Indonesian driver's license or SIM
Getting your Indonesian driver's license or SIM (Surat Izin Mengemudi) is easy and owning a car or motorcycle in your name even easier...
However it is all about getting a kitas or a foreign stay permit which is given for one year up to five years renewable annually. You just need a sponsor and about $500 once you have a kitas you can get a SIM an indo drivers license for both a motorcycle and car (A & C) the sim cost thru an agent about $50 to get both at the same time and takes about 1 hour...with a kitas you can legally own a car or motocycle and get your name on the blue boook (BKNB) you can open up a bank account and you can get credit to purchase even your car or motorcycle even get a visa card...The only thing you can't legally do indonesia once you have a kitas is vote and own land those are never available but leasing is perfectly legal and even better in most cases as it is a legal contract versus the nominee option which is not legal.
