As their post was put on here less than 24 hours ago you are being very quick to think in that manner.

Subject to having been registered with DGT before the cut off date licence exchanges will be carried out under the pre Brexit rules which state that you cannot be deprived of entitlements, they may however be subject to national rules on age, medicals, and periods of validity.

For groups above B and BE medicals are required either on an annual or bi-annual basis and those are noted on the licence by their expiry dates.

Whether such an exchanged licence would be accepted by a Spanish employer is another question, before Brexit EU rules might have obliged it, now as 3rd county nationals probably not.

I think people who are waiting for an 11th hour agreement to be able to exchange licences might as well switch to plan B now, the British government already said they just wanted a bare trade agreement to have as little to do with the EU as possible so I don't think negotiating agreements with the whole bloc or 27 individual countries about exchanging driving licences is high up on their list.

When I went for my medical (don't laugh) in November I was asked which categories I wanted to keep.

The nice lady then explained some of them were not valid in Spain anyway and others would need immediate retests due to the fact that the Uk allowed longer durations between tests than Spain.

Just checked my temp permit and it appears Ive lost A but can still drive AM,B,BE,C1,C1E up to 8.5t.
Bit miffed about losing the full bike one but hey ho.

the theory test can be done in English but not the practical.

reference: personal experience in Murcia

Basically for any Brit thinking of living in Spain forget residency requirements etc. If you want to drive you will need to learn Spanish

Challenge that as there is no reason that you should loose your A entitlement.

When I went for the medical, she only included the category for driving cars and left off lots of categories.

I went back for the place where I had the medical and she reissued the form with more categories.

But she still left off f, k, l, n & p.

To be honest I'm not that bothered, the quality of driving here puts me off having another bike and the wife never liked me having one anyway.
(used to ride from Luton to Wembley every morning, through the countryside, with a big grin all the time) getting too old these days and I like to look at places as Im driving not just watch a blur go by.

The OP has decided not to go to Spain ? Perhaps now preparing to migrate to Scotland or Wales.

Scot, when Scotland leaves the UK and re-joins the EU, OP will be faced with the same problem with the driving licence... Just saying...

Scots get independence in exchange for having to speak Spanish ? 😅

Breakfasttea.

Your logic defeats me. Most Scots, alas have the same attitudes to learning and using other languages as do our Southern neighbours.

This thread is about working in Spain. Please stop all of the other chats that have nothing at all to do with Spain.

So a man or women in their 60s wants to continue working and support a family in a country where he or she has no language/work skills? Good luck with that one.

Seriously, this had to be a wind up post.
