I have a driving license issued by the Indian government (I'm citizen of India). How can i use it in Indonesia? Not for driving taxi but for regular use as a visitor. Do I need to apply for new license in Indonesia?

Yes, as a tourist you can use your own license, but you will also need to get an International Driving Permit (IDP). In India you can get this from your local RTO office, procedures will vary slightly but here's the requirements for Karnataka.

  • Does same goes with 2 Wheeler also? I mean, for IDP one of the requirement is to show "Visa" but for Indians, Indonesia has free visa so I won't be having visa while applying for IDP Commented May 30, 2017 at 12:46
