I was arrested on late Friday night/ early Sat morning in Moraira

Pregunta del cliente

I was arrested on late Friday night/ early Sat morning in Moraira after being involved in a traffic accident with another vehicle. I only have a UK provisional license and had made a decision to drive my husband's car home (my husband was in the passenger seat) because he had a headache due to high blood pressure. At the time I had no idea you could not drive here on a provisional license because in England you can drive as long as you are with a person who holds a valid driving license.

I do not speak much Spaninsh and had no idea why they were taking me into custody. They kept asking me if I had been driving. I said "yes". I spent approximately 2 hours in the police station in handcuffs and eventually they gave me 4 pieces of paper to sign and told me I have to appear in court in Denia on Tuesday of this week.

I did not take a breathalyser test and wouldn't know what the words are in Spanish to know. Nobody showed me a breathalyser kit.

They removed the handcuffs so I could sign the forms and I told them I didn't want to sign as I didn't understand what I was signing. The police man threatened to put the handcuffs back on me if I did not sign the forms. I asked for copies of the forms and he refused to give them to me. He only gave me the form with my court date on it.
I had drunk 3 glasses of wine during the course of the evening and probably would have been over the limit to drive.

Both our car and the other car are damaged. I think the other driver was driving too fast as I have been back to the scene and there are skid marks on the bend on her side of the road. No one was seriously hurt but I did bang my head and the other driver has cuts and bruises (not serious).

What should I do and what punishment could I get?

Hi

 

The worst thing you are involved its driving without a legal licence and not allowed the police to make the alcohol test.

 

Ask for an speaking engilsh attorney at the lawyers colegio in Alicante

 

Here i s the official site

The punisment its always money if you do not have more criminal problems in spain and you could get an arregment with the judge in order to get the third part of it out.

 

Your attorney will inform about the options you got when the police gives him your inform

 

In the civil part, if you are declared gilty you will have to pay for the damages because insurances do not pay when driver has got not a legal driver licence.

Dear Ms..
You should seek the services of the Bar to appoint him an attorney fluent in English.

You face a penalty of withdrawal of driving license and a fine could be around 1000 euros. nothing more. You are not at risk of incarceration.
