Detail of outcome
Driver licensing fees – the government’s plans following consultation.
This consultation is about proposals to increase fee income to pay for DVLA’s driving licence services.
As a result of new EU definitions and standards to be implemented by January 2013, DVLA must make system and process changes. This has meant a review of its current fee structure to consider the best way to cover the resulting costs.
The aims of the proposal are to:
- generate the same level of income aimed to recover the additional EU3D related costs by 2020/21
- increase the fee income according to the forecast volumes for that service
- promote accuracy of DVLA records, by avoiding the introduction of fees for changes of personal details
- recognise the social importance of driving for renewal of licences at 70 or for medical renewals and notifications
These would be monitored as part of DVLA’s annual review of fees
