Driving test charges set to increase

Wed, 22 Mar 2023

The cost of a driving test on the Isle of Man is set to rise.

Tynwald Members will be asked to approve changes to a range of fees relating to driving licences and tests, vehicles registrations, inspections and administration at next month’s sitting.

If approved, certain fees will be increased or decreased by a specific amount in order to create an equitable fee structure. Others have a proposed rise of around 25% in line with inflation since 2013, when they were last increased.

The cost of a first or subsequent provisional licence will fall to £14 from the current £22 price of a first provisional — while a full licence for drivers aged under 66, renewed every 10 years, will rise from £36 to £45.

Driving test charges will increase for both cars and motorcycles, from £57 to £72.
