Default Certificate of entitlement

I had been living in Spain a few years had. Spanish driving license but I had it stolen reported it to Spanish police, now I’m in UK wanting to get UK license back, but they say I need a certificate of entitlement ? Any idea how I can get this and where from. As I say I’m not in Spain so where can I email to get this?

Basically it is details of your driving licence validity, points, classes etc

Start with DGT . In theory they have a phone number which you can ring from abroad +34 902 887 060.
Alternatively go to their website and look up personal details

To access that site you will need either a digital certificate or a (the) Spanish mobile phone number you have registered with them to receive a PIN number.

A CoE is a document the country which issued your current licence (Spain) provide to another country (UK) in order to show that you are entitled to be holding that licence and not disqualified.

Normally DVLA would acquire that themselves using the information and numbers from your Spanish licence but absent that they cannot thus they are putting the onus on you to provide it.

Assuming you do have an electronic certificate or a Spanish phone number to expand on the previous post here are the full steps.

On the next page click Acceso a miDGT where you will be asked for either Cl@ve, an electronic certificate, or be able to request a one time PIN number, for Cl@ve or a PIN you will require the Spanish mobile phone number you have registerd with DGT.

Once you're in then half way down the RH side you will see Verification de certificados
On the next page click Inform de datos actuales.

This takes you to a page where you enter your DOB, then click Confirma then Obtener el informe which should generate a downloadable .pdf of your CoE.
