Update on changes to HGV and bus driving tests
We wrote to you recently about the Driver CPC part 3 test being split into 2 separate parts, which we now have an update on.
Learner drivers will take:
These are the prices for the tests:
As a government agency, we have to recover the costs of the services we provide through the fees we charge.
The current test fee does not cover all of our costs. So we’re keeping the part 3b test fee the same as the current part 3 test fee. This will help cover the extra costs of approving and auditing trainers who provide part 3a tests. Because people taking the part 3b test will have already passed the part 3a test, they will be in a better position to pass first time and avoid the potential cost of a retake.
Also, people who now take a test towing a trailer with a large vehicle no longer need to have passed a test in a rigid vehicle first. This saves them £115 by not having to take 2 tests.
We’ll keep the current fees under review.
We’ve sent more detailed information to everyone who has a test booked to tell them how they are affected.
