If hes not cross at the girlfriend for conning him, then I guess locking the gate to keep him away won't have much effect, hes obviously desperate or daft :lol: :lol: :lol: so his behaviour is unlikely to change, whatever you do :crazy:

Lucky you didn't get stopped. To be honest you should have said no without seeing the papers but I guess you realize that now. If he is genuinely thick then I dont think he's so much to blame as his girlfriend, but the fact is, im afraid it was you at fault and thats how the law would have seen it. Sorry Its probably what you dont want to hear.

It's not just the fine - if you had had an accident involving a large loss, you could have lost your home to pay for medical treatment or reparation. This would be regardless of whether you were at fault, because in Spain, an uninsured driver is always deemed to be at fault.

where is that raging smilie when I need it!

Update: I spoke to his sister, who ´kept an eye´on the bank book, she said the money came out of his account for the years insurance, it looks like she (the lady friend) paid for her car insurance and not the neighbours. I think the whatsit will hit the fan when she arrives tomorrow as the rest of neighbours family are going to be here to greet her on arrival :wave:


Taken her to hospital yet ? :lol:

Where does his money come from if he is thick and can't read or write?

Hi ,

"So can anyone just drive anyones car then in Spain if it's insured?"

Some policies state have to be 25 or over to drive, so read the small print first. :thumbup:
