I think you're a little confused.

There is no time limit on getting your NIE - it can even be acquired before you set foot in Spain.

You should register on the list of foreigners (aka residenicia) within 90 days of arriving (consecutive days).

You are automatically deemed (tax) resident after a total of 183 days in Spain. No registration required but it is certainly recommended that you complete a tax return for the year in which you were here for more than 183 days.

Can't you give the address of a family member or friend? It's either that, or give the test a try here, or get a 125, which you can ride here on your current licence.

I think I might be yeah! I have completely missed that. Thanks!

I could yes. Just a little tricky now that I have moved here you know. But right now, that sure looks like the best, and probably only realistic option. :O

Hi Tomas.

I'm in the same situation. Trying to take the motorbike license. There are some school advertising English lessons, but they have all pulled out when they realize that there is not a English version of the exam yet.

I have asked the Norwegian government if they could issue me a license. I have also been in contact with DVLA in UK. But there is no exceptions as far as I know from the rule that it has to be done where you are resident.

I'm left with three options now. Either find a region in Spain where there might be an English version of the test. Look for a place in US to obtain a international license (don't actually this this is legal or possible). My final and possible only way is to speed up me Spanish lessons. Make them more theory orientated towards the theory books.

If you find a way, please let me know.
