Learner drivers warned about extra charges

The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) is warning learner

drivers to avoid copycat websites and save money by using GOV.UK.

GOV.UK is the only official driving test booking website
If you type the names of some popular government services into search engines, some of your search results might be ads for sites that offer a service you could get for free (or for much less) on GOV.UK, the government’s own website.
Driving test bookings
Some of these copycat websites offer to book theory and practical driving tests, and look like they might be official, but they actually charge a premium for their services.
Some websites charge:
up to £30 for just booking a test, on top of the driving test fee itself
a ‘pass protection’ fee with the promise of a free retest that very few customers actually qualify to use
Copycat websites don’t let you pick an actual appointment, and don’t give you instant confirmation of your booking.
GOV.UK is the only official driving test booking website for both theory and practical tests.
Using GOV.UK to book your test:
can save you money
lets you pick the exact date and time of your test
gives you instant confirmation of your booking
A car theory test costs £23 and a driving test costs £62 when booked through the official website; all driving test costs are at www.gov.uk/driving-test-cost.
