licences driving temporary

Temporary Driving Licences.
Have a friend driving around with the receipt for his UK driving licence and is waiting to collect his Spanish driving licence soon.

His temporary receipt is time limited. Not sure of the exact date but it's in the next couple of weeks. 

Anyone know if the Traffic Office is open or even operating?

I'm assuming it is closed for the duration. 

Anyone know if there has been an official word on extending the life of these receipts?

Tom sorry can't help exactly but on the basis that in the current circumstances as the ITV's have been extended by 6 months then I would have thought that other things like the receipt might be extended the same.

Definitely not open, Tom. This is at their website:

Due to the situation that we experience as a result of the state of alarm, we inform that the service is temporarily suspended to carry out procedures at Traffic Headquarters , also cancelling appointments that were previously assigned. At the moment we cannot attend you in person, ask if it is possible that we will attend you through other channels .

Stay informed of the last hour of the DGT's actions during the health alert by COVID-19.

They can try to shoot them an email at and see what they'll come up with. I'm sure your friend isn't the only one in a similar situation and will be allowed to drive. Especially if they'll carry the email reply with them in the car.
