THE first wave of letters sent out by the Direccion General de Trafico (DGT) in their most recent campaign to drivers of cars more than ten years old has revealed a series of errors in the official records.

Many of those contacted have turned out to have sold their cars more than 20 years previously, or to have scrapped them. In other cases, the owners have died.

A spokeman for the DGT commented that the first wave of letters had mainly gone out to owners of vehicles registered in the 60s and 70s, when many cars were scrapped or sold without the proper documentation.


  1. DGT do not know what they are doing ever. They’re one of the only administrations left that do not allow a correspondence address so if you live in the campo you’re stuffed.
    I sold my car with the proper paperwork and they’re still trying to make me pay the road tax.
    They haven’t got a clue!
