In August 2021, DVSA wrote about proposals to increase most DVSA statutory fees by a 1.5%, the DVSA has now published the results of the consultation.
DVSA received 2,573 responses to the consultation, 68% of respondents said that the proposed fee increases were fair whilst 21% said they strongly disagreed with the increase.
As a result, Ministers have agreed to increase most statutory fees. As an example, at an increase of 1.5%, a weekday car practical test will increase by 90 pence and an MOT slot fee will increase by 3 pence.
To allow time for the necessary changes to regulations, the fee increases will not be introduced until later in 2022.
DVSA will keep us updated of their progress, allowing you to let your customers know, in advance, when fees are going to be increased.
