PROPOSED INCREASES in the fees charged by the DVSA (formerly Vosa and the DSA) for a range of services have still not been confirmed — more than seven months after a consultation on the proposals ended.
The consultation, which ran from 30 April to 11 June last year, suggested the new fees were expected to take effect by the end of 2013.
It proposed a 15% to 20% rise in charges for annual vehicle tests at DVSA test stations, with fees rising from £98 ex-VAT to £113 (up 15.3%) for a two-axle truck and from £123 to £145 (up 17.9%) for a three-axle unit.
A DVSA spokesperson said: "The outcome of the fee consultation is being analysed. It will be published once ministers have considered the views and what action they intend to take."
