Most Spanish insurers will not insure vehicles with foreign reg.

I presume that you are aware that if it's UK reg & you intend to use car here all the time, you are required to re register as Spanish within 6 months? ( You can run a UK car over here for 6 months & then it has to be registered to Spanish number plate) 

Not fully sure of process involved, but there will be info on here somewhere how to do it. I know it involves ITV and change of headlights. You will then be able to insure here. 

Good luck 👍👍
