I have driver license issued by my country. Does it valid? 2015-06-07T09:47:20+00:00

As a rental company we will allow you to rent from us with any driver license issued from any country.

However the problem is not with renting scooter or car from us. The problem is with the Police if in random case they will check your driver license.

By Indonesian rules you should have International Driver License or Indonesian License in order to legally driving Car or Scooter. As long as you know the risk (by getting fine on your unlucky day) and willing to deal the matter with the police by your self then you good to rent from us.

Please be noted that  driving license issued by any country is not considering as International Driving License unless it stated or written ‘International Driving License’. So in that case it is only you that can verify whether your driving license is International or not.
