I paid £62 just to book my practical so I'm in the same boat - I think it's a fairly standard price for it? I guess?

£24 is the cost of the theory test, not the practical. The practical is £62 and doesn't include your instructor's fee.

That’s not what I asked.
I’ve already paid the practical test, as it’s booked.
My driving is charging me £62 pound to drive him car as well

i paid £65, but i had an hour lesson right before my test. (1 hour) + (1 hour for test) + (45 minutes or so to get there and back) - this makes sense for the price but if you’re not getting a lesson right before the test then i think they’re charging a bit much

It sounds like they did answer what you asked.

They didn’t because I asked about my driving test with the instructor not how much I paid baseline for my test.

Driving theory costs £23.

Driving practical test costs £62 for the actual test. Then for me £20 for using the car during the test. And £25 for the lesson before the test.

How long is the journey? It is still time that he cannot earn from teaching someone else. It isn't free time.

I feel like OP is trying too hard to justify the other £14.

Gonna have to ask them what the £14 is for, we wont know, but I'd wager it's the taking you home part. And, well, even if not, it's their car and time they can charge what they wish, that's not a scam.

Ok, so counting around any faffing around, that is a good 30 minutes of your driving instructor's time. That is what I assume you are paying for here!

I paid £62 for the practical test itself and then £80 for car hire + 1 hour lesson before the test. My instructor waited outside in the cold while I did my test so props to him. Kinda expensive but I passed first time so makes it all worthwhile. Btw this is for West London price

That's only if you pass. If you fail, you can drive yourself back as you'll still be a learner. Either way, it's still using petrol and 20 minutes of your instructors time that he could be using to give someone else a lesson.

But I’ve already paid of that. I’ve paid for an hour before and the hour of the test that’s 48 so why is he charging 62.

No I wrote I can’t drive myself back. I don’t wish to. If I’ve passed I’ll be too over excited. If I fail I will be too glum too
