How to apply for a driver's license in Spain?August 3, 2016
Today we take the Spanish Driving License (after three months we request) or as here calls the Permiso or Carnet of Conduct.
This post is for Brazilians who will be more than 90 days living in Spain and want to have a Spanish driver's license.
For those who come to live here in Spain no date to return, and want to drive car, motorcycle etc., You have to do "Exchange Permit” . It is mandatory if you stay here for more than three months, because after these three months is no longer allowed to drive with the Brazilian driver's license. There are those who speak, that can be used to international driver's license (we did a precaution, here's how to do). But as we are forewarned, did the Spanish also, not least because it is valid for 10 years and the international driver's license (international driver's license)It is valid only until the expiration of its Brazilian CNH.
After you take the NO(Foreign identity document) or DAYS (national identity, only for those who have the Spanish citizenship), you should change (exchange) driver's license within six months if you want to drive, Failing this you can be fined. To get it you have to deliver your driver's license in Brazil, that is, you exchange your portfolio Brazil by Spanish literally.
But what if I go to Brazil? If you go to a holiday (up until 3 months), you can drive accompanied with Spanish passport wallet, but if you think back to live in Brazil, you will have to make the switch again, this time the Spanish for Brazilian.
But since we are talking about those who come here, let the tips to make your Exchange / Canje of Permiso! The first step is to enter the site da DGT (General direction of traffic) and click "Canje of Permiso", as you can see in the image below.
The site will take you to a page full of explanations. Click on "Request quotes prior to Canjes from third countries".
Then it will give you the option to choose the city in Spain you are living. Then choose the option “Exchange of driving licenses”, Brazil then select and click "Aceptar" or “Continue”.
after that, you will go through a explanation screen and just click on “Continue”.
On the next screen you will have to complete a form with your personal data.
Then it will give you some options of dates and times for you personally take the documents to make the canje. When my wife and I did, they gave us a date for two months after.
Attention! This does not mean that this date is confirmed. You should enter the DGT site to go following your request. For this is just entering the DGT site, go to "Exchange Permit" and, instead of clicking on "Request Cita Previa Canjes" you must click on "View Cita Previa". His quotes will only be confirmed when going from "pendiente" to "disputed".
Once your request has passed to "disputed", you must provide the documents, that they are simple: NIE / DNI or another document confirming their identity and residence in Spain, its Brazilian driver's license (original and copy), a photo 3 x 4 (here you have machines in every corner to make these photos), the request document, obtainable on here e 27,7€, What is the fee for 2016 and it can be paid either in cash or with debit card (It is the best option), as cash you will have to go to a bank to pay.
Besides that, you must do the psychometric testing again in Spain in any medical center accredited. Search, because prices vary, my wife and I paid 35 € per person, but we saw places charging 50 €, in our case it was not necessary to make an appointment. When we went we were quick, us 20 minutinhos maximum. This paper will be delivered by the Medical Center should also be taken to DGT. In our case, We prefer to go a couple of weeks before the Medical Center, not to curl up and think it's better.
On the day of quotes, just take all these documents I mentioned to DGT.
Just in time, she has handed me a paper that has allowed me to get out of there driving (within Spain) and is valid for three months, which is the maximum period for you to get a driver's license by mail. If you are traveling in this period 3 months out of Spain, You need to notify to them and they will give you a international driver's license, it costs around 11 euros.
1- Medical examination is valid for three months, therefore, always wait for the status of your request pass "pendiente" to "disputed" to do so, because otherwise you run the risk of losing dinheiro.2- Make sure that you can go on the date of quotes, because you can not cancel and ask for another. You would expect the date "win" to ask another.
