The proposals, which could save learner drivers in excess of £100m over the next 9 years, are contained in a public consultation on changes to theory test fees. The plans would see the cost of a car driving theory test fall by £6 in October this year, taking the cost of a test from £31 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. It also sets out proposed reductions for motorcycle, bus and lorry theory tests.
In-Tuition comment: It's very rare these days that the cost of anything comes down so this price reduction would certainly be a welcomed by the consumers and everyone in the driver training industry.
