The Finnish Transport and Communications Agency gave Finns a barren Christmas present – This is how it appears in your wallet


The Finnish Transport and Communications Agency’s prices for Traficom’s services will increase at the beginning of next year.

The increases will affect, among other things, the acquisition of a driving license when the price of an application for a driving license increases by two euros, the driving test for a category B vehicle by six euros, the theory test for a driving license by three euros and the application for a driving license by four euros.

The largest price increase announced by Traficom is for the first registration of a boat, which will increase from 30 euros to 40 euros in electronic transactions and from 40 euros to 60 euros in personal services.

“The need for the increase is due to the increase in the level of costs and the development of electronic service systems related to the provision of services, with the aim of providing an even smoother service experience for customers. In order to minimize the need for an increase, the Agency has also actively taken efficiency measures, ”said on Traficom’s website last Thursday.
