Driving test fees
When you book your theory or practical driving test direct with the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), you only pay the cost of the test. There is no extra administration or booking fee.
Driving test fees if you need to take a retest
If you don't pass your theory or practical test, and want to take another test, you'll have to pay again. You have to pay the full amount for any retests that you take - DVSA doesn't give discounts for retests.
Use gov.uk to book your driving test
DVSA recommends that all learner drivers book their driving test on gov.uk. gov.uk is the only official driving test booking website.
Other websites offer driving test booking services, but might charge extra administrative fees on top of the DVSA fee. This is why the fees shown on some websites are more than the amounts shown on this page. Those websites are not run by or connected to gov.uk or DVSA.
If you have used an unofficial booking website you might be able to get your money back.
DVSA gets complaints from customers who have used unofficial booking websites. In most cases these websites are doing nothing illegal. This means that DVSA’s powers to respond may be limited.
If you have used an unofficial booking website, you might have seven working days to cancel your order and get all your money back. However, this will depend on the terms and conditions of the website you used.
