Info Sought

Changing driving licence from English to Spanish: Has anyone been through this procedure recently? If so, any useful information would be appreciated. I believe a Medical is also necessary, so information on where to get that done too and what is the cost.

Car valleting: I would like to say a huge thank you and recommendation. My car has just been Warrened to an amazing standard and now looks like it’s just come out of the showroom. I can’t believe how he has made my car look years younger and can’t express enough how pleased I am. I have never met him before he picked up my car but found recommendations here on Digame. I entirely endorse those. His phone number is 618346098. I now have a new car (ish)!
