Spain´s Director General of Traffic (DGT) has announced it will scrap fines for drivers found not to be carrying their driving licenses

The DGT will now allow drivers to present a digital version of their licenses. The app, mi DGT, is available on Google Play and Apple´s App store and will be accepted by the police once it is registered by the user.

Once registered, the DGT will send an SMS code to activate the app. Fines for not carrying a license used to start from €10. That law has now been scrapped.

The Directorate-General also recently declared that it will no longer issue traffic tickets to companies or organisations who own or lease vehicles on a long-term basis, including car rental agencies.

However, unless they have a digital certificate, people will continue to get their notices via mail as they have in the past. Companies are now notified of fines via DEV (Dirección Electrónica Vial) since the system changed on November 1st.
