If dirt and debris are embedded into the area of the chip, it will make the repair less effective or even impossible.

Spanish registered trailers or caravans that weigh more than 750kg have to have their own registration number in Spain.

What Happens If You Have No Car Insurance In Spain?
SPANISH CAR INSURANCE IS A LEGAL REQUIREMENT AND FAILING TO INSURE YOUR CAR WILL INCUR HUGE PENALTIES
When either purchasing a motor vehicle in Spain or bringing one into the country, it must be insured so that you can legally drive it. Drivers that are insured in other EU countries as well as Norway, Liechtenstein and Switzerland are now automatically covered for third party liability in Spain. However, it is important to note that this cover does not last forever and most policies from other countries will only cover in foreign countries for a certain period of time. So, you must check how long this cover will last as you could be caught out. Some drivers have been unknowingly driving without being covered in the past as their policies only allowed their vehicle to be covered in a different country for 6 months.
Driving with no Spanish car insurance is taken very seriously in Spain and the police are always clamping down as there are a reported 2 million uninsured drivers on the roads. The punishment for being caught with no car insurance in Spain can lead to fines of up to 3000 euros or even prison depending on the severity of the crime. There are no warnings or strike systems either, once caught you are punished. Often your car will be taken and you will be left to cover the costs of the tow truck or as they are called here ‘la grua’. Once insured, to avoid confusion or hassle, we highly recommend that whilst driving you always carry your ID, insurance documents and proof of last payment.
