It appears that the price vary depending on what country you are from, so if you paid a different price let us know in the comment below.
We recommend you to ask at your local DMV what is the price you are supposed to pay. In Italy it is the same all over the country. You can immediately get for free the manual to study on and pay the fee the day you take the theory exam. Remember that you need your SSN to get your driving license.
If you want to start searching some info you can Google DMV (department of motor vehicles) plus the name of your state.
