Driving Licences
Monday, 05 October 2020

Hi Folks,

Driving Licences.

If you are resident in Spain, then you need to change your driving licence before 31st December 2020 OR face having to take a driving test in the Spanish language in 2021 i.e. after Brexit.

I have just spoken to JA, the ChiFRA solicitor; he has been trying to get appointments for people to change their driving licences and has had to have a meeting with the DGT (Director General Trafico) to ascertain what the problem was.   

Normally to exchange your British licence for a Spanish licence, you would ask for canje; now they are saying that there are only one or two appointments a day for “canje”, they suggest you ask for “Conductores” which is drivers.

However, the DGT suggested that it would be better to have a group that want to change their licences rather than individuals. Therefore, if you need to change your British licence to a Spanish one, please contact JA This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it or Phone: 956 44 01 72 and he will organise it so you can complete the process with the minimum stress.
