How much does the Theory Test cost in the UK?

The UK car and motorcycle Theory Test cost is £23, and the Driver CPC Part 1 multiple choice is £26.

Learner drivers of all vehicles should be aware that passing the Theory Test is just the first step on the road to becoming a qualified driver.

The first step for anyone is to apply for a provisional UK driving licence which costs £34.

Applying online is easy via the GOV.UK website, but you can also apply by post using a D1 form from the post office. However, applications via this method will cost £43.

Once you’re ready to book your Theory Test, remember to once again use the official GOV.UK online booking service as we know more learner drivers are falling foul of ‘charge to book’ driving and Theory Test websites.
