It's £62 on a weekday and £75 on a weekend. That's the only way I can see why you may have been charged more? Unless you booked a theory test too by accident, which costs 30 something.

Definitely email, phone, write to them etc. Don't let them rob you! Good luck

Id definitely phone them up and speak to someone in person to sort it out.

You've been scammed by one of those "copycat" websites. They are actually privately owned, are nothing at all to do with gov.uk, but are made up to look all official. They pay google to appear top of the listings and will charge you a fee (usually around £30) on top of the £62 test fee just for the privilege of booking the test for you.

When you cancelled via the official website, the DSA refunded you the actual £62 cost of the test.

To reclaim the remaining "booking fee", you should approach the owners of the original scam website where you booked originally. Check your browser history. Good luck with that.
