Advice Needed  Re Van registration      I have a right hand drive Vauxhall Vivaro Combi van with side windows behind the front seats – so, good vision. The local police stopped me the other day and said I have 30 days to re-register to Spanish plates or remove it back to the UK.    I live here now (non resident) and clearly want to re-register, but when I went to the DGT in Malaga, they said ‘impossible’ to have Spanish plates. I was told by the local police, thereafter, that I CAN register to Spanish plates.   Also, on the way back from Malaga, I saw a practically, brand new Transit Van, right hand drive and no side windows, on Spanish plates.    What’s going on? Can anyone shed any light on this please? If so, what to do next.    Please email jgathwalker@yahoo.com     Jeff Gath-Walker. Torrox Costa
