Avoid copycat GOV.UK websites
Drive4Life instructors are concerned about pupils being OVERCHARGED on some copycat websites when booking their driving test.
If you type the names of some popular government services into search engines, some of your search results might be ads for sites that offer a service. You could get this service for free (or for much less) on GOV.UK , the government’s own website.
Some of these copycat websites offer to book theory and practical driving tests, and look like they might be official, but they actually charge a premium for their services.
Some websites charge up to £30.00 for just booking a test, on top of the driving test fee itself
a ‘pass protection’ fee with the promise of a free retest that very few customers actually qualify to use.
Copycat websites don’t let you pick an actual appointment, and don’t give you instant confirmation of your booking.
Save money by using
GOV.UK is the only official driving test booking website for both theory and practical tests.
