Bike test price increase
Bikers will pay more for their motorcycle tests under new guidelines set to be introduced by the Driving Standards Agency.
It will cost an additional £2 for a standard test and £4 extra for an extended test from April 2, 2007. A standard weekday test would be £60 under the changes and an extended weekday test £120.
The extra £170,000 earned in revenue from the price increase should go towards paying for changes in motorbike tests with new manoeuvres and faster speed testing set to be included. New centres are also being built to cope with the new off road element of the test. Quality bikes for sale: Click here.

Other changes which will affect all road users include increasing the price of the Highway Code and to promote its use. The new price will be £2.50 per booklet.
Road users will have until January 11, 2007 to pass on their thoughts to the DSA before the new rules come into force.
