Well I'm completely clear over what is required and the same advice is given on this forum every time the question is asked

Yeah, but what will continue to happen is that people will come here having been given a lot of differing advice, not all of it correct.

Is there a separate thread on this anywhere?

Fred kindly posted the latest information on residency rules and I included them in the Free Beer thread under "Residency Rules".

Thanks. Actually found them last night. Guess I should have looked in 'Free Beer' before asking, but thanks for posting anyway!

I had no idea the rules had changed. Looks to have been made far simpler (in theory).

And of course beware the big move to the new penal code in Spain starting this Thursday 1 May. I had enough driving on UK plates so am going to try driving without any plate for a while and see how long it is before they catch up. Will give their speed cameras a challenge.

Thats quite OK jdr, they know who you are then.

Thought about making up one of those little yellow moped plates or even a Italian plate to confuse them but would then have to make up some forged papers too. Sounds all too complicated and better to try no plate at all and claim that someone nicked it for curiosity while parked outside the bar.

I have a nasty suspicion that that idea will get you a lot more attention than you might have really wanted.
