We have good news for all clients who have a UK driving licence. There is a new agreement between the UK and Spain, after all extensions.
The agreement was signed on 14th March 2023 and puts an end to all extensions we had in the last two years. This is definitive. You now have 6 months to swap your UK driving licence for a Spanish licence, without any driving tests. This agreement is also in place in the UK, you can exchange a Spanish driving licence for a UK licence.
Please note your UK driving licence must be dated before 14th March, this is an unavoidable requirement.
So for British citizens who are Spanish residents and did not apply for the change before Brexit or the previous extensions, they can do it from 16th March.
You will be able to drive with your UK driving licence in Spain for 6 months from 16th March 2023 while you are waiting for the new driving licence.
It is important to highlight the fact that Spain and the UK will share information of vehicles and their owners to deal with fines in both countries in a better way.
