I have just got a letter though, meaning that due to a change in legislation and improvements to the service, bookings made since 1November 2005, may have been ''unintentionally'' charged at a higher rate - which shouldn't have been allowed due to the relevant regulations.

I won't go into detail (I'm in a bit of a rush!), but the relevant legislation has now been changed so that the premium fee can now be charged, so, if you have paid an increased price for a test on a saturday between now and 1Nov 2005, contact the DVLA, as you may be worthy of a partial refund to the sum of the difference, for each test not given a refund (ie. for being called off due to snow).


It's not like the DVLA to give money very often, so enjoy!

I don't doubt that they'll neglect to tell a select few, so I thought I'd post it up

I took a Sunday test and it cost £10 more than a standard day. Pity Sunday isn't included in this.
