If you had an appointment assigned to make the exchange of driving license as of March 16, 2020, the day the State of Alarm period began, you can continue processing your exchange request online.

Check the country of issuance of the permit to be exchanged and register your request with the required documentation.

Before starting, you must make sure on this web page that you have confirmed the exchange of your permit. For any questions, you can contact the Dirección Nacional de Tráfico through the phone number 060.

To carry out this procedure it is necessary to have electronic means, like a Digital Certificate, or Cl@ve Pin.

What is the Cl@ve Pin?

Cl@ve is an electronic identity verification platform for the identification and authentication of citizens. Registration in Cl@ve is relatively simple and very useful when accessing any bureaucratic procedure in Spain.

It is a way of carrying out procedures over the Internet with a limited validity in time and that can be renewed whenever we need. This electronic identification system is based on using a code chosen by the user and a PIN (or “key”) communicated to the phone through the Cl@ve PIN app or with an SMS message.

It is mandatory to register in advance in the system. We also have a very useful tutorial on how to register in the Cl@ve platform, step by step.

What are the advantages of registering?

  • It’s simple and very useful since you don’t need to always remember a password.
  • Its validity is limited in time, which makes it more secure.
