Autoescuela Corsa

AUTOESCUELA CORSA driving school in Barcelona that offers both theoretical classes and driving lessons in English.

License Validity:
European licenses (including Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein)
It is not mandatory to validate your license until it expires. Once it has expired or shortly before the expiration date, it is obligatory to validate it and exchange it for a Spanish license.

Those indefinite driver´s licenses (that never expire) or those which are valid over 15 years, have to be exchanged for a Spanish license no later than 2 years after getting legal residency in Spain.

Once you have exchanged your license:

  • The driver obtains 12 points (Spain has a system of points in which, depending on the severity of the traffic violations: minor/serious/very serious, points get taken away.
  • You are entitled to drive motorcycles until 125cc (if the original license is at least 3 years old).
  • The original license will be returned to the country of origin.
  • All types of licenses will be validated.
  • All types of licenses will be validated even if they are lost.

NOTE: The license holder of a vehicle with a foreign license plate has one month after receiving the residency to VALIDATE THE LICENSE PLATE.

Licenses of countries with an agreement (non Europeans)
License holders from these countries will have to validate their license and exchange it for a Spanish license 6 months after receiving their residency in Spain.

Andorra, Argelia, Argentina, Bolivia, Brasil, Chile, Colombia, South Korea, Ecuador, El Salvador, The Philippines, Guatemala, Macedonia, Japan, Morocco, Monaco, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Dominican Republic, Serbia, Switzerland, Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine, Uruguay and Venezuela.

If license holders from any of the above countries have an expired license or have lost their license, they will not be able to exchange it for a Spanish one, with the exception of Andorra, Japan, Switzerland, South Korea and Monaco.

Driver´s licenses from other countries (USA, Canada, Australia, etc.)
The license´s holders from these countries can drive in Spain with their original licenses for a maximum of 6 months from the date they entered Spain and for another 6 months after receiving their residency.

After that time, these licenses are not valid in Spain any more. Therefore you must get a Spanish driver´s license in order to drive. To get a Spanish driving license, you must pass a theory test (30 questions) that you can take in English or French and a practical driving test (minimum of 30 minutes).

AUTOESCUELA CORSA offers theory and practical driving courses in English. It also offers the possibility of taking the practice classes and the exam in an automatic or manual car.

To show the issue date of the original driver´s license in Spanish, you should present the following documents:
Certificate of the authority that issued the licence, stating the authenticity of the license, including the issued date and listing the types of vehicles that the license holder is authorized to drive.

This certificate must have a visa from the consulate of the corresponding country or has to be legalized with “the Apostille of the Hague”.

If the certificate is not written in Spanish, a translation made by an official Spanish certified translator or an official translation from a consulate office must be presented.

The process:

The tests to obtain the license include; a theoretical examination of 30 multiple choice questions and a driving test on public roads that lasts approximately 25 minutes. CORSA can help you through the whole process. We have both manual and automatic practice vehicles.
The Spanish government offers the test in English, and at CORSA we have all of the necessary materials and experienced teachers ready to help you pass the examination with ease.
