Personally i think the practical test price needs dropping further, apparently it's going to, time will tell though.

Theory Test was £31 last year, then dropped to £25 and now dropping to £23 from tomorrow.

Other price drops

Abridged car theory test dropping to £18

Driver CPC module 1 (part 1): lorry and bus multiple-choice questions test) dropping to £26

Driver CPC module 1 (part 2): lorry and bus hazard perception test) dropping to £11

Driver CPC module 2 : case studies test dropping to £11

Approved driving instructor (ADI) part 1 test £81

So, in theory it is becoming cheaper to drive a car, though that may not be borne out in practice.
That is great news
hahaha already posted yesterday gooni and you are a mod. tut tut please read the rules !
just booked mine today for November for motorcycle. wanna get it done
Good news for the youth of today considering how much they have to fork out for insurance these days.
Practical test seems a bit expensive at £62, although cheap compared to a Microsoft or VMWare exam. :-)
Booked one a few days ago for one of the trainees, as it was for after the 1st the new price was already applied.
Theory test price came down and they will start failing people more

It's not just £62 for a practical test really is it... You need to hire a car for 2-3hours which would cost anywhere from £60

​and they will hire it out / insure it to someone on a provisional?
Anyone recommend any books or software for car theory practice

Apps for Android/iOS by Deep River Development I found to be very good. Worth the few quid for the full version and hazard perception practice. Just passed my ADI part 1 using them to practice.

That's all you'll need for the theory, hazard perception is the tricky part, don't click to soon because you'll see the hazard long before the computer recognised it.

I paid £2100 for my first year driving a 1.0L punto 10 years ago . So it's nothing new for this generation

Doesn't need to have the dual controls for test (or even for lessons).
You could do it in your own car.

I know you can hire dual control cars from Arnold Clark so they obviously insure a non-qualified driver. Would still work out quite expensive though. Hourly rate and bear in mind travelling from hire location to test centre and then back again after test.
Not sure about National though.

No sure how this is a "deal".
Unlike commodities like Gold and oil, the price of these tests will stick in price so will not even fluctuate
DVLA don't do driving tests. DVSA is the organisation responsible for those.
Great for those who keep failing and have to go back.

Ouch! I take that back!
Oh great, I just passed mine not two weeks ago! :P

My advice to anyone doing it is do as many online mock tests as you possibly can and there are some free apps available as well.

I passed mine first try without purchasing any books or learning software.

Good luck!
Great I am due to take my theory test

Its ridiculous the price nowadays. I'm a new driver and recently paid £2k for insurance on a 1.2 03 plate fiesta
