Re: ITV change - no letter of notification

when you go to the itv station and select your registration number on their digital screens, after you select it it will ask you if you want notifications via text message.

Re: Exchanging UK driving Licence for a Spanish one

It might help if we knew where you are - please put it in your profile. I didn't opt to that as I move around and would forget to update it, but although at the moment I spend most of the year out of Andalucia I do have property there so could do these things in the region if it was advantageous. i...

Re: Exchanging UK driving Licence for a Spanish one

Re: Exchanging UK driving Licence for a Spanish one

Follow-up question that just occurred to me: I passed my UK driving when I was 17, which I think is impossible in Spain. I've just checked the insurance policy that came with my car purchase last year and indeed, they've simply added another year to it. The legal grey area of the policy not matchin...

Re: Solar lighting for gardens

Would you want individual lights with a small panel on each one, or one main panel with a battery back up etc, wired to 'normal' lights with 12v bulbs? Ive got the second in our rental - the panel is on the shed roof, the timer and all the other gubbins is in the shed. About 30 lights running every ...

Re: Water tank (again)

If its been installed 'properly' then there should be a shut off tap on the outside of the tank. The internal 'float / ballco*k' is super easy to change, its only one connection / nut and is probably the source of your problems with over flowing - the ball, if its polystyrene, deteriorates over time...

Re: Proof in England re vehicle replating

Hi, thats a new one on me - i've never been asked that before, and i've done 10 imports.

Who asked you that? Which office?

Are you importing the car as part of your personal posessions to avoid paying the import tax, have you only been here a couple of months?

Re: Malaga Airport P1 & P3 long term parking

Can i ask why ypu dont want to leave your keys? Dont you think its better to have the car at the airport when you arrive, or do you like to get on and off the bus with your kids / luggage? For the same price with an 'offsite' company, your car can be collected and returned to you at parking express,...
