First Time Driving Test Passes To Be Given A Cash Refund

The Department of Transport have announced that first time Driving Test passes may be given a rebate of the test fee as a new government plan intends to raise the low first-time pass rate which stands at just 21%.

Transport secretary Patrick McLoughlin said: “This change will give those who pass first time some money back and provide an incentive for learners to be more prepared before they take their first test.”

Learners drivers who fail their first attempt Driving Test will not get a rebate on the £62 charge under the proposed plans, which have been put out to public consultation by the Department of Transport.

“There is anecdotal evidence that some learner drivers are booking a Practical Test date well in advance, at the start of their lessons, and then taking the test at that time whether or not they are ready,” the consultation states.

Steve Gooding, director of the RAC Foundation, said the organisation backed the proposals.
“We support measures that will encourage learner drivers to get the experience they need to pass their test first time with flying colours, rather than barely scraping through or failing and having to repeat the process a few months down the road at yet more expense,” he said.

The consultation closes on 8 January and the department will respond later next year.

Driving Lessons Reading

Once again, Driving Examiners and Vehicle Examiners are planning to take strike action at various times during the beginning of December 2015.

Some Driving Examiners who are members of the Public and Commercial Service (PCS) union are planning to take strike action.

PCS has planned action at various times from Tuesday 1 December until Friday 4 December 2015.

Tues 1 Dec - North East, North West and Scotland
Wed 2 Dec - West Midlands, East Midlands, Yorkshire and Humber and Wales
Thurs 3 Dec - London, South East, East of England and South West
Fri 4 Dec - All of Great Britain

Advice To Driving Test Candidates:
Not all of the Examiners are union members and the DVSA expects most Driving Test Centres to operate as normal. You should still turn up for your test as planned.

Changing Your Driving Test Date:
You can change your test to another date if you want to.
Please note: You must give at least 3 clear working days notice to change your test date or you will lose your test fee.

What If Your Driving Test Is Cancelled:
The DVSA will book you a new test appointment automatically if there's no Examiner available for your test.

You will be rebooked for the earliest available date and the DVSA will send you the details of the new appointment.

Claiming Out-Of-Pocket Expenses:
You can claim out-of-pocket expenses if your test is cancelled, but you must have turned up for your test to be able to do this. If you don't turn up, you'll have to rebook your own test and won't be able to claim expenses.
