Have been in Spain for well over Two years. Have padron and recent new residency certificate from different addresses (different provinces). Shouldn't make a difference.

Hoping to meet some local bike enthusiasts later today to see if they know what's what. One guy is a Triumph riding total Anglophile - if anyone will help, he will.

Someone explained this the other day but I can't find the thread. I believe the consensus was if you have a Spanish car license you can ride any bike up to 125cc although A1 is not mentioned on the license so it does not cover other European countries. For reliable info on this consult dgt.es

I have a provisional car license in the UK which allows bikes up to 125cc, would that also count in Gran Canaria?

Thanks
