Is anyone clear on the law now as non resident.   

We understood the law was car could be in spain under uk registered for 6 months in any twelve month period.  However when over last we were advised the law has changed. Now only allowed 3 months. 

I have been trawling through loads of websites but have found very conflicting info.  One site said  only 30 days  has anyone any information please.  

Trisha and den

This is good, honest advice.

1st... You can only drive a UK registered car abroad for 3 months in any insured calendar year.

2nd...Spain will only allow you to keep your UK car here for 6 months max before putting it onto Spanish plates, or with 6 months space in-between to bring it back in.

3rd... I have it on reliable... authority... the Spanish plods will soon be checking each & every UK car for correct paperwork, drivers licence, etc. If the vehicle fails to meet their stringent requirements it will be impounded and the driver detained. If you have one parked outside your house then you should have your paperwork at the ready!

4th... Thank Brexit for this!

5th... and yourself if you have flouted the legal LAW!

PS. When your UK car left the UK it (the registration) was automatically registered and recorded. You cannot escape.

And if you have flouted the LAW it is yourself who has sewn the seeds and could pay dearly for the heavy& perhaps expensive harvest.

Aspirin I think you will find  these rules/regs were inforce before any Brexit vote.

When did it change from 6 months to 3 months, it's based on an EU directive?

Rather than listen to every tom dick & harry, speak to your lawyer who knows laws of Spain regarding your cars

Caution....My experience of a Spanish lawyer in a community meeting when challenged by my knowledge of Horizontal law was that he admitted that lawyers don't know everything and he agreed I was right. Do your own homework and don't assume they are always right.
