Deputy Chief Minister comments on reciprocal recognition & exchange of Gibraltar driving licences in Spain

Published by GBC News

As we reported last night, an agreement has been reached with the Spanish Government for the reciprocal recognition and exchange of Gibraltar driving licences in Spain.

It means Gibraltar-issued driving licences will continue to be recognised in Spain, without the need for an International Driving Permit.

It also allows Gibraltarians and other British nationals resident in Spain to make the necessary arrangements to exchange their driving licences for a Spanish-issued one.

Kevin Ruiz asked the Deputy Chief Minister if this standalone agreement signalled a more positive environment for the wider treaty negotiations.
