Welcome to DrivingLicences.es

We offer an incomparable guided service through the process of exchanging your European driving licence for a Spanish one.

As a member of our website, you will receive a step-by-step guide, covering you from start to finish. We will book your appointment for you (subject to availability), at an office of your choice across Spain. You will receive directions to the offices along with a letter, to avoid any communication barriers. Your paperwork is prepared for you and sent to you securely in plenty of time, you have nothing to worry about other than attending a medical centre to perform a brief health check to ensure that you are medically fit to drive (we will point you in the right direction based on where you live and also offer you a guide for the medical process, do not get the medical until your appointment has been confirmed), getting some photographs and making a few photocopies of your identity documents to hand in on the day.

Our site will take you through each step at your own pace. You will be able to update the system to let us know what stage you are at and what you must do next. This removes any room for error. You will also be able to upload photographs or scans of your documents as you go along for us to verify, to ensure that everything is correct for you on the day.

Our system is fool proof. Follow every step in our guides. There will be nothing in your way to securing your Spanish driving licence and becoming a fully registered Spanish road user (subject to the ultimate approval of the Spanish Government who has the final say on who is issued a driving licence). Timescales for the process to vary in different offices and regions; however, the documentation required is the same nationwide. Please note the amount we charge is for the process, not the result. Results can never be guaranteed by anyone (the Spanish Government ultimately decides).

We provide our contact details on the forms for the DGT in case of any email communications before the issue of your licence. We will then notify you of any updates.

All you must do to start is fill in our sign-up form so we can capture the relevant details to get your process started. Providing that you have all the documents necessary, you could have completed the entire process within a few weeks (it takes around 12 weeks before your licence arrives in most cases).

Once you have submitted your application at Tráfico, you will receive provisional paperwork enabling you to drive in Spain in the interim. You are required to surrender your native licence on the day, and the new licence is sent out to you by post.
