Before renting any type of vehicle Indonesia you have to know that it is mandatory to be able to drive it, to have the international driving license.
Without this card and especially in balinesewe can have many problems with the policesince they can fine us.
The police in Bali, not very reliable (with exceptions) that is, if they stop us and we do not have the international driving license in order, They will fine us, but as the police of this island said, it is not very legal, so it is most likely that they will offer you pay some money in exchange for overlooking the infraction.
Never it must be oneself who makes the proposal, we simply must expect for them to suggest it and once they do, the fine will depend on our negotiating skills.
In Bali they occur many cases of this type, it seems it is a common practice with tourists by some members of the police.
The best way to avoid problems is to get the international card, because in case you have a accident and do not have it, the problems can be greatly aggravate and insurance companies get out of hand by not complying with the rules.
