A successful autonomous learner is usually influenced by numerous factors. Motivation is one of the main factors that have a connection and the greatest influence associated with it. This study focuses to scrutinize the correlation between motivation and learner autonomy of Indonesian EFL learners. It also aims to identify the significant difference between gender and degree level of study in motivation and autonomy. The investigation was conducted using a sample of 40 university EFL learners from some regions in Indonesia. The data were collected through a questionnaire and analysed using Pearson’s Product-Moment Correlation and independent-samples T-test. The result of the study showed that there is a positive correlation between learning motivation and learner autonomy. Results of the independent sample T-test showed there was no significant difference between male and female learners in motivation and autonomy, and also there was no significant difference between undergraduate and postgraduate learners in motivation and autonomy. The result of the study recommends the vital role of motivation and autonomy in teaching and learning English especially in the EFL context. They should receive great attention, as they can lead to more effective teaching and learning.
