Extract taken from body of the link sent (see below). The option you choose is Renewal.

"To exchange your licence, you must attend in person and hand in all the documentation at any main police station or traffic office. You need to book an appointment using the application form for renewal of EU/EEA licences. Make sure you request the option ‘Driving licence renewal (EU/EEA only)’ (renovación de permisos de conducción: solo UE/EEE). A fee is payable for this procedure.",,,,,
