DVSA Update: Fees consultation results

Fees consultation results

We wrote to you in August 2021 about our proposals to increase most DVSA statutory fees by a modest 1.5%

We wanted to let you know that we have now published the results of the consultation.

DVSA received 2,573 responses to the consultation.  68% of respondents said that the proposed fee increases were fair. 21% said they strongly disagreed with the increase.

You can read the full report by visiting GOV.UK https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/changing-the-cost-of-dvsa-services-for-2021-to-2022/outcome/changing-the-cost-of-dvsa-services-for-2021-to-2022-response-to-consultation

What happens next

Ministers have agreed to increase most of our statutory fees.

As an example, at an increase of 1.5%, a weekday car practical test will increase by 90 pence and an MOT slot fee will increase by 3 pence.

To allow time for the necessary changes to regulations, the fee increases will not be introduced until later in 2022.

Keeping you updated

We will keep you updated of our progress and will let you and our customers know, in advance, when fees are going to be increased.  

Thank you for taking the time to respond and share your thoughts with us in the consultation period.
