Cars and driving

In Spain there is an efficient public transport network, whether in the different cities (metro, bus, suburban, streetcar...) or intercity, medium and long distances (bus, high speed, train...) you can always have the situation where you need to use your own vehicle, and that is why here is some information that may be useful for you.

Driving license

If your driving license is from a country of the European Union or the European Economic Area (Iceland, Liechtenstein or Norway) it will be fully valid to drive in Spain as long as you have it in force.

If, on the other hand, your license is from another country that is not from the EU or the European Economic Area, you will have to take into account that your foreign license will only be valid for a maximum period of six months, counting from the time you have acquired residency in Spain. If you want to continue driving in Spain you will have to carry out the canje de tu permiso (homologation)
