If you are planning on a trip to Spain or are a resident of Spain but planning on a trip to some other country, make sure you obtain an International Driving License (IDL) before you travel. This crucial piece of document can take you anywhere around the world from a day to a few weeks, depending on whether you're going through walk-in processing or applying via mail, so make sure to plan in advance if you're planning to drive on your international trip.
An international driver’s license in Spain is required by law if public transport is not an option and you plan to operate a vehicle in Spain – regardless of whether you're renting a car in Spain or booking an international rental which will take you briefly across the Spain border. Once you arrive in Spain, you won’t be eligible to obtain the license, so it is important that you do so before departing on your trip. IDL Worldwide recommends that you apply for an IDL at least one month ahead of your scheduled trip.
