Re-matriculation to Spanish plates
The Spanish Traffic Office requires all foreign vehicles to be re matriculated to Spanish plates within 30 days of importation. This means that if you have a car in your name with a European plate which you are going to keep in Spain and you are resident you have to change to Spanish plates within 1 month.
The whole process may take from 1 to 3 or 4 weeks although if you prefer not to handle all this hassle yourself, you can ask US (legally registered Company) to do everything for you.
Why Re-register your car?
EU law states that when you first move to Spain from another EU country, you must re-register your car onto Spanish plates within 6 months of your arrival. If you are a Spanish Resident, then the time frame allowed is just 30 days and you will have to pay the Matriculation (registration) Taxes of up to 16.90 % of the cars Spanish Fiscal Book Value.
A person automatically assumes 'Resident Status' in Spain if they stay here longer than 183 days. It is also illegal for a Spanish resident to drive a non-Spanish registered vehicle too and it's also illegal for a non-resident to keep a car here for longer than 6 months.
