive this summer, you first need to secure a student driver's license.

Note that it is illegal to drive any vehicle with your student's license without an adult (owning a non-professional or professional license) supervising you. So don't think that your student's license is your key to freedom on the road. Your parents or guardians still need to be there with you.

Here's a step by step guide to getting your student driver's license in Cebu.
