Hi All

Just wondering if anyone knows the answer to this...

From the Costba Blanca Guide

"Driving licences
Driving licences issued from 1990, and the photocard licence issued from 1997, are accepted in Spain. However, the minimum age required to drive is 18. Licences issued before 1990 are only accepted if accompanied
by an official translation into Spanish (available from the Spanish Embassy in London and the Real Automóvil Club de España if the licence holder is already in Spain). Holders of these may prefer to use an International Licence issued
anywhere outside Spain. The licence holder may retain their British licence (if issued after 1990) or exchange it for a Spanish one, subject to the same medical examinations as Spanish nationals."

My question is....if I have a licence from from <1990 (The old tatty green piece of paper) can I exchange it in Spain (with a translation & IDP) for a Spanish driving licence?

Many thanks in advance

Always prepare to change and be the best you can.... Read my Blog...

I think you have to exchange it for a new one from DVLA first. (Not 100% certain).
And you don't have to exchange your (new) licence for a Spanish one any more if you don't want to. Personally, I would recommend it though if you plan to stay in Spain indefinitely.
