Driving test fees

When you book your theory or practical driving test direct with the Driving Standards Agency (DSA), you only pay the cost of the test. There is no extra administration or booking fee. Find out how much your theory or practical driving test will cost.

Use Directgov to book your driving test

Use Directgov

DSA recommends that all learner drivers book their driving test on Directgov

Directgov 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 DSA 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 Directgov or DSA.

DSA recommends that all learner drivers book their driving test through the official booking service on Directgov.
