The LTO Road Safety Interactive Center (RSIC) and IT Hub is one of the newest and most innovative facilities that the Land Transportation Office (LTO) has launched in an attempt to educate the public, especially the younger generations of elementary and high school students, on some of the most important aspects of road safety. The RSIC facility boasts of state-of-the-art interactive stations, including driving simulators for both two and four-wheeled vehicles, all to engage students in an educational and entertaining manner.
As the RSIC becomes a focal point for immersive learning on road safety, the LTO simultaneously launched its newest IT Hub to further showcase the agency’s commitment to leverage technology for comprehensive road safety education. This dual initiative reflects a holistic approach towards shaping responsible and informed drivers and creating a safer and more informed community of road users.

The LTO RSIC (Road Safety Interactive Center) and IT Hub refer to the state-of-the-art facilities at the LTO Central Office in Quezon City established by the Land Transportation Office (LTO) in the Philippines.
