Check if your vehicle can be registered in Spain at all (homologation)

Before you even take a step towards exporting the vehicle, you should check whether your vehicle type is homologated in Spain, i.e. that the vehicle manufacturer at the time had the type of your vehicle (not only the brand and model, but the type with all its characteristica) removed for Spanish traffic. Your vehicle type can be uU. only be approved for Inglish traffic. Here your dealer or the general representation

How long does it take to re-register?

After successful acceptance of the vehicle by the Spanish MOT (ITV), a change of registration usually takes 25 - 30 days (in the months of July and August it may take a few days longer)

After successful re-registration, you can unsubscribe from your registration office in your country.
