I tried to get an answer on this from the DVLA but having asked for a straight yes or no response to a simple question four times finally gave up. I believe that as a UK resident you are not allowed to drive a Foreign registered vehicle in the UK but would like to be proved wrong. I did think of asking my 84 year old Renault 4 driving Spanish neighbour if he would like a trip to the UK and drive my car over here, as he has never been out of Spain and therefore never driven on the left hand side of the road, imagine the chaos he could have caused on the M2, M25, M1 and M6 on the trip North !!!

I bought an Orange Dongle in June last year and put 25euro's on it, only use the laptop occasionally for checking e-mails when back in Spain during September and November, maybe 6 or 7 days use in total. From memory it costs 2 or 3 euros per day to use so may need topping up again on next visit but this can be done on-line. Found the laptop worked fine with the dongle and far cheaper than signing up to a contract when only needing occasional use, may even continue to use the dongle when we eventually move to Spain then I will not spend too much time on the computer as hopefully I will have better things to do. 

Thread: Dongle

Just had an e-mail back from the DVLA, as usual, non-commital but advising me to visit my local library to search for the relevant legislation or use the internet to search for Circulation Order 1975 and/or European Directive 83/182. Strange how you cannot get straight answers from Government Depts. Had a quick look at 83/182 but will have to read in more detail, from first glance it looks like the rules change if you are a UK, EU or non-EU resident - suppose the first thing to determine is if I am a UK or EU citizen - wonder which Government Dept will be able to answer that ? Will plod on and let you know.

Thanks for the replies, yes I am at present a  UK citizen planning to move permanantly to Spain within the next 12 months or so depending on house sale here in the UK.

I understand and can fully accept the ruling regarding the 6 months limit on driving a foreign registered vehicle within the UK or similar restrictions for Spanish residents or any other EU country's residents for that matter driving foreign registered vehicles in their country's, what I find difficult to accept is that I would be breaking the law if I as a UK resident drove my own car in my own country.

I have asked the DVLA to let me know what exact law I would be breaking by driving my car in the UK but as yet have not received a reply. I think my next question will be to my local constabulary's traffic department asking for their experienced opinion.
