Re: A vehicle is a vehicle

Interesting - I wonder if he could end up with points on a driving licence from riding an electric scooter while drunk? Not at the moment but he will get an equivalent fine. You don't get points 'on' a licence in many European countries but you have them removed from it. As an example in Spain you ...

Re: Driving licences for UK citizens after March 2019

It seems you may need two separate IDPs if driving through France to Spain, as thousands do each year. It is of course not certain and as some Spanish say - Nadie lo sabe - Nobody knows. It could be the 1968 one or the 1949 one....France and Spain require different IDPs it seems. Who will do the enf...
