Re: Velez Málaga's Financial Woes

Re: Autobus from the airport to Velez Malaga

You can buy the bus ticket from Malaga to Velez on line (alsa.es). Print out the confirmation and just show it to the driver.

Re: Riding 125cc on Full Car Licence

Peter specifically mentioned the manufacturer's websites. As the Certificate of Conformity will give the maximum power then this will probably be available on the Ficha Tecnica

Re: Tickets for the Alhambra bought through bank

There are ticket machines opposite the main entrance. As far as I remember you just put in the card that you used to purchase the tickets. Maybe you get a reference number when you book. I'm sorry I can't remember. It was a very simple operation tho' :) :angel:

Re: IBI Query

I'd guess it was lack of funds at the time the bill was due to be paid by the bank. Happened to me a few years ago :oops:

We were taught to respect the judiciary (so be respectful as they let paedophiles and rapists out on bail). Gordon's...

Re: import duties

Import duty on hearing aids (healthcare products) is 0% from USA. You will have to pay vat which i think is 4% on the total cost of hearing aid + carriage charge.

Re: Spanish reg quad bike to UK & change plates

There are different regulation between Spain and Uk for registration of a quad. I presume that it does not have a Certificate of Conformity as a 'Quadricycle', therefore it will have to undergo a Single Vehicle Type Approval test in the UK. the regulations to register in the UK are much stricter tha...
