If you live in Spain they can just take your money from your bank...

For those who live elsewhere the police will fine you on the spot...(but ask for a receipt)

Makes sense I suppose... otherwise they probably would not get the money...

I am a firm believer in keeping snapshots of documents on my phone and obviously my driving licence in my wallet. This should be sufficient to prove to any authority who you are and that you are street legal. What I don't understand is why would anyone be expected to have original (or even copies) of the most personal nature in a car glove box ?
Talk about asking for trouble.

If you are a resident I am sure photocopies kept in a folder would be fine... as I said before, the chief of Police, Rojales said a resident doesn´t need anything as the police can check everything from the car licence plate.

If you are resident in another country it makes a lot of sense keeping your documents in the car (or on your person) otherwise how would the police know who you are?

If it’s a UK registered car you need The log book, insurance details because they cannot check the details.
if it’s a Spanish registered car you don’t need your insurance doc’s etc, because they are all on the Spanish system.
But I carry the Spanish Log book/title only.
Only been pulled once (Spanish plated) no problem only having the title.

The local police and the Guardia have handheld devices that can access the DVLA data base [ as well as some other EU countries ] details of all the above are available in seconds to the asking officer .
For parking offences and illegal vehicles [ of any nationality ] they just ride down the road, enter the offending no , take a snap and voila you are fined or the vehicle seized .. they do this regularly around Lumsdens on a sat morning ..they hardly stop …!!!

I was involved in a no fault accident 2 years ago, the first thing the police who attended was to log in the vehicles details l[ it was a brit registered vehicle, with a Spanish insurance ] and within seconds told me that my vehicle was legal, when I taxed it in the UK the post office confirmed it was insured thro a Spanish in co, and they were able to tax it ..!!.
So big brother is watching you ..!!

The only time I’ve ever been stopped by the police it was a random roadside check.
They started by asking for my NIE. I didn’t have my NIE certificate with me, but had a photo of it on my phone, which they were happy with. They then wanted to see the vehicle documents. I had my passport on me, so showed them that as well. They didn’t ask to see my driving licence, but I’m not sure if that was an oversight by them.

I now carry a photocopy of my NIE, Passport and driving licence along with the vehicle documents. You can get these stamped at the local police station to certify them as genuine copies, but I’ve not bothered to do that. I figure that if they’re hsppy with a photo of my NIE on my phone then uncertified copies will probably be fine in most situations.

Don’t forget that you’re supposed to carry a European accident report form, and in practice it’s good to have a couple of these in case you were involved in a multi vehicle accident. It’s also good to have a translation of the accident report form if your Spanish isn’t great.

Pete.


I will try and put one of them on here in pdf format. I may be able to obtain one. has I am a qualified cpc trainer for HGV drivers. and we have this European accident form. if it helps anyone then I be glad to help.
