driving test/licence

Postby gavilan » Sun Feb 21, 2021 1:32 pm

with all the fuss about the virus I have lost track of ...
1. does one need to be resident to take a Spanish driving test?
2. is it still the case that a UK driving licence is acceptable til end of this year?
many thanks

A uk licence is only valid if 1. You are a uk resident on holiday here or 2 if you are a spanish resident who registered with the DGT before the end of 2020 to exchange your licence. If that was done you have till around june to do it.

To get a spanish licence you need to be a Spanish resident

No probs. Also if you didnt register your intent to change your licence to a E.S one in time ie by the end of dec 2020. then you have till june to take a spanish test as after that date the uk licence becomes invalid
