the day has arrived where if you have failed to exchange your driving licence for a Spanish one if you live here then you can no longer drive using your UK licence.   The fact that it is difficult to get a test or driving lessons in english is not factored into it and the talks may go on but if the men in green stop you you're in trouble.

Well let's hope the Spanish and UK government's can come to an agreement with mutual exchange...would save a lot of trouble for many people.

Don’t hold your breath, some said it would never happen, the Spanish cannot survive without the English how wrong they where, not everything revolves around the English you live in Spain get used to it.

No one referred to the world revolving around the English and the assumption that Spain could not survive without them, it was simply a hope that people that have chosen to make their home here would be able to do so as easily as before the disaster that is Brexit....

A lot of people not you, where saying they will come up with a solution to help the British out, you must have encounter them, the fact is they where saying nothing would change, I have friends that where of the same opinion, that’s all I am saying.

Though strangely Spain and Italy are the only two EU countries creating this problem. So much for united action.

Oh and of course we have allowed Spanish residents in the UK to exchange their licenses.
