For you, the easiest would be to go to Seaside Mall. On the south side of the mall, on the outside, you first stop at Kaiser Medical Clinic to get your medical and drug tests (be sure that you can fill their cup because they will double charge you if there isn't enough pee to test (and they have to give you a new cup).

Next, you turn left on exiting the clinic, and go along the wall until you get to the LTO office. They have a senior priority system, so take advantage of it. They will process your application and give you a receipt. Take the receipt, turn left on exiting and walk around the outside of the mall until you get to the mall entrance.

As you enter the mall, the LTO printing office is on your left. Go to the receiving table, and tell them you are a senior. Otherwise, they will tell you to come back the next day. The seniors have a seating area right up front (so the hard-of-hearing can hear their names being called). Your name will be called for processing (again), and then you will be called again (after a while) to pick up your finished license. For those who are not seniors, this is a much longer process, and it will take at least parts of two days.

I have to renew my Driving Licence and I am a Senior.

Is it better to renew at J Center or SM Seaside?, I reside roughly between the two.

Views appreciated.

Seaside is a more pleasant wait and being somewhat harder to get to probably better - go early  - not sure what time garage opens

Renewed license at LTO Danao in early May.

Arrived 7.30 am.  LTO opens at 8..  but drug test/medical test place was already open..  walked out of LTO before 11am with plastic 5 year license.  Painless.  Didn't seem any different from last time.

There is a requirement that to get a license, the foreign applicant has to prove they are residing in the Philippines for at least one year.  There are some recent threads on this topic in the archives. The differing LTO agencies have been strict or liberal about allowing tourist with visa extensions to be permitted to get the license. Check the archives or perhaps a member will respond.
