According to the bill, the Roadworthy Driving Seminar for All Drivers Act, filed in 2019, will be revived.

Initially introduced by Rep. Robert Ace S. Barbers of Surigao del Norte’s Second District, the new bill was sponsored by the same author as House Bill 504.

Representative Barbers believes our highly urbanized roads have become chaotic, and drivers need to be re-educated and disciplined. Furthermore, he adds that uneducated drivers remain the problem regardless of the implemented traffic solution.

Besides the seminar and exam, if this bill passes, there will be a mandatory driving test besides the workshop and exam.

All driver license applicants would be required to attend a mandatory roadworthy driving seminar if the Roadworthy Driving Seminar for All Drivers Act were passed into law.

The course should cover safety precautions, accident prevention, defensive driving techniques, Philippine traffic laws and regulations, first aid, and rescue techniques.
