Not to worry. Brexit will make it all so much better. Farage and Johnson promised us it will be so. We just have to wait a bit. Baaa Baaaa Baaaa
I can't speak for the rest of Spain, but in Mallorca, you can take the test in a choice of about 7 languages, including English.
Morgan WilliamsThere is even a test in English I'm told. So no one has to put up with it in some 'foreign' language. But even that is not good enough for some people it seems.
Less cars on the road is better for the rest of us.
Can anyone point out any time when legally resident Brits have ever been denied getting a legally required Spanish driving licence? Not legally resident? Been living here 20 years and never bothered to obtain legal residence? Well, that's a bit of a problem now 😳 Surprise! there isn't any cake. And without a cake, it's rather difficult to eat it. Maybe you should write it on the side of a bus. Didn't do much for the NHS, but it made Boris and a few others feel better. For a while. Like this one will. Until it wears off. But you'll still need to get a licence. And nobody's stopping you. Except yourself.
Huge Idiot really had been useless.
Ulla JacksonUlla, Brexit is only one of the consequences (albeit in this case amongst the most damaging) of governance by hubristic jingoist ideology rather than reality. Since Britain is the best (by jingo) it's a foregone conclusion that it can only be everybody else's fault.
This saga will go on and on and on ......
Morgan WilliamsIt "your" fault the UK voted for Brexit. This is what is happening when you became a third country, treated just the same as any other country, not part of EU. So if you can't be bother it's a matter for you and noone else.
Hey I’ve got pigeons in my garden again. But the frost on the bird bath has melted.
