This is a question that continually crops up on our FB group page. Owning to misinformation from personnel at many vehicle dealerships. Nonresidents should not be registered on the padron (unless habitual residents of a town in Spain). Non residents many who own holiday homes here are entitled to purchase an car and the majority do. They are not registered on the padron. What is needed to purchase a vehicle is your ID such as passport or ID card and a NIE number.
Note* The padron is a census and could have tax implications for those registering. By being inscribed on the register, you are stating that you reside in Spain.
