Most frequent questions and answers

How long does it take to transfer a car in Spain?

We can do it the same day (occasionally the next day). You will receive a provisional permiso de circulacion (log book) to prove car ownership change. After a week the new permiso de circulacion will arrive.

Can you transfer car ownership online?

Yes, with our online car ownership transfer service. We will complete all the forms, pay taxes and change ownership the same day. We will have your new permiso de circulacion (log book) back in a week.

How much does it cost to change car ownership in Spain?

Our online service costs €50 + transfer tax.

This includes, making the tax payment on your behalf and sorting the paperwork out in Tráfico.

Can you get a NIE/TIE?

Yes, depending on your circumstances our TIE service is €120 if you are in Spain or €200 if you are still in the UK. Please contact us so we can see if it’s possible for you.

Do you have an ITV (MOT) service in Malaga?

We can get appointments much quicker than the general public and take care of the whole procedure from pick up to drop off. If the ITV is overdue then we can provide special plates and insurance.

If there is a problem we know a number of local honest and reliable mechanics. The cost for the ITV service is €30. 

Can I exchange a UK driving license to a Spanish one?

At the moment it’s not possible. The Spanish government is still in talks with Britain to decide whether a UK driving license can be swapped for a Spanish one without having to do a Spanish practical driving test.  Spain has extended the deadline requiring British drivers living in Spain to have a Spanish licence from June 30 to October 31.
