How to Find the List of Accredited Schools for Driving NC?

I initially included in this post the list of driving schools in some parts of Metro Manila, Cavite, and Laguna. If you are in other parts of the Philippines, you can go to TESDA online page at www.tesda.gov.ph.

On the middle right side of the web page, you will see the link for the Registered Programs. Go to that link. You will be redirected to the “TESDA Registered Program.”

In the given fields, type in the course which is “Driving” and type also your location. For example Davao City. The tesda website will then show you the list of accredited driving schools in Davao city.

That’s it!!! I hope this helps you in your search for the driving school near you!
