As you know, we have been waiting for an official update on a potential agreement between the UK and Spain with regards to the exchange of UK driving licenses for Spanish post Brexit. Unfortunately, there is still no good news for those who either did not or could not register their intent to exchange or have arrived this year.
We are aware that negotiations are continuing between both governments and remain hopeful that a working accord will be reached soon.
The latest information states that Spain has granted an extension to 28th February 2022 for drivers with UK driving licenses who are resident in Spain.
These are the scenarios right now:
If you were living in Spain before 1 January 2021, your valid UK driving licence will be recognised for driving in Spain until 28 February 2022.
If you moved to Spain after 1 January 2021, your valid UK licence will be recognised for 6 months from the date you obtained residence, or until 28 February 2022, whichever is later.
