But needs to go up having been told what R/T examiners are charging for a bit of ground school and test.
I'm charging 50 for ground school and test, additional 20 for the Com written if they haven't already done it (usually the microlight lot). My justification for the charge is
a) loss for flying revenue for a morning (which is what it usually winds up taking)
b) recovery of Examiner fee from CAA.

It's very rare for a candidate to present capable of doing the test straight off - I'm not in the habit of testing people I know are going to fail and I do try to be reasonably straight with the test. I'm satisfied when people
a) say they've learned a lot by doing the test and
b) I hear them on the radio subsequently being a lot more professional
