What are the requirements to drive in Spain?

If you are a non-EU resident, your national driving license is only valid for six months for driving in Spain.
Can I exchange my driver’s license for a Spanish driver’s license?
The simple answer to this question is yes! Spain has agreements with over twenty different countries that allow you to apply for your driving license in Spain. These countries include:
- Dominican Republic
Spain also has agreements with other organizations, such as the diplomatic corps and various international organizations, educational institutions, military and police organizations, which also allow for the simple exchange of driving licenses. Individuals subject to these contracts and some of their family members may not have to meet the standard requirements to obtain a Spanish driver’s license.
