Getting About Driving When driving in Spain always have your driving license, passport and car hire documents with you. If you get stopped by the police and cannot produce these documents then you will get a large on the spot fine. A tip…. If you are heading south on the AP7 toll road towards San Javier, Murcia or the airport - avoid joining at the La Zenia junction as you will have to pay a toll charge as soon as you get on! Instead if you use the Dhesa de Campoamor junction (just south on the N332) you will not have to pay toll all the way down to the airport and back!
