You can apply for the theoretical exam to get a Spanish Driving Licence from DGT (official body) as long as you can verify your Spanish residence, no matter what your country of origin is.
When you make the appointment with DGT, you should notify them of your intention to take the theoretical driving exam in English; otherwise, they will give it to you in Spanish.
The DGT (official body) only allows you to take the driving exam for the Class B (cars) permit in English. All other driving permits, such as the Class A (motorcycles) or C Class (trucks) must be done in Spanish.
No, it’s not mandatory. You can get your driving licence without the requirement of going to a physical driving school by practising with our online tests, studying the driver’s theoretical book and submitting the required documentation to the Dirección General de Tráfico (DGT).
The first step is to visit the “Jefatura Provincial de Tráfico” of the town where you reside, requesting an appointment at the following link:
If you don’t know where to find the official body of your town where you have to take the exam, consult the following link: http://www.dgt.es/es/la-dgt/quienes-somos/estructura-organica/jefaturas-provinciales/
Original documentation required:
Yes. All the questions located in our “Latest DGT tests” area have been extracted from real DGT theoretical tests. This body has a database of 14,000 possible questions and we add the most updated ones every week to provide you the best materials to get your driving licence.
We upload exam questions daily once they have been published by DGT. That way, you can be sure that all our materials are fully up to date. The most recent updated is 20-03-2017.
No, it’s not possible. You can practise with all our online tests, the same as the one that you’ll find on exam day, but for the exam you must go to the Jefatura Provincial de Tráfico office of your town on-site and sit the test either on paper or their computer.
No, you’ll need to obtain a Spanish driving licence, since the Spanish state doesn’t accept the UK driving licence or any non-EU permits as valid to drive in Spain.
Only driver’s licences issued by EU member countries or EEA countries (Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein) will be valid to drive in Spain, as long as they are in force.
