The problem is that what we have is a VAN with windows and I am told that it is almost impossible to register a right hand drive VAN in Spain. (Unless anyone knows different!!).

We've asked Motability about buying the van from them but as we would be closing the lease early they will not allow that and we have got to hand it back. Apparently they will only sell you your vehicle at the end of the lease.

If you are only going to be in Spain for a couple of months initially it might be worth renting a van. (Google - Wheelchair accessible vans for hire in Spain).
It seems that the Spanish authorities will not allow a person to register a right hand drive VAN in Spain although the will permit right hand drive cars, so it does not seem worth buying a van in the UK and taking it to Spain.
Hi David thanks for the info, I have seen the website you mentioned and it's good news that wheelchair accessible vehicles are now available, I think we are just going to use wheelchair accessible taxi's until we move over full time.
