2 days before I am going to oversea trip in Indonesia, and I am planning to drive a car in Indonesia. Feel kind of worried.
So, I called up JPJ. Had confirmed that is required an International Driving Permit (IDP) in order to drive in Indonesia. To avoid local police harassment, I decided to apply a driving permit.
Documents need to prepare before apply:
- RTD Form, can download from JPJ website . http://www.jpj.gov.my/web/eng/international-driving-permit
- Original and Photocopy of Driving license (require validity more than 1 year)
- Original and Photocopy of My Card
- Passport size photo
- Fee RM 150 per year
Go to the nearest Urban Transformation Centre (UTC) , submit your application at JPJ counter . The good thing of UTC is you can go after office hours . Because UTC operate until 10 PM. Check the detail on official website : http://www.utc.my/
After the documents are ready, wait your queue. The application will progress immediately at the counter. It took me half an hour to get the permit from i walk in. Hence, is very fast. is manage to get the permit in same day.
The permit like a small booklet with few page inside.
Also written the list of countries that applicable. this also mean that if you want to drive in these countries, you need an International Driving Permit (IDP). Hope this help .
