(a)the fee payable on application for a first test, a periodical test, a re-test or an appeal is increased from £25·00 to £28·00; and

(b)the fee payable where an application for a re-test is made within 21 days from the date of service of a notice of refusal of a goods vehicle test certificate is increased from £16·00 to £17·50.
