Foreign Plate Cars in Spain

The time when you could drive around Spain with illegally registered cars is coming to an end.   I have just read on the internet that The Guardia are stopping ALL UK & Foreign plated cars checking documents, if you can not prove there and then the vehicle is legal then they give you 5 days to register it in Spain or they will take the car and crush it. I'm not quite sure how they can do this without knowing if you are actually on holiday or you are planning to stay here.  Unless you have to show documents of where you are staying and provide details of your return trip to your own country.  I did hear in the past the way they caught people out was by catching the ones who are dropping the kids off at school (because obviously if your kids are in school then you must be living here). Let's see if they can get a grip on it.  And for all those out there who are interested, we do have a contact of someone who can help change your plates if you need it.  Just contact us.  


What better way to start our blog than to tell you all about our new promotion: With certain properties we are giving away a brand new Renault Twizy or a 3D TV.  The Renault Twizy is a new electric car which is compact and perfect for driving round town, especially with the summer coming and how hard it is to find a parking space.  There is nothing like it around yet and which is why we have chosen this to be one of our give away products.  The other being a 3D TV, again something a bit different to just a normal TV and what better way to start life in you new home than snuggling up to your loved one and watching your brand new TV. Has anyone driven a new Renault Twizy yet?  Let us know your thoughts and also post your comments on what you think to our promotion.  To find out more come to our office on Marbella Paseo, you can find the address on our website
