Ok, where do I start? Have a few q's about cars and driving in spain so bear with me and help if you can, I need all the help I can get!! Me and my boyfriend are moving to Benidorm in April 2007. I am driving (old) english car to Benidorm on 1st April 2007 (ferry from Plymouth to Santander). Decided to this mainly because wanted to bring too much stuff to fly and too expensive to hire a van. Thinking of bringing my old faithful, then maybe ending its life once in spain is prob the cheapest option for us. But how do I do this??? Insurance, tax (due 30/04/07 , MOT (due 11/04/2007)??? How long can I keep using it in Spain for before I have to give it up? One thing I am definitely getting is European breakdown cover (only £30, just in case old faithful don't make it all the way!) Next is regards to learning to drive. My boyfriend is 25 and has now decided he would like to learn to drive. Trying to figure out our best options. His Spanish is very limited so would need an English speaking instructor while learning in Benidorm. Is better to get provisional license in UK before we go? What about theory test, do that first too, or can you do an English one in Spain? Any help or advice anyone can offer will be great THANKS!

I have a Rover 214, 1993 Spanish car and have been looking for windscreen wipers. In the local supermarket they have listings in books in the car accessory section, but I cannot find my car in the listing. As Rover went out of business last year I cannot find a local supplier. Help, it's raining!Ava

I know that you have to have a jacket in the car for the driver but do I have to have one for each passenger ? I have one for the wife but none for any passengers I may have. Thanks Tommy

Hello I am due to drive from my home in France in a couple of weeks to Torrevieja. I am just after a little advice as to the best route. I arrive in Spain Near San Sebastian from France. Is it best to go: 1) Down towards Zaragoza, Teruel, Valencia and down to Torrevieja 2) From san Sebastian to Burgos, Madrid, Murcia then Torrevieja or finally 3) Across in France towards the Eastern side and just drive all the way down the A7 past Barcelona, Valencia, etc I am just after the fastest route as I will be driving during the night so I am not too bothered about scenery or tolls, etc Thanks in anticipation Regards Andy

Would any one be interested in driving a car back to France for me as I have one that is not worth re registering here, before end of June if possible. Thanks.
