Arranging car transport to Spain can be a lengthy and complicated process, which is why it's best to research everything you need to do before you go. This article will outline the measures that need to be taken before you leave the UK, how to best arrange car delivery to Spain and finally the registration process once you arrive.

If you're not planning to stay in Spain for more than 6 months you can take your own car without the hassle of having to re-register it in Spain. It's important to check with your insurance company that your policy will be valid over there. If it's not, you can buy Spanish insurance for your car while you're out there, but this is not the cheapest option.

For the duration of your stay (if you're not planning to re-register the car to Spain) your car must have a current UK tax disk and MOT. It's advisable to carry all your car documents, including your insurance paperwork, with you at all times. If your MOT runs out while you're there, you'll need to get the Spanish equivalent, known as an ITV. Failure to have current insurance, tax and MOT can result in hefty fines.

If you are planning to stay in Spain for longer than 6 months, you will be liable for import duties, local Spanish taxes and various fees for registration. Your legal status will automatically become “resident” if you stay for over 182 days. Expect a hefty fine if you've failed to arrange registration in time.

The main thing you need to do before you leave the UK, is let the DVLA know of your plans. You'll need to send them your car's registration documents, which they will exchange for a certificate of permanent export. The next step to take is to find a car transporter who will be able to deliver your car for you.
