You can get this invoice when you finish making a purchase and it is made officially by the seller or motorbike dealer. Generally, this document is provided together with other important documents such as BPKB and STNK. Apart from the buyer, the seller also keeps a copy of the invoice for the motor vehicle sold.

2. 7 Motor Vehicle Invoice Functions

2.1.  Legal Evidence of Motorized Vehicle Ownership

The invoice is valid proof of purchase because it was issued directly by the dealer. Invoices can also be used as administrative requirements for administering BPKB and STNK. In addition, the existence of a motor vehicle invoice is also recognized by the authorities such as the police.

2.2. Additional Evidence of Legality

Motor vehicle invoices are used as proof of the legality of vehicle ownership apart from official documents such as STNK and BPKB. So, before you plan to buy a used vehicle, make sure the seller has the original purchase invoice.

2.3. Not as a Requirement for Transfer of Vehicle Names

Don't get me wrong, even though invoices are used as one of the requirements for taking care of the BPKB and STNK, in fact when transferring the vehicle name, invoices are not made as one of the administrative requirements. This can happen because the transfer process includes the BPKB as a complementary document.
