Western Visayas Driving Institute Corp (WVDI), the first and number one driving school in Negros Occidental, is an LTO accredited driving school that has evolved to become the first to offer comprehensive packages including class lectures by a Tesda certified lecturer on defensive driving and preventive maintenance, on-site lecture (Battery, Lights, Oil, Water, Brake, Air, Gas, Spare tire maintenance), driving simulator and manual or automatic actual driving lessons by LTO certified driving instructors in Bacolod.
On August 3, 2019, Land Transportation Office (LTO) required all Student Driver Permit applicants to complete AT LEAST 15 hours of Theoretical Driving Course (TDC) and 8 hours of Practical Driving Course (PDC). In relation, Western Visayas Driving Institute Corp is the FIRST driving school to be authorized by LTO to practice this policy. Furthermore, it is also the FIRST Driving School in the Philippines approved by LTO Region VI to operate the Outreach Program of TDC and PDC in Negros Island.
From December 28, 2020 to October 2021, the staff and instructors organized the outreach programs in remote cities or municipalities in Negros to conduct the mandatory seminars for applicants who are unable to visit WVDI offices.
Prior to LTO’s memorandum, Western Visayas Driving Institute Corp has been training individuals to drive efficiently and to ensure that driver’s licenses are issued only to deserving applicants with sufficient driving skills and knowledge on road safety and proper road courtesy to minimize if not abate untoward traffic accidents.
From a single branch in 1997, Elda Barthelemy, Philippe Barthelemy and the staff successfully launched the additional branches to provide driving lessons services.
