Learner drivers to pay less for theory tests

The cost of the driving theory test will be cut by 25%, saving learner drivers over £100 million over the next 9 years.
The fee for a car driving theory test will fall by £6 in October this year, taking the cost of a test from £31 to £25, with a further drop of £2 in October 2015.

Theory test fees for motorcycles and other categories of vehicle will also be reduced. The changes have been confirmed following a public consultation.

We want to make sure that we continue to keep pace with customers’ needs and deliver services in a way which is both convenient and cost effective.”
