A consultation was launched on 10th April on changes to theory test fees. The cost of the driving theory test could be cut by 25% which would save learners £14.5m a year.
The proposals have been set out in a public consultation which would see the cost of the theory test fall by £6 in October this year to £25 with a further drop of £2 planned in October 2015.
The consultation follows the government’s commitment to reduce the cost of motoring which so far includes a cap on the maximum price of MOTs at £54.85 until 2015 and an extension of the fuel duty freeze until spring 2015. It also sets out proposed reductions for motorcycle, bus and lorry theory tests.
