Learning to drive is an expensive outlay but the Government is lending a hand!
The cost of car and motorcycle theory tests will drop from £31 to £25 in October 2014, and then to £23 in October 2015.
The cost of the driving theory test will be cut by 25%, saving learner drivers in excess of £100 million over the next 9 years, Transport Minister Stephen Hammond announced today (23 June 2014).
The fee for a car driving theory test will fall by £6 in October 2014, 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.
Okay, not a great saving compared to the overall cost of learning to drive but “every little helps”!
