I've brought my UK car over and the Road Tax is due to expire on 31st May 12, I have got Spanish insurance and the MOT has got 11 months left. Can anyone tell me what I need to do to get it taxed here (Camposol) please?
Thanks for the replies guys, I have only been here 3 weeks and thought I had a bit of time to get Spanish Plates in it...
Guess I need to get it sorted
The angloINFO INFOrmation pages provide comprehensive, accurate and up to date details on Importing & Registering a Foreign Vehicle in Spain for both residents and non-residents http://costacalida.angloinfo.com/countries/spain/motoregister.asp
"Bringing Your Vehicle to Spain
It is illegal for residents of Spain to drive a car with foreign plates, so once a car is imported to Spain, it must be registered with the Spanish authorities. If entering Spain with foreign plates, residents are allowed to drive from the port of entry to their residence only. Spanish plates must be obtained within 30 days of entry. Temporary permission to drive an imported vehicle - and temporary licence plates - should be obtained from the provincial Traffic Department (Jefatura Provincial de Tráfico) or full re-registration of the car must be undertaken"
"Non-resident EU citizens
EU citizens who are not Spanish residents may drive their foreign-registered vehicles (cars, motorbikes and caravans) in Spain for up to 180 days (six months) in a calendar year as long as it is road-worthy in the country in which it is registered. In this case, only the owner of the vehicle may drive it.
A foreign-registered vehicle may remain in Spain for more than 180 days in a calendar year as long as it is not driven. Even though EU citizens are no longer required to obtain a residence card, after 182 days the vehicle must be registered in Spain or garaged."
