The licence application fee is £210 for a three year licence, except for front line vehicle immobiliser licences where the fee is £210 for a one year licence.
The fee is to cover the cost of processing your application and is not refundable; it must be paid in full before we begin processing your application.
If you pay your own licence fee you will be able to claim tax relief against your taxable income - please visit the HMRC website for more information.
