Changing the effective date on a Spanish driver’s license

One of the downsides of getting your drivers license here in Spain is that you lose your safe driving history and get crappy insurance rates.

Turns out that there is an easy solution:

Get the driver’s record from your home country and the consulate in Barcelona can write you a letter saying that you got your license on a certain date.

You can take this letter to the traffic office in Sabadell and they will set your start date on your license to match when you originally got your first license in your home country.
