Getting your car, or tank, on the road in Spain

Michael John Creagh, a retired English army Colonel, is having a bit of trouble getting his motor on the road in Almeria. For some reason they won’t let him pass the ITV (UK equivalent = MOT). Apparently he can’t confirm the vehicle’s weight, but then, where do you weigh a Spartan Armoured Personnel Carrier? The full story in Spanish, and photos, can be found at

“Spanish Society doesn’t understand me,” says Michael… Well, we here at Notes from Spain do! Michael, if you are out there, get in touch and tell us your side of the story!
