MOT testing garages have to obey VOSA MOT retest regulations.

MOT re-testing rules tend to be very intricate and intensely uninteresting. Permit us to set the landscape for you in regards to when it's possible to and can't acquire a FREE re-test.

For instance, the primary rule is the fact that when a your car has failed its MOT test, the critical time period for the completion of any repair and any resulting re-test is absolutely 10 business days following on from the primary test date. This applies assuming that the family car has been remedied and then scheduled in to have a re-test ahead of the end of 10 working days. If all of the aforementioned is true, subsequently the computerised MOT programme that all MOT centres have is designed to, at this time, enable us to register your vehicle and carry out the re-test.

Accordingly it therefore follows that the subsequent rule is the fact that in the course of an MOT test it's commonly true that lots of items could be re-tested fairly quickly though conversely several elements command more specialised analysis.

As one example;

  • If for instance your family car is rejected on 1 tyre; a new tyre is a breeze to distinguish and a "fast track" MOT test can be performed, taking only a matter of minutes of the MOT testers time and hence will not attract a re-test charge.
  • Or a different example: Let's suppose your family car failed get through the MOT test on headlamp aims, emissions, and brake system; in this instance your vehicle or light commercial van needs to be signed up with your neighbourhood Rowanfield VOSA MOT testing station for the part re-test and taken to the MOT test bay, once there an emissions check must be performed, a lighter involved overall check completed and a complete braking system check performed. This work typically will take additional amounts of the MOT testers time, and that's why it'll typically attract a re-test fee.

Accordingly even though we, and each individual MOT centre, promotes and promotes FREE retests it's, in many instances, dependant upon when your vehicle or light commercial van is brought for its MOT assessment in Rowanfield and successively precisely what your car failed its MOT upon.

IMPORTANT - in case your car failed to pass the MOT test with us here at Rowanfield VOSA MOT testing garage and its at that point repaired by us, then in this case we shall invariably do a retest FREE (i.e. at no cost to you), this really is our thanks to you for preferring to benefit from our Rowanfield VOSA MOT test centre workshops.

If you require greater explanation, then below is a list of the gratis retest items (if your vehicle or light commercial van failed its MOT over any one of these things then a fast track retest can be undertaken).
