5th Oct 2016
You are allowed to drive a foreign-registered vehicle in Portugal for a maximum of 183 days before you either matriculate it to a Portuguese registration or return it to the country of origin for a further period of not less than 183 days.
If you are driving a foreign-registered vehicle in Portugal, it must be taxed, tested & insured in its country of registration throughout its time in Portugal. If the GNR or police catch you with an overstaying vehicle or one without tax, valid test or insurance, they can (and often do) permanently confiscate the vehicle, which they will then be sold or destroyed.
