Cars and Motoring - License Renewal

License Renewal

Anyone holding a Spanish drivers' license must renew the document according to the following schedule:

  • From the time you receive your license until you turn 45 years old, you must renew every 10 years
  • From the ages of 45 to 70, you must renew every 5 years
  • From the age of 70, you must renew every 2 years

Renewal involves paying a fee, of course, and passing physical and "psico-tecnico" exams. The first is often nothing more than a formality, while the second involves a machine similar to a video game.
