Driving test prices decreasing

The government have announced, from October 2014,  the Driving Test theory exam will reduce in cost. The theory exam will reduce to £25 this October 2014 and from October 2015 it will cost £23.  Currently it's £31 and the practical driving test is £62.  Take these costs into account with driving lessons which, on average, cost £24, it all adds up. Your first provisional driving licence is £62.50.  Buying a car, taxing it, insuring it driving lessons, tests and licence add up to a large amout of money.  It's not surprising the younger generation are finding it hard to find the money to learn to drive.  Hopefully this will help.

I took my practical driving test way back in the late 1980's and passed first time. When did you take you test and how much did it cost you?
