How much does the Theory Test cost in the UK?

20 pound notes

The car and motorcycle Theory Test cost in the UK is set at £23, but the Driver CPC Part 1 multiple choice will cost £26. See our table for all the costs..

Learner drivers of all vehicles should be aware that passing the Theory Test isn't the first step on the road to passing the final driving test and 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 aslo 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.
