Drivers who break the road rules in Spain face heavy fines. As a result, Romanians who wish to travel in this country with their own or a rental car should keep up-to-date with the latest changes to road laws.
Those without essential documents such as driver’s license and car documents will be fined up to 500 euros. In early March last year, authorities in Spain announced fines for drivers who do not keep their driver’s license, vehicle registration certificate and ITV (Technical Inspection of Vehicles) card up-to-date.
According to the Spanish Association of Cooperating Companies for the Management of Technical Inspection of Vehicles (Aeca-ITV), 36.4% of cars on the roads in Spain will not pass technical inspections in 2022.
During the control, if the driver cannot present one of the three documents listed above or if they have expired, he will be fined from 10 euros to 500 euros.
In some cases, in addition to the amount paid, there is also a loss of points on the card. Instead, as Giarul Romanianesque reports, while RCA insurance is recommended to remain in place, authorities no longer require it.
