Importing UK Cars to Spain

Importing your UK Registered Vehicle from the U.K. to Spain

If you spend longer than six months of the year in Spain with your UK Registered Car, Spanish law says you must register your vehicle with the Spanish authorities. For information on how to do this (including how to change your licence plate) consult the Dirección General de Trafico and/or The RACE (Real Automóvil Club de España) also provides useful guidance about all aspects of importing your vehicle.

Please note that it is unlikely that you will be able to register right- hand drive vehicles such as vans and commercial vehicles.

UK Registered Vehicles being driven in Spain must comply with all UK requirements for Road Tax, M.O.T. and Third Party Insurance covering the full time period the vehicle is used in Spain, up to the six- month limit.

For more detailed information, read our ‘Vehicle Matriculation’ Page.
