Can I drive in Spain with my UK driving licence?

If you were living in Spain before 2021, you will be able to use your UK driving licence for 6 months, starting on 1 January. After these 6 months, you will be required to have a Spanish driving licence to continue driving in Spain. Unless you requested the exchange prior to 30 December 2020, to exchange your UK driving licence for a Spanish one you will need to take a test.

If you entered Spain from 2021 onwards, you will be able to drive using your UK driving licence for 6 months after your entry. After that, you will need to exchange your UK driving licence for a Spanish one to continue to do so.
