Has anyone exchanged their driving license from UK to Spanish in the Arroyo de la Miel area?

What documentation do you actually need and where do you have to go to do it?

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers

Hello there. I am Phil from Devon uk. I aml just buying an apartment in Torremilinos and my Spanish lawyer has told me that if you hold a uk driving license and even if you don’t plan to own a car in Spain you are required by law as a resident to hand in your uk driving licence for a Spanish one. If you do this by a certain date, presumably before the end of December,  all you will have to do is attend a medical at a driving licence centre and if you pass this you will be given a Spanish licence. If you fail to do this before the cut off date you will then have to sit a Spanish driving test. For people like me buying a holiday home in Spain I was concerned about the prospect of handing in my uk permit but I was told that a Spanish licence does allow you to drive in the uk. Although the uk may modify this after December end.  I hope this helps.
