If you are a Spanish Resident, then the time frame allowed is just 30 days and you will have to pay the Matriculation (registration) Taxes of up to 16% of the cars Spanish Fiscal Book Value.

And driving an illegal car becomes a huge liability if you are ever involved in an accident and try to make a claim to your insurance company. There are big problems facing anyone who gets caught driving an illegal car in Spain, as they can be impounded by the Police through lack of compliance with Spanish laws and may face a heavy fine too. Then there's the issue and cost of having to employ the services of a Spanish Abogados (Lawyer) to ensure you get the car returned to you when it's finally registered onto Spanish plates. The cost is covered by one word ' huge!

Car legality in Spain

Some get away without conforming to Spanish vehicle registration laws but everyone needs to be made aware of the high profile and strenuous law enforcement with Police and Guardia Civil road blacks in the most populated areas of Spain where foreigners congregate. They frequently stop foreign registered cars to check if their owners have registered their cars onto Spanish plates within the time allowed. Break the registration laws and you could get your car impounded on the spot! Why take the risk? Don't become a statistic; get legal with We Register Any Car Spain. Another popular misconception that many UK Ex-pats think is legal is the fact that when their MOT expires they just pop along to an ITV station and get an ITV to 'substitute' the elapsed MOT. This is wrong and doesn't meet UK laws. An ITV doesn't ever replace your responsibility to have the correct MOT Certificate and if you get caught using your vehicle without a current MOT then this automatically means your insurance is null and void too! In effect, no MOT and no road tax means no insurance. Any sensible person would be thinking 'why take the risk'?

Basically a car needs to remain legal in its country of registration and if your car is UK registered and old enough to need an annual MOT, then that's the law whether it's been driven in the UK, in Spain or anywhere. It must have an MOT, be taxed and be fully insured too.
