DSA Warns of Expensive Unofficial Driving Test Booking Sites
The DSA has issued fresh warnings over unofficial driving test booking websites that charge exorbitant fees on top of the agency's own prices.
In most cases these booking services are not doing anything illegal, but the DSA is keen to point out that they are not connected to the DSA or the Government's Directgov website, which candidates use to make the bookings.
Some websites have been charging up to 65% over the standard fee. As well as warning learner drivers about the dangers involved in using unofficial test booking sites, the DSA is enforcing its trademarks and getting Trading Standards involved to make sure that websites are not able to mislead consumers.
The cost of a Car Theory Test in the UK is £31, and a Car Practical Test is £62 (£75 on Saturday).
Tests can be booked through the following link:
www.direct.gov.uk/drivingtest or through this website.
