It will cost you anything from £30-70 per exam, from my experience of browsing £70 per exam is the average, try to find somewhere cheaper.
If you are studying in a sixth form or college, I would advise asking if they would let you take the exams there. In addition, make sure you check when the exams you want to take are, using the exam board's exam timetable for Summer 2016, you won't be able to take an exam elsewhere if it falls on the same date and time as an exam you are taking at your current school or sixth form.

I did GCSE's outside of school. Here is some advice for applying to do qualifications outside of school.
Call your/a school/exam centre and ask if you can sit the exams. Because you are doing (further) maths I assume there will be no complications and it will be nice and sweet with not doing any course work. Which is great because course work sucks. You will also need to pay for them.
As for the GCSE's I did they were: Further maths, maths, physics, chemistry, biology. I got A*ACCD. As you can tell I have some regrets with studying in the GCSE's. In the same year I did AS maths and got a B. This year I am doing A2 maths and AS further maths and A2 art.
Now for the love of god, make sure you STUDY. Just because you are doing maths doesn't mean you can do a couple hours of further maths a week then do a couple of past papers before your exam. Cover all topics ASAP and start doing the unofficial past papers AT LEAST 8 weeks before the exam. If you are doing OCR you will find like 15 past papers that maths teachers have made up across the country on the internet (just my experiance). Then do all the official past papers. Try to get full marks and even find a maths teacher to mark a couple of past papers for you.
I really hope you do well, enjoy studying at home
