New Car Registration Document

From the 1st of August this year, the ‘Car Registration Document’ or ‘Documento Único Automóvel (DUA)’ will be changed from a paper copy to a plastic card, similar to that of a citizen card.  The aim is to make carrying these documents easier as they can be stored in a wallet or purse.  This new format will apply to all new cars registered after the 1st of April this year and be compulsory from 2020.
It is estimated that by the end of 2019 at least 1.7 million car registrations documents will be issued, of which approximately 200,000 will be in the new format.
