There are only two ways that it is now possible to exchange your UK driving licence for a Spanish/EU equivalent:
- You registered your intention to exchange the driving licence before 31 December 2020.
- You were granted residency before 31 December 2020.
The choice for other people wanting a Spanish/EU driving licence is either to:
- Take and pass a driving test in Spain (multiple choice exam and a driving test).
- Wait until a new agreement is in place between the UK and EU about exchanging licenses.
You can still drive in Spain with a UK driving licence if you are resident until 31 October, 2021. After that date only non-residents (tourists) will be able to drive in Spain with a UK driving licence.
At Expat Services we can assist with the licence exchange if you are eligible or we can connect you with a driving school regarding the driving tests.
