Hi All

I am resident,5 years and hold a UK driving license, but not driven since been in Spain, guess now if I wish to convert and drive I have to take full driving test in Spain, have I left it to late to do just the medical and computer test. Cheers.

Check first. You cannot drive with a UK licence after being resident for 6 months but you can exchange it after that time with just the medical. Not sure if they will accept one after so long but it wouldn't hurt to ask. 

That is, of course, if it's still in date.
