Foreign registered vehicles in Spain
This week one of the most important pieces of news which will undoubtedly affect Ex-pats living in Spain is the amendment of the traffic and road safety law which has finally been passed by the government. This vast piece of legislation contains many points but the point which will directly affect a number of people living within our community is that all foreign registered vehicles which are kept in Spain for more than a month must now be transferred on to Spanish plates. This is frequently not done by those who either keep a car here for holiday use or have limited financial means, (or can´t face the administrative hassle) but this new law means that anyone caught driving vehicles which can be proven to have been kept in Spain and have not been re-registered will face substantial fines.
