Book tests at the new price

The changes for 2014 apply to theory tests taken from 1 October 2014. You can book tests for this date onwards from 20 August 2014. You’ll have to pay the old fee if you choose a test date before 1 October 2014.

Avoid extra charges when booking your test

You can also save money by making sure you use the official theory test booking service at www.gov.uk/booktheorytest. Other websites might charge extra fees.

By using the official booking service on GOV.UK you’ll only pay for the cost of the test itself.
