REVEALED: The cost of learning to drive around the world

UK is 5th most expensive country to pass your driving test.

  • New investigation from Veygo by Admiral reveals cost of learning to drive round the world
  • Malta is cheapest place to learn to drive and take a test
  • Hong Kong most expensive place to learn costing over £3,000 – more twice the price of the UK.
  • Some countries allow young drivers to start learning at 14 or 15
  • Eye tests, medical certificates and green L plates await those who pass

A new investigation from  learner driver insurance specialist Veygo by Admiral has revealed the cost of learning to drive is wildly different depending on where in the world you live, but Brits don’t have it too bad.

With costs ranging from just over £300 in Malta to over £3,000 in Hong Kong it seems some young drivers’ dreams of getting behind the wheel come at a significantly different price.

Looking at the cost of getting a provisional licence, driving lessons with an authorised instructor and the price of sitting your theory and practical tests, right through to converting it to a full licence, Veygo found startling differences.
