A short while ago I finally had to produce my driving papers at a check point. Thankfully I had just finished all my renewal stuff and was ready as we approached the orange cones.
We have been through others many times but never were stopped, this time we were. A smile, a couple jefes (it means boss/ sign of authority or head person) thrown in and off we went.
I was always anxious in the past at these as my spanish is ok but mostly in situations I know, I struggle a bit when caught cold, but eventually manage ok.
Now while driving I am confident as we approach a checkpoint that we will not have any issues.
until next time........
