There is a section on the DGT (Direccion General de Trafico) page in English that might help
It is important that your car is on Spanish plates and you have a Spanish address to which your Driving Licence is also registered. If DGT knows your address then they “should” send
the traffic violation ticket to that address. It is up to the driver to ensure that DGT have the correct address. Everything in Spain is registered with the NIE number.

Recommendation – Chimney Sweep
Firstly thank you to those who previously recommended Diego on DigameXtra. On your recommendation we contacted him to see if he covered our area as well. He did and carried out an excellent job at a very reasonable price, leaving everything spotlessly clean. Having identified a problem with the chimney construction he also repaired that for us, again at a very reasonable price. He speaks very good English too.
He can be contacted on 952515065 or by email at
