When traveling to Spain, it is a good idea to know the rules about driving in Spain. Let’s take a look at some of the basics. If you are a non-residence of Spain, you are still permitted to drive but you must obtain a foreign driving license and can use it no longer then six months. You must abide by the laws of the road such as the speed limit. Regular speed limits are as follows: Urban roads are 50kph, residential areas are 20 kph, country roads are 90kph, dual carriage ways are 100kph and the autovias are 120kph.
Another stipulation to driving in Spain is abiding by the insurance law. It is mandatory to have third party insurance. There is a way to reduce the amount that you have to pay for insurance by providing proof that you have had no claims in the last five years. It is required that you wear a seat belt in both he front and back seats. There are also fines that you may incur if you are caught speeding or drinking while driving. The legal limit for blood alcohol in Spain is 50mg per millilitre and they test with a breathalyzer there very frequently.
There is also a road tax that is paid to the local government and the tax is determined by the area and the vehicle. There is also a year inspection that must be done on each vehicle and to make this easier on people there are many stations located all over in the major towns. When you are in town be sure to abide by the parking spaces provided and be sure to get the correct parking ticket from the parking attendants. If you do not follow the guidelines of these spaces then you can face some pretty hefty fines.
