I have been trying to without success to find any information as to how to obtain a license in order to trade cars. You don't need any such thing in the UK but as is always the way here, any excuse to extract money from the citizen and they will! It seems like a closed shop here with no amount of information available. I have just been told by gestors that I cannot do it. You need a license and you have to take an exam? I have been here over 6 years and there isn't a day that goes by when this country doesn't frustrate me with it money grabbing box ticking buraucracy! I just want to open a business and help the economy! No wonder so many people work black! I often wonder if this country really wants to get out of the crisis or whether it just prefers it's people to be downtrodden and not suceed in anything. The most that people seem to be able to aspire to is either a hardressers or a bar! Rant over! lol.

Interesting post. 

Do people living in any country not have to comply with the laws of that country ?

Or did you mean to ask :-

Hi K 5ive.

Surely it cant be that hard to do, I know a couple of English guys that have set up shop and doing what you say, and one Czech girl doing it on her own, no doubt there are many guys from the UK doing it and maybe fully legal as well.

So long as you don't try to step on anyones toes have you had a word with any English guys doing it, I do know what you mean with the last bit of your post, but if your intent on doing it you know you shouldn't give in.

And as a side issue they are trying (Not to fast though) to bring in shed loads of new rules on trading cars in the UK, no doubt  to make anyone who deals in cars fully compliant and of course if ever a license had to be obtained..A cost attached.

I have been told that the insurance companies that you buy your Traders Insurance policy with,  when you re-new it now want your National Insurance Number, and this is supposedly going to be put on the policy. As we know this has nothing to do with the Inland Revenue having a peek.

As a suggestion go and chat with some of the exisiting expat car dealers (might be better if you use one outside of the area you are intending to trade - competition etc etc)

I am in the Catalunya region so not really any ex-pats up here. they all prefer Benidorm or Malaga! ;-)

John ZX I am trying to comply with the laws here. However complying with the laws here is frustrating at the best of times. Needless bureaucracy etc.

Easier said than done. I speak Catalan but when it's for needing to understand official things I don't speak it that well.
