Driving licence fees to be slashed

25 October 2014

Screen Shot 2014-10-25 at 09.54.07From the 31st October, driving licence fees will be slashed up to 32%, the government has announced.

Under these new rules the cost of a provisional licence will now be £34 from £50 and the reduced cost for an online application for a 10 year licence will be £14 from £20.

We'll also be seeing the cost of a tachograph reduced to £32 from £38. These are used by businesses to stalk record how far their staff are driving.

Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Danny Alexander said the move was designed to "give savings back to the taxpayer".

Personal thanks from me, Danny. Just another 9 years and 3 months until I can look forward to that £6 "saving".

    These are used by businesses to stalk record how far their staff are driving. Yeah, nothing at all to do with them having to do that by law is it?

    The Dvla are shit. They need to make sure all the details they take are kept up to date. Taking full licences off people and giving them no recourse.
