If an unfortunate event has already occurred twice, it will most likely happen a third time.

No 1, My new credit sized TIE card had the wrong wording on it.

No 2, My new credit card sized Spanish driving licence did not include my UK driving entitlements.

No 3, Yesterday I lost my Credit Card somewhere.

I am so pleased my middle name is Lucky.

How awful. I feel so sorry for you.

Hopefully, your credit card will be handed in, although by now you will probably have cancelled it.

Just looked at my Spanish driving licence and can't  see anything about UK driving entitlement. Can you give me a clue how that is indicated please.

Thank you, and yes cancelled the card as soon as I realised it was missing, the funny thing was my old wallet with all these new cards was not good enough, so I bought myself a new one yesterday, so when changing wallets over I realised my credit card was missing, I have been checking my on the line account and at the moment all seems well, so it has not been used?         There was a thread a few days ago titled Exchanging driving license, have a read.

Also when you exchanged your Uk driving licence to a Spanish one, On the back of your uk licence shows what entitlements to drive particular vehicles of all sizes, weights and measures, For example, my uk licence entitled me to drive Vehicles described as A, AM,B, BE, B1, C1, D1, C1E, D1E, F, G, H, K, L, N, P, Q, = 7.5ton/Mini Buses ect ect. When I received my Spanish licence my entitlements were AM, B, BE, That's all, so I have lost all above except 3 of them, limiting me to only 3.5ton including trailer!!!! So back to the drawing board, If you still have a copy of your UK licence check to see? You can always go on the DVLA website, providing you have your UK driving Licence number to check what entitlements you had, but its worth checking the site out.

Sorry to hear that, mine has been a pain, gaining these cards, and they all turned out faulty, if you get my drift. Happy Days my friend stay safe and healthy.

I'm in your gang Steve6 with the 4. All our 4 flights booked this year to Valencia from the UK have been cancelled with the last one in December being cancelled yesterday.

At least we have received refunds, which now pay for our petrol for driving down.

Lets hope things pick up for us all and we get some type of 4 back. A vaccine would be a bonus.
