Is it legal to drive a Spanish registered/insured car belonging to a friend

I have a Euro licence and am fully comp in the UK

We will visiting Hacienda del Alamo for the fifth time and my wife's sister and partner are resident in Fuente Alamo. To save us some euros they have kindly offered to lend us one of their cars while we are on holiday. I have been reading the many excellent and informative blogs on the perils and pleasures of driving in Spain and am a bit aprehensive about not being legal

 Their insurance will tell you but usually drivers with a full license over the age of 26 can drive covered under the insurance with the consent of the policyholder. Make sure you keep all your papers, driving license and passport on you in the car.

Of course this doesnt apply to me as I am under 26! (hehehe)


Quite frankly m'dear, I don't give a damn!

Anyone over 26 can drive our car with my OH's (policyholder) consent.

Just to save any problems I'd get  written permission, even though it's family.

Unlike the UK, here in Spain it is the car that is insured not the driver...You can therefore drive anyone elses car provided you have their permission. I would suggest that you have this permission in writing...
