People have mentioned keeping their U.S. license current so that when they go back to the States for a visit they can drive.
Why not just use your Philippine drivers license to rent a car in the States?

Look into local state laws.

Yes you can drive on your Philippine license back home but in Manitoba if you do not renew for 4 years or have a transferable license ( Philippine licenses are not transferable) you start all over again on the graduated license system. 9 months learner, 3 years serious restrictions then another 2 years slight restrictions, over 5 years to get full license privileges back.

I'd make the effort to ensure that you come home often enough to avoid that just in case you ever have to move home.

The US is similar it didn't recognize my Guam license either (US territory) I had to take the written and the driving test all over again, actually it wasn't that hard but they didn't make me drive as a learner that don't make sense? Why Manitoba would you be considered a learner even Canada.
