Car road tax on a new car

Bought a new car a couple of weeks ago, looking at my bank account and the car tax has just been taken, but for the old car. Does this mean our new car is not road taxed? Going to Fuengirola today to specsavers from Granada province so may get stopped by police, so don’t want to be fined.

New RCD fitted keeps tripping

I have had a problem for some time with random RCD trips, so I bought an auto resettable RCD. On installing it, I set it to on and it immediately tripped I found that if I set any of my MCB’s to off I could set it to on and it would stay up. Thinking I had a cumulative earth leakage and the new RCD ...

Driving licence

Hi, We have just received our new Spanish driving licences but it only shows that we can drive a car, moped or tow with a car. It has symbols for other vehicles such as a van or a transit or Luton type vehicle but there is no annotation next to these to indicate we can drive these. Does that mean we...
