Ministers to put ceiling on driving licence cost

The government is to bring in a maximum fee for driving licences after it emerged that prices vary widely all over the country.

The cost of a licence varies from €63.90 in Deventer to just €22.80 in Leidschendam, according to research by free newspaper Metro.
‘The highest prices are far too high. This cannot be done,’ transport minister Camiel Eurlings says in Tuesday’s Telegraaf.
The government has already introduced a maximum price for passports because of the wide regional variations.
