When is tener best used and when is haber used?
Welcome to the forum, gerorge odum!
I am not sure how much Spanish you have under your belt, but I am presuming you are asking about sentences such as "I have a car" and "I have driven my car."
"Tener" is used to mean possession. "I have a car" - "Tengo un coche."
"Haber" is an auxialiary verb used with the past participle to form one of the perfect tenses. For example, "I have driven my car" - "He manejado (conducido) mi coche."
I hope that this very general explanation has helped. Please ask for more clarification or give specific sentences you want help with, if necessary.
