Aside from driving a TPUJ, modern jeepney, or a passenger bus in an active route, LTFRB said interested drivers must bring the original and a photocopy of their driver’s license, a signed certificate from their operator, two photocopies of their operator’s valid ID (front and back) with three signatures, and a photocopy of the original receipt/certificate of registration (OR/CR) of the PUV they are driving.

After registration, qualified drivers are given orientation on the program and assistance with registering for the program’s smartphone application, it added.
