Complete! Here's a List of Vehicle Number Plates throughout Indonesia!

In addition to official documents such as BPKB and STNK, every motorized vehicle owner is required to wear number plates on the front and rear of the vehicle. The existence of this tool serves as the identity of a vehicle.

Each region has a different number plate. To make it easier for you to recognize license plates from each region and other information such as how to check the name of the vehicle owner, the following article will help you understand it more easily.

 

1. What is a Number Plate?

Vehicle number plates or TNKB (Motorized Vehicle Numbers) are the identity or identification marks that exist on every motorized vehicle in Indonesia, be it a car or a motorcycle. This plate is composed of a unique combination of letters and numbers that has been adapted to the local area plate code.

The main function of having this number plate is intended as an identification as well as a differentiator between one vehicle and another. Existing plates must be registered with the local Transportation Agency (DISHUB).

Not only that, license plates also play an important role in managing traffic flow to make it tidier and more orderly. For example, when a vehicle violates traffic or an accident occurs on the highway, with this number plate it will be easier for officers to identify the perpetrators of the violation or which vehicles are involved.

2. Number Plate Color Meaning

In addition to the combination of letters and numbers, license plates have different colors. This color difference certainly has a different meaning. Reporting from the official Instagram account of Polantas Indonesia (@polantasindonesia), here are the meanings of each color.

1. White Color Plate

Is a vehicle owned by individuals, legal entities, as well as representatives of foreign countries (PNA) or embassies and international agencies.

2. Yellow Color Plate

This plate is used by transportation or public transportation.

3. Red Color Plate

It is a motorized vehicle owned by a government agency.

4. Green Color Plate

This plate is used in areas with the free trade area category, where the area imposes import duty-free in accordance with applicable laws.

3. Province Number Plate Code

The number plate code that applies in Indonesia consists of 4 letters and 3 numbers. The first letter indicates the province of the registered vehicle, the first and second digits are the area code, and the third number is the serial number of the motor vehicle registration. For example, plate E is 0987 C, meaning that the motorized vehicle is registered in the area with plate E with the area code 09, and is registered as the 87th vehicle.

You can see the plate codes that apply in each province and region in the table below.
