Riding License :
Fact 1 :
If you don’t have a motorcycle license at Home
then you technically have no right to ride in Bali
Fact 2 :
You don’t need an International Riding License to ride in Bali
• You have legally obtained your Riding License in an English Spoken Country and your original Riding document is in English .
• You have an Notarized English translation of your Driving papers French in my case or even better a certified Translation by your own Embassy* …
• You have a Legal Asean driving license (Thailand, Philippines etc)
* A certified document which is my case are French documents
Translated in English and certified by my Consulate in Japan
are legal documents with no expiration dates.
noting that French Driving-Riding Licenses have NO such expiration dates.
YET … Don’t be naive All of the above won’t stop you
from being pulled out, asked to show your documents
being told that you have broken WHATEVER laws
and have to pay a Bribe … ooops … The Local Fine !
Fact 3 :
How much are the fines ?
Depends how much you have in your Wallet
