Cost of a driving theory test

If you are learning to drive a car in the UK, then there is not just the practical test to think about.

You must also pass a theory test in order to be able to take the driving practical test and ultimately to become a qualified driver.

There is a fair amount of work required in order to pass the theory test, and you should familiarise yourself with all the necessary material. The other sections of this site give you more details about the questions and the test itself.

With regard to cost, the prices vary depending on the test that you are taking. For a standard car driving theory test, the price is £31 for that test. This works out at half the cost of the practical test, which costs £62 during the week, or £75 at evenings and weekends.

Because there is a cost associated with the driving theory test, then you will want to pass it first time. This means that it is worthwhile putting the hours in doing your preparation. One of the best ways of doing this is by subscribing to our site where you can take a range of tests all using the actual questions that you will face in the theory test proper.
