It will need to be inspected anyway to confirm "Homologado" and to be issued wih a "ficha técnica reducida". This will most likely be somewhere other than the ITV test centre - which needs to be your next stop.

Then it's off to the office which I forget the name of.. to pay your road tax. Then it's possibly import tax time depending on your residency status.... and another possible purchase tax depending on how long you've owned it and if you bought it privately - this goes to the local council.

Last stop is the Trafico for registration - take all the papers & passport and wait around a long time untill you are given some more papers to take next door and hand in there. Come back the next day and pick up your reg doc and go next door again for your plates.

All this can only be done once you have returned your UK docs to DVLA to confirm permanent export of the vehicle. Total cost is around 350 YoYos (not including import & purchase taxes if you get hit for them)

Spanish red tape, don't you just love it - and some folk think it's tricky to import a car to the UK

Personally I reckon that for the added cost balanced up against the hassle I'd use one of he small companies ha offer this serice to ex-pats for a fee

Good luck with it all
What a long strange trip it's been

You don't do that bit any more - all you do is send Swansea the "permanent export" slip from the V5C. They don't send you anything other, just flag it on their record - and you give the rest of the V5C to the registration authorities in the country you're registering it in.

Sorry, that's kind of what I meant Basically the DVLA have to be able to confirm to the Spanish auhorities that the vehicle has been exported as you can't have a vehicle registered in 2 different countries.

I don't know about the Spanish, but I'd very much doubt that DVLA bother to contact the registration authority when you import a vehicle...

Spanish authority will contact DVLA though to confirm Spanish import and registration and to ensure that the VIN number is marked as exported by DVLA

same as we import a van, DVLA tell German authority that vehicle now UK registered then they cut the corner off the German reg docs and give them back, you can't then reregister in Germany without going through the import procedure, the Germans check the chassis vin as well as the door plate when issuing export docs in their system, I know, I had to scrape the underseal off and show it to them
