Cost of theory test to reduce by 25%

Could save motorists over £100 million over the next nine years

THE cost of a theory test is being reduced by 25% in October, potentially saving learner motorcyclists and drivers roughly £100 million over the next nine years.

Theory test prices are being cut down from £31 to £25, with a further £2 drop scheduled for October 2015.

Transport Minister Stephen Hammond said: ‘We are determined to keep motoring costs down, so we want to make sure theory tests offer the best value for money while continuing to meet rigorous standards.’

Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency Chief Executive, Alastair Peoples, explained: ‘By agreeing new contract arrangements for the delivery of theory tests we have secured significant cost savings, and it is right that we pass these savings on to our customers. 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.’
