  2. If I need to change from a married name to another married name ( option #9 in the form), what name should I indicate in the first line of the form (the "I ___________, of legal age..."), is it my maiden name, my previous married name or the current married name? Thanks.

  3. Hi! LET Passer ako last 2015. Release ng PRC License ko was Feb 2016. Di ko pa kinuha that time dahil inasikaso ko na yung wrong spelling sa surname ko and at the same time para sana iisang lakaran na lang pag nagpabago ako ng surname at pagclaim ng license. Nandun pa po kaya yun or maipapabago ko ba yung correct spelling ng surname ko kahit di ko pa naclaim yung lisence ko? Thanks.
