About the Book

Updated 2023: If you are planning a trip to Europe and intend on driving in Spain, this is an essential book for you.  We offer you a complete guide to driving in Spain.  While it isn’t intended to be a full driving manual, it is packed full of important information to help you drive safely, as well as avoid accidents and fines.  This is the perfect book with tips on how to drive in Spain!

Is driving difficult?

No, but we understand how overwhelming it can be to drive for the first time in a different country.  There are so many unfamiliar signs, terms and road markings.  Oh, the fear of doing something wrong and being stopped by the police, causing an accident, or getting a fine.  Sometimes just the worry while driving will cause you to make the mistakes, as it can all be so stressful.  These are all real fears and with just a little homework before arriving in Spain, you can help alleviate some of those fears and the stress.

Want to save some money?  (I thought that might get your attention!)

Would you like to know how to get excellent short-term or long-term rental car deals and tips?

Would you like to understand all of the painted lines on the street and all about parking and parking fines?

Would you like to know about the speed traps and how to pay a ticket, with a 50% discount?


Is this book right for me?

This book will be useful to anyone wanting to visit Spain for the short-term or if you are planning to live in Spain long-term.  If you are only going to rent a car for a few days or plan to purchase a car, this is a must for you.  It is easy to fall in to the trap of thinking you have been driving for years, so you will automatically know how to drive in Spain.

That is what we thought too, that is until we went to get our Spanish driver's license, then we found out how much we didn't know.  You get the advantages of our learning experiences right here in the book.  As Americans driving in Spain, we were required to go to driving school and get out driver's license.  Oh and if you are from any other non-EU country, you will likely have to do the same.

We will go over how important it really is to have that silly IDP (International Driving Permit and so much more).  Not to worry, even if you are from the EU, there is so much information in this book for everyone.  Yes, there are some specific references for the American driver or a non-EU citizen, but the majority of the content is useful to anyone driving in Spain.  You don't know what you don't know, so belive me this is for you!

We want you to have a great and safe experience driving in Spain!

It would be nice if they added a chapter on Portugal, Hint Hint. Thanks for a great guide. The part about round-abouts was very helpful."  Stan K
