Driving licence address

Your actual licence doesnt have your address on but if you move home do you have to change your address on anything relating to your licence. I know you need to change your address on the permiso

Yes you do. When I moved the town hall sorted it out for me including the details on the car documents. If you don’t they won’t know where to send the fines!

It may be different now but it was easy then. I guess you can do most of it online now.

I thought fines were sent to where the car is registared to on the permiso. I remember changing that when we last moved but i still had my uk licence then so im not sure if you had to change the actual address

You cannot change the address on a UK licence if you don’t live in the UK.

Yes, the fines go to the address that the car is registered to but you should change both addresses at the same time when you move, otherwise if you are stopped the Guardia have all your details and will question why they are different.

the town hall did this when we moved to Murcia - along with the address for the car tax - when we signed on the padron.
