Fees under review

These fees were last agreed in 2004, and are currently under review and negotiation.


The publication of these fees is to inform doctors of the 2004 rates so you may inform the DVLA of your own fee for which you charge (VAT to be paid on top, where applicable).


These fees must be paid by the DVLA and in way no way from the patient.

For further assistance on advising your patients on medical conditions that may affect fitness to drive, visit the DVLA website for guidance.
