There has never been a better time to start learning to drive! The BBC has reported that “the fee for drivers applying for a provisional driving licence online will fall from £50 to £34” from 31st October.
New drivers need a provisional licence before they can start taking driving lessons so this is a significant reduction in the cost of getting started, especially when combined with my “5 for £99” offer.
Transport Minister Claire Perry said: “The cost of driving, especially for young drivers, can be significant and we are committed to cutting costs where we can.”
“Thanks to DVLA making large scale savings to their running costs, we have been able to cut the cost of the driving licence which will save drivers and businesses £150 million over the next 10 years.”
