The Ministry of Health plans to update the rate for performing a psychological examination for drivers. This change results from the draft amendment to the regulation of the Minister of Health on psychological examinations of persons applying for driving licenses, drivers and persons performing work as drivers (it has already been submitted for consultation). Currently, the price for such a test is PLN 150. However, she will soon increase to PLN 200.

The rate currently in force has not changed for 10 years (it has been constant since 2014). The justification for the project included a provision explaining its increase. We can read that the proposed price for the tests “is consistent with the actual cost of conducting them, it takes into account both the time of carrying out these tests, as well as depreciation of equipment (devices) and the costs of maintaining the premises, which was confirmed in letters from the entities performing them.” However, before the regulation comes into force, the current price for the test is still valid.
