Driver’s license

Information on driver's licence in Indonesia.
  1. Last updated on

The embassy does not issue Belgian or international driver's licenses, nor duplicate Belgian driver's licenses (in case of theft or loss).

More info on the website of the FPS Mobility and Transport in Dutch or French.

If you are staying abroad on a temporary basis, you can apply for an international driving license in Dutch or French.

In Indonesia

If you are a Belgian citizen permanently resident in Indonesia, you must apply for a local driver's license.

Requirements for Indonesian Driver’s License:

  • Original passport.
  • Photocopy of passport pages containing identity information, visa, and entry stamp.
  • Original and copy of KITAS or KITAP card for those who are permanently domiciled in Indonesia.
  • Original and copy of any valid driver’s license(s) you already have, if applicable.
  • Medical note, or Surat Keterangan Dokter or Surat Kesehatan, which can be issued at the police station.
  • Original and copy of KTP-OA (Indonesian Identification for Foreigners), or SKTT (Indonesian Letter of Domicile) if applicable.
  • Photocopy of Surat Tanda Melapor (STM- Indonesian Police Report Letter) if you don’t have item 6 above.
  • Meet the age of 17 year old.

Where to go for the license

The Indonesian police are in charge of issuing driver’s licenses. Therefore, you will need to go to your local mid-level police station. They’re called Polresta (or Poltabes), or Polres, depending on whether you live in a large city (kotamadya) or in a regency (kabupaten).
