Exchanging your Driving License: Latest From the British Embassy

BayRadio | January 18, 2023

The British Embassy in Madrid has updated Brits in Spain on the latest UK driving licence negotiations, urging them to get a medical certificate in advance of an agreement.

A new Facebook post by Ambassador Hugh Elliott says that the legal checks have now been completed on both sides and the final processes required for an international treaty are now underway.

He said the agreement is now ready to be passed on to the Spanish Cabinet for final approval, although still didn’t give an exact date on when drivers might be able to get back on the roads.

In the meantime, the Embassy has urged Brits without a valid licence to get their psicotécnico or medical tests done in anticipation.

The test, approved by the Ministry of Health, measures whether drivers are competent enough to use their physical and psychological abilities.
