Note, the validity period of the latest SIM is not from the date of birth anymore

Talking about the validity period of the latest 2022 SIM, it is not the same as the validity period in previous years. In the past, SIMs expired every 5 years based on the date of birth of the maker.

However, this rule is no longer in effect. So when is the SIM said to have expired or expired? For more details, consider the following review.

Latest Rules for SIM Validity in 2022

A driver's license (SIM) is an important document or permit for a person's eligibility to drive a motorized vehicle. SIM itself is divided into several types according to the vehicle being driven. SIM types include:

  • SIM A for car
  • SIM B1 for public transportation
  • SIM B2 for trucks and heavy duty vehicles
  • SIM C for motorbikes
  • and SIM D for disabled drivers. 

SIM is the legality of driving, so someone who doesn't have it is not fit to use a motorized vehicle. This aims to avoid traffic accidents, or things that endanger other road users.

SIM has a validity period that must be renewed every 5 years like the validity period of police license plates. Previously, SIMs had a validity period of 5 years and the expiration date was based on the date of birth of each maker.

However, SIM currently has different rules. That is, a SIM is valid for 5 years since the issuance of a SIM. For example, you were born on May 2, but you renewed your SIM on April 27, 2018. This means that your SIM expiration date is not May 2, 2023, but April 27, 2023.

This regulation has actually been enforced since October 2020. This rule refers to the Perkap (Kapolri Regulation) Th. 2012 No. 9. Even so, not everyone knows this. Therefore, you must be more careful so that the validity of your SIM is not canceled. If you are not careful, you are required to make a new SIM again.
