Living in Spain

Civil status

Monegasque nationals who wish to live and work in Spain must hold a valid identity card or passport. No residence or work permit is required.

 

Driving licence

You can drive in Spain on your Monegasque licence for a year.

There are four conditions: 

  • You must be the minimum age required in Spain to drive vehicles in the equivalent licence category
  • Your right to drive must not have been suspended, withdrawn or cancelled in the country in which your licence was issued
  • Your right to drive must not have been cancelled or invalidated in Spain before you obtained your foreign licence
  • You must comply with the medical conditions indicated on your licence (for example, requirement to wear glasses)

 

Exchanging a foreign licence for a Spanish licence

To be able to continue driving in Spain after a year, you must apply to exchange your foreign licence for a Spanish licence.

If you do not apply to exchange your licence within this timeframe, or if your licence cannot be exchanged, you will no longer be able to drive in Spain on your foreign licence and you will need to pass a Spanish driving test.
