A friend of mine who has been resident in Spain for many years was pulled over for not having his headlights on during dusk and was fined heavily because he didn't have a Spanish license. The police didn't like it because they couldn't give him points.

Another motivation for getting a Spanish driving license is that it works as a form of id here, which you need for using credit cards, etc. The alternative for UK nationals is to carry round your passport the whole time, which is a pain.
