Seven traffic offences will no longer cost drivers points off their licences under new law

Under Spain’s new traffic law, published in the Boletín Oficial del Estado (BOE), seven traffic offences will no longer incur points on driving licences, though they can still incur fines. The new rules will apply from today, and the seven are:

  • Driving on motorways or dual carriageways with prohibited vehicles
  • Driving with over 50% more occupants for which the vehicle is equipped
  • Parking or stopping on bends, hills, tunnels, junctions or any other dangerous places
  • Parking or stopping in a bus lane
  • Driving without lights when they are required
  • Riding motorbikes or mopeds with under 12 year olds as passengers
  • Reckless driving causing danger to other road users
