British citizens NOT in possession of a licence that conforms to the EU three part printed pink document will require an international driving licence when driving in Spain. Non British citizens need to contact the Spanish Consulate in London for advice on driving licences. No person under 14 may ride a motorcycle. 14 year olds may ride motorcycles up to 50cc (or 45 kms maximum). 16 is the minimum age to ride machines 50 to 125 cc and 18 for over 125cc. A permit is required in all cases.

It is required that drivers carry two warning triangles, a complete set of spare bulbs, fuses and spare wheel as well as the appropriate tools to replace them. Drivers requiring glasses need to carry a spare pair at all times when driving. As for fuel, whilst it is against the law to carry spare fuel, drivers would be made responsible, and fined accordingly, should their cars be immobilised on the road for shortage of petrol. All drivers are required to wear a reflecting jacket of high visibility when getting off their vehicle in intercity roads.
