Registering a vehicle in Spain

Registration in Marbella

Registration in Marbella

We shipped our US vehicle to Europe for a touring vacation (Spain, France, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium, Holland, UK).

We have amended our plans and will be staying as residents, so we are looking into the option of obtaining Euro plates.

Our country of Residence is Spain, - we own property there/ NIE / Padrons etc. We both are dual citizens (USA and UK) and also have valid drivers licenses in USA and UK.

If we wish to register our vehicle in Spain, what is the process, approximate costs and other relevant info.

I understand we will be exempt of the tax duty due to owning the vehicle for more than 6 months and having lived in America for more than 12 months

Vehicle info - Porsche Cayenne 3.6 V6 (2008) LHD, same emissions and spec as Europe, except rear light cluster (flashes red instead of amber)

Thank you,

Mr & Mrs Fleet

Advice on registering your vehicle

Hello Mr & Mrs Fleet,

Your topic is a common one here on the Costa del Sol, as can be seen from the numerous plates on vehicles throughout the area.

We recommend you speak with an expert to facilitate the process. A local expert recommended by many families here is Miguel at: Gestoria Peral Cabello. He has assisted other US-imported vehicles with registration here, specifically for dual nationals. He speaks English fluently as well.
