Renewing Driver License at SIM Corner Tunjungan Plaza

SIM Corner in Tunjungan Plaza Surabaya open from 10 a.m till night, so i think this is the best place to get the driver license renewed. Don’t forget to bring the original and a copy of driver license which want to be renewed and the original and a copy of ID card (KTP).

First, i must give the driver license and ID card (with a copy of them) and bought the registration form and for me who want to renew both of A (car) and C (motorbike) driver license must pay Rp. 90.000 ($10) then go to the doctor for health examination. This step is annoying for me because there is no health examination at all, the health certificate was written without any test. Next, Fill the registration form then buy the bank voucher, the cost for A driver license renewal is Rp. 80.000 ($9) and the cost for C driver license renewal is Rp. 75.000 ($8) after this step, the registration step is done, just give the registration form to officer on registration desk.
