If you have a valid UK driving licence

From 1 May 2022:

  • if you were living in Spain before 1 January 2021, your valid UK driving licence will no longer be valid for driving in Spain
  • if you moved to Spain after 1 January 2021, your valid UK licence will be recognised for 6 months from the date you obtained residence

The British and Spanish governments continue to negotiate on long-term arrangements for exchanging driving licences without needing to take a practical test. If it is imperative that you drive, you should not wait for the outcome of the negotiations to take action. You must follow the Spanish Traffic Authority (DGT) process for non-EU nationals to obtain a Spanish driving licence. This includes taking both a theory and practical driving test.

It does seem a strange law and rule considering a British tourist can drive in Spain for 90 days on a UK licence. Maybe it’s all BREXIT game playing or British intending to be residents in Spain and their investment are not welcome. Who knows?
