Not a lawyer just one of those idiots who didn't understand your post OR the title in relation to the post.If their a lawyer who can answer the question on the UK driving license. It seems you have to carry a 10 year UK unless you are here more than 182 days a year continuously, but what happens if you go back to the UK a more than 4 times a year?
afaik there are no lawyers giving advice, free or otherwise, on this forumI have been informed that driving licences cannot be unlimited in Spain any more if you are a resident. My issue was that if a person was not a permanent stay in Spain or under 182 days ( i.e individuals changed country a lot) would this rule may still apply. I realise the first question was confusing but to see a moderator simply just ask the questioner to restate his question again is disappointing. The website is a little unclear and I am new, I would expect this attitude from a kids forum, but would expect better from a grown up.
tsk,,,, there is always one who goes and spoils it for the rest of us,,,i was waiting for fisty cuffs, sat back with a cold 'un' in my mitt the works, bah!!!afaik there are no lawyers giving advice, free or otherwise, on this forum
& it seems that a kind moderator has changed the thread title for you
this should explain the current situation for you :DO I HAVE TO EXCHANGE / RENEW MY EU DRIVING LICENCE?
from the Driving in Spain section of our http://www.expatforum.com/expats/sp...-living-spain/2725-faqs-lots-useful-info.html
during its period of validity according to the DGT - which might not be the same as its period of validity in the country of issueThe 90-day and 182-day rules are red herrings as far as driving licences are concerned. If you have a valid licence issued in another EU country and it is a EU-valid licence (it has the ring of stars with EU in centre) with a photo, you are permitted to continue using it during its period of validity. You can usually exchange it for a Spanish one if you are here long-term (most places will accept it as a form of ID - saves carrying your passport around or losing it)
