Press release from Chris Poole, the Chairman of the Orihuela Costa Neighbourhood watch Association:
Recently I have had a meeting with a local Chief of the Guardia Civil and due to a lot of confusion on this subject I had the opportunity to ask him what documents are required to be carried in a vehicle.
He informed me that the following are necessary:-
1) The driver should be in possessing of his Current Driving Licence
2) The vehicle registration book. (Tarjeta de Inpeccion Tecnia de vehiculos)
3) The Permissin to drive. (Permiso de circulación). This is the green paper accompanying No 2.
4) A copy of the driver’s NIE form authenticated by a Notary. If the driver in not resident in Spain the Police may wish to see his/her’s passport. A copy authenticated by a Notary will be accepted.
5) The Policia Local may want to see evidence that the owner has paid the Municipal vehicle tax so it is advisable to carry the receipt in the vehicle.
It is not obligatory to carry a copy of the car insurance in the car BUT if you are involved in an accident you will need to show it to any other person requesting to see it. If the Police attend they will also ask to see it. If the vehicle is stopped by the Police and their equipment is not working, they will also request its production. Although there is no offence committed “IT IS THE RESPONSIBLITY OF THE DRIVER TO PRODUCE IT. Failing to do so will mean you having taking it to the DGT office in Alicante.
It is not required to have the papers of passing the ITV as the Vehicle registration book will contain details.
