Legal Requirements for Foreigners

If you are on holiday or you are a non-resident, car rental agencies will accept a passport and a valid driving license from the driver’s country of origin. If you are a resident in Spain (you have been issued with a NIE number) a driving license from the country of origin can be used for up to 6 months. After this time it is legally required to convert the driving licence so that it is valid under Spanish law.

Converting a Driving License

To do this you must go to the traffic depot in the area where you live and acquire the application form and relevant documents. You can collect the documents and fill them in at home before returning to the depot with the correct information. You can also ask someone else to pick up the documentation on your behalf. In Barcelona the traffic depot is situated in Gran Via Corts Catalanes, 184 (Tel: 932 986 500). Once you have filled out the application form, you will need to present the following original documents and their respective photocopies:


  • Valid NIE and photocopy (or passport) that is evidence of (student/normal) residency
  • Two recent photographs, 35 x 25 mm
  • Signed self-declaration that you have not had your license suspended or vehicle apprehended due to reckless driving in your country of origin. (The form is obtained at the depot)
  • Signed self-declaration that you do not have another driving license for any other country apart from the license that you want to convert. (The form is obtained at the depot)
  • Original driving license that you want to convert. (This will be retained by the traffic depot and returned to your country of origin)

If you are a non EU resident, in addition to the material sited above it is necessary to provide a medical report obtained from the relevant centres that costs approximately €25-30 (there are centres of this type on Gran Via Corts Catalanes, next to the traffic depot)
