Driving theory test cost to be cut

The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVLA) has announced that is has negotiated new terms with Theory test providers and would pass on savings to drivers sitting the theory test.

The cost of the test will fall by £6 in October 2014 to £25 followed by another cut of £2 in 2015.

Steven Hammond, the Transport Minister said “This has been achieved without compromising on the vital role the theory test plays in making sure that new drivers know The Highway Code and the rules of the road. I am delighted that theory tests will now offer better value for money while continuing to meet these rigorous standards”.
