More than thirty of the services provided by the DGT can be performed by telephone, internet, or mobile application.

As a result of the Covid crisis, the DGT has accelerated the digitisation of its services, making more than thirty services available online without having to make an appointment or go in person to the provincial Traffic headquarters.

This drive for digitisation is a commitment by the DGT to offer citizens another way of communicating with the administration, in a more comfortable, faster way, and with the same guarantees as if it were done in person.

Although the Electronic Headquarters of the DGT began its journey at the end of last year with the inclusion of some administrative management, the Coronavirus has been a particularly important driver in accelerating the digitisation of many other services.

According to Miguel Martín, IT Manager of the DGT, the Electronic Office pursues a triple objective: “to better organize the information on the procedures that can be carried out digitally with the DGT, secondly to offer personalised information and services through the my DGT section, and thirdly to improve the accessibility and usability of the Headquarters to make the user experience more pleasant”.

In the Electronic Office you can find everything related to a holder’s driving licence or vehicle: request a duplicate of the licence, a temporary withdrawal, the payment of a fine or consult important information related to the DGT.

The Headquarters is accessible in all the official languages ​​of the Spanish State, Catalan, Basque and Galician, and also in German, English and French.

According to Martin, “the objective is that by next year, practically all of our procedures do not require face-to-face travel, especially those with the greatest volume and impact.”


Some of the procedures available via the online service are:

Transfers (change of ownership)

Vehicle report

Usual driver communication

Temporary withdrawal Notification of Vehicle registration temporarily deregistered sale


Final discharge

CAT Authorized Centres (scrap yards)

Ordinary registration and green plates

Regarding the procedures related to the driving licence, the DGT also offers the possibility of carrying them out or presenting them without going to the headquarters.

The latter is the most common query with 21 million queries made.
