Wanted: information about ITV and nametransfer. I’ve bought me a car, but the cardealer refuses to put it on my name. His gestoria told me that he has to pay (fines, maybe?). The car gets on 16 june 2018 4 years, and need his first ITV. When I can’t arrange the nametransfer so quickly, who pays the fine when the Guardi Civil or Trafico gives me a fine for no valid ITV? And who payes the otherfines in the between?  Please reply to Graham in Torrox, grahamsanton@gmail.com
