Deadline for exchanging drivers licences looms for UK residents

Written by on April 9, 2021

People living in Spain who have yet to exchange their driving licence for a Spanish one have been issued with updated guidance from the UK Government.

Residents who wish to continue to drive in Spain must change their UK licence to a Spanish one by the end of June, as from that date UK licences will cease to be valid.

If you have registered to exchange your licence before the end of last year, you should request an appointment with the DGT to exchange your licence before the end of June.

Those who did not start the process before the end of the Brexit transition period will have to follow the Non-EU national process, which involves taking a driving test.
