Vehicle Registration Process For Imported Vehicles In Spain

The information on this page pertains to cars, trucks, and other vehicles that are shipped to Spain for permanent use. If you are bringing a vehicle into the country for temporary use, it may driven without Spanish registration, provided it has current tags and a clean title. Temporary usage only applies for six months.

Registration Documents

Youโ€™ll need more than just your personal identification and the title of your vehicle to get it registered in Spain. Here are the essential documents required:

  • Purchase invoice (original & copy)
  • Current driverโ€™s license & passport
  • Proof of vehicle insurance
  • Proof of VAT (Value Added Tax) payment
  • Certificate of conformity (see roadworthiness test below)
  • Proof of residence (Padron)

The shipping company should be able to help with some of this if you have any questions, but their specialty is more on the side of the transport process.

Most registration processes in Spain go through the Jefatura Provincial de Trรกfico, which has local offices throughout the country. For more information about registering a car or truck in Spain, check the resources at the bottom of the page for links to the official bodies that oversee the process.

Roadworthiness Test (Inspecciรณn Tรฉcnica de Vehรญculos)

As is the case with other European countries, newly registered vehicles must undergo a roadworthiness inspection to make sure itโ€™s in good working condition. The test can be done at a number of locations throughout the country and examines the basic functions and components of the car, truck, van, or motorcycle.

Inspected components of the vehicle include lights, mirrors, turn signals, tires, seat belts, shocks, alignment, and vehicle emissions. If a vehicle does not pass the technical inspection, you have one month to repair the issue and take the test again.
