Easiest Spanish documentation you need only the "Permission to Circulate" and TIE or NIE, plus a fresh 5€ note in and out in no time, at least in Torrox Costa. 30min queue mind.
Driving License not needed.

Looking round the last days I only see one car with the sticker and it's mine !

The LEZ was supposed to be coming in on I January 2024 but I've more recently read this
https://www.surinenglish.com/malaga/mal ... 29-nt.html
Malaga says it's not ready and wants to delay implementing it until the following year, 2025.

Both our cars have one but one of them is now so faded I wonder if a camera could read it. By the time it is implemented, our stickers would have faded to nothing!

As Lyric says, you only need your car registration paper and photo ID, not necessarily your driving licence.

Thanks everyone for the sake of 5 euro probably worth getting even if they do change their minds

In many places they are not necessary. However, they do tend to be required in bigger towns and cities. i got my first one a few yeas ago as I'm a frequent visitor to Madrid and one has been needed inside the M30 ring road for some time. They can also be bought online but are slightly more expensive.
As already mentioned, It's a piece of cake getting one from the post office.

They will be applicable in all towns over 50000 inhabitants.

The problem is that many towns are next to each other so even though my one only has 45,000, we border two that have over 50,000 and cannot be avoided to get around. Much easier to get one and then forget about it.

its a great source of income. each car paying 5 euros, a few million cars brings in a few million euros ...
