LIMITATIONS.- There are not limitations for a car registered after 40´s or 50´s. Some people think that historical plates may limit the use of a vehicle in Spain. That´s not correct. A classic or vintage car is limited only when it´s not able to be driven following traffic regulations. We explain this: "Imagine a vintage auto from the 20´s era with wood wheels and 50 kilometers per hour maximum speed. This kind of car is not ready to be driven in a highway, and if it hasn´t lights it´s not qualified to drive at nights". These are the limitations, it´s just comun sense. Most of cars after 40´s and 50´s are ready to be driven everydays, everytimes, all the ways.

If your car meets any of these requirements you may request the following documentation:

1.The previous inspection in an official laboratory accredited by the competent organ of the Junta de Andalucía.

2. Favorable resolution of the vehicle as historical documentation, issued by the competent organ of the Junta de Andalucía.

3. Technical inspection prior to registration or working in a station vehicle inspection of the province of domicile of the applicant.

4. And historic vehicle registration in the Provincial Traffic domiciled.
