The cost of car and motorcycle theory tests will drop from £25 to £23 for tests taken from 1 October 2015.
Environment Minister, Mark H Durkan, said: “I am pleased that I am able to pass on to learner drivers, savings in the cost of theory tests that I have made through new contract arrangements.
“From this October, the fee for car and motorcycle theory tests will fall by £2, taking the cost of a test from £25 to £23. Theory test fees for other types of vehicle will also be reduced. I know that this may not seem like a lot of money to some people, but at a time when money is tight,
I’m sure learner drivers will welcome this news.
“This is the second of a two-phase reduction which sees the cost of taking a theory test reduced by almost 25% – from £30 in April 2014 to £23 in October 2015. The latest reduction will apply to theory tests taken from 1 October 2015, and learner drivers can now book tests for this date onwards.”
