8:59 pm on 3 June 2010

The Government has confirmed changes to drivers' licence fees.

Transport Minister Steven Joyce says fees for 19 services will be reduced and fees for 22 services will increase.

The cost of getting a full licence - including the learner and restricted stages - will rise from $282 to $330.

The cost of renewing a licence will drop by 3% to $43.

Mr Joyce says he has asked officials to do a long term review of licencing and testing, to ensure customers and taxpayers are getting value for money.
