Can I have a UK and a Spanish driving licence after the UK leaves the EU?

As a Spanish resident, I must exchange my UK driving licence for a Spanish one since, whilst in the EU, I can only have a licence from one country. After 1 January 2021, when we have completely left the EU, will it be possible to regain the UK licence, as well as the Spanish one since I expect to spend more time in the UK than in Spain? If so, how do I achieve it?

DVLA said: "We can only issue driving licences to drivers who are resident in the UK. By law, if you apply for a GB driving licence you must also surrender any other exchangeable driving licence you may hold – for example, a driving licence issued by an EU state. Therefore, it is not be possible to hold both a GB licence alongside a Spanish licence."
