MOT testing stations should normally comply with VOSA MOT retest procedures.

MOT re-test rules are relatively confusing and extremely mundane. Let's set the scenario to help you as to when you can and will not receive a FREE re-test.

To begin with, the first regulation would be that when a the family car has failed its MOT test, the mandatory time frame for your critical corrections to be done and any pursuing re-test is just 10 working days following your initial test date. This holds true as long as the family car is fixed and then booked in to get a re-test ahead of the end of 10 business days. If all of the above has been undertaken, consequently the computerised MOT device that all MOT test garages use should certainly, at that time, allow us to register the vehicle or light van and perform re-test.

So, it thus follows that the subsequent rule tends to be that at the time of an MOT test it's very often a fact that a handful of elements might be tested again speedily but on the other hand many items might need more calculated assessment.

To give an example;

  • If for example your vehicle fails on 1 tyre; then a new tyre is to determine and a "fast track" MOT test can be accomplished, taking only a short while of the MOT testers energy and for that reason should not attract a re-test cost.
  • Or an alternative illustration: Say your vehicle fails to pass its MOT test on headlamp aims, emissions, and brake system; in such a case your family car will need to be registered with your nearest West Bridgford VOSA MOT test station to secure a part re-test and taken to the MOT testing bay, and then the emissions analysis would have to be executed, a lighter rigorous all around check accomplished together with an extensive brake check performed. This work typically requires further hours of the MOT testers time, and and so this could in general attract a re-test bill.

For that reason whilst we, and nearly every MOT garage, promotes and boasts FREE tests it is, quite often, determined by when your family car is made available for its MOT test in West Bridgford and following that just what exactly your car failed its MOT on.

IMPORTANT - in the instance that your family car failed get through it's MOT test with us here within West Bridgford VOSA MOT test garage and its at that point mended by us, then following that we are able to generally accomplish ones retest FREE (i.e. at zero cost to you), and that is our thanks to you for preferring to make full use of our West Bridgford VOSA MOT testing garage workshops.
