Can I register my uk car onto Spanish plates if I am a non resident in Spain. Apologies if this is answered elsewhere but I couldn't find it.

Are you sure, folks? I don't think a non-resident can transfer a car. In any case, if you did so, it would then be illegal to drive it in the UK.

Thanks Jim.....I realised I wouldn't be able to drive it in the UK once it was registered in Spain but wasn't sure if I could register it as I'm not resident in Spain. Have to have a re think.

I'm not certain myself but, to make sure, you could check with Graham or Leigh at Spanish Number Plates.

Why wouldn't a non-resident be allowed to do this, it's just a vehicle-related process?

I looked into doing it once with a UK registered LHD vehicle, and Graham at SNP didn't say that it wouldn't be possible (and he was aware of my non-resident status).
