Can I Regain Categories Lost When changing Driving Licence to Spanish Version?

Yes you can. You would have to order a Certificate of Entitlement from the DVLA. The certificate will have a list of all the categories you originally had. Then go to Trafico in your area, explain the situation and ask them to rectify. You will have to pay for the new licence. You may be asked for a new medical certificate as the medicals for heavier categories are not the same as for regular tourism vehicles.
