Who We Are

Helping ex-pats in and around Malaga for over 15 years.

Simple English Advice was started by Christina & Delroy, a married couple who are both British expats and understand the frustration of dealing with Spanish bureaucracy and even more so in Malaga. Our intention was to help people in a similar boat to ourselves navigate their way through the ordeal of settling in Malaga. We recently won the SME News Award for Best Global Relocation Support Services Experts 2022.


We have been living in Malaga for 25 years and for the past 15 years have helped many people through stressful tasks such as NIE/TIE/Residency, social security matters, car driving licence exchanges, car ownership transfers, importing a car into Malaga, doctors, translations, buying/renting and selling properties etc.

Being bilingual means we can help you with most situations you will face in your relocation to Malaga or even if you’ve been here for years and are stressed out with the Brexit situation.

Genuine reviews from our clients

"I used the ITV service and Delroy made the appointments for me. The car failed on a small issue which Delroy got fixed the same day at a garage on my behalf. The car was taken back within a couple of days for the retest, it passed that time. Delroy made this a painless operation and took all the stress away from me. Initailly I was most anxious over the ITV as I am now a widow. I would reccommend this highly professional service., as nothing is too much trouble for Delroy."


"Used Delroy for the first time , which took all the stress out the process of checking the road worthiness of my vehicle He made things so simple by offering a home collection service and dealt with all the paperwork, meaning I only had to leave my car keys for him. I will use his services again and would recommend him to other car owners."

"Absolutely first class service from start to finish. Couldn’t recommend highly enough. Thanks for everything Del."


Last month I had the incredible good fortune to find Delroy who specializes in getting your vehicle through All the Intricacies of ITV testing with not one minute of your time being spent. We had completely forgotten about our two vehicles during Covid. One was about a year late!! The other six months! The Pandemic meant a giant backlog for ITV tests. The appointments were Cast Three to four months into the future. Delroy seemingly worked little miracles and ably arranged for both our vehicles to get tested and passed on the same day several months ahead of schedule.

Spanish Red Tape

Anyone who has dealt with Spanish red tape knows how difficult and frustrating it can be. We help to take some of the stress out of everyday procedures like changing car ownership, importing vehicles, banking, social security etc.

If you search the internet for questions such as ‘how much does it cost to transfer ownership of a vehicle?‘, ‘How can you import a car into Malaga?‘, or, ‘Is it possible for UK citizens to get residency in Spain now?’ you will find conflicting information. What’s even more frustrating is when you speak to different people in different departments, they all say different things – sometimes even different people within the same department give conflicting answers!

Watch this short video that sums up Spanish red tape.

Kinda funny, but sadly true. Even Spanish people are frustrated by Spanish red tape. With over 25 years of experience dealing with Spanish bureacracy, Simple English Advice can help you to get things done quicker and easier. Don’t just take our word for it – read our 5-star reviews on Google or see what our customers say below.
