Changing to Spanish driving licence:
I changed mine last year through Gestoría Lopez Navas in Torre del Mar (they also have a Cómpeta office) at a cost of 75€.  The first communication received from Tráfico was a form to sign and return relinquishing entitlement to drive certain groups of vehicle which had been automatically included when my UK licence was originally issued – I only drive a normal car here (not a minibus or any type of motorcycle) so for me not a problem, but something to be aware of for some. I asked for their recommendation for the health certificate and they suggested Centro de Reconocimiento Médico Acharquia situated in Av. de Andalucía, 106, Planta 2, Puerta 6. You will need a passport size photo for the certificate. Cost 35€. I previously used a well-known local chain of clinics but I found Centro Acharquia far more professional in their approach and service to their clients. The whole process overall took 3-4 months until the new Spanish licence was received in the post direct from Tráfico. You will be given a temporary authority to drive in Spain while your licence is being processed which will be automatically renewed by the Gestoría if necessary. Excellent service from both the aforementioned businesses.

The first time seller tale:
As a seller on Digame I have to say that we were slightly disappointed by our experience. As a seller one takes time to photograph, correctly catalog the item, this ensuring that the prospective buyer knows exactly what is on offer. Then there are the rules that a person has to abide to regarding placing an ad on Digamextra.
A buyer recently indicated that they were interested in an item for sale. On agreeing where to meet which was half an hour away, and arriving at said meeting place, waiting 15 minutes, phoning perspective buyer, only to find that they had forgotten that they had a meeting. also they did not require the items for sale. We then had another half an hour return trip back home, time, fuel, effort wasted. Maybe before leaving home we should have taken the time to phone the buyer just to confirm that they were still interested in buying the item for sale. Lesson learnt from experience.
