MOT testing stations have got to abide by VOSA MOT re-test rules.

MOT re-test protocols tend to be very confusing and also boring. Let's set the landscape to help you in regards to when it's possible to and will not acquire a FREE re-test.

First, the primary rule would be that after the car has failed its MOT, the requisite period to have any vital corrections to be accomplished and any resulting re-test is exactly 10 business days following the initial day of test. This is correct so long as your car is repaired and subsequently scheduled in to have a re-test prior to the end of 10 working days. If all of the aforementioned is the case, subsequently the computerised MOT test process all MOT centres employ is able to, at this juncture, permit us to register your vehicle and do the re-test.

So, it therefore follows that the secondary rule would be that at the time of an MOT re-examination it is commonly a fact that a small number of points can be tested again immediately whilst on the flip side many items mandate a good deal more calculated analysis.

By way of example;

  • If for instance your vehicle or light commercial vehicle is rejected on 1 tyre; a replaced tyre is simple to find and then a "fast track" MOT retest can be done, taking only a little while for the MOT tester to execute and so won't attract a re-test expense.
  • Or another scenario: Let's imagine the family car failed to pass its MOT examination on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking system; in such cases the family car should be registered with your nearest Walton-On-Thames VOSA MOT testing garage to acquire a part re-test and taken to the MOT test bay, once there the emissions test is required to be carried out, a not so exhaustive overall check out completed in addition to an extensive braking system assessment completed. This work mostly requires increased hours of the MOT testers time, and consequently this will likely typically attract a re-test charge.

And as a result even though we, and pretty much every MOT centre, advertises and boasts FREE tests this could be, ordinarily, based on when the family car is provided for its MOT check in Walton-On-Thames and subsequently specifically what your family car failed its MOT on.

SIGNIFICANTLY - if perhaps your car fails the MOT check with us here within Walton-On-Thames VOSA MOT garage and is then repaired by us, then in that case, we will invariably do your retest FREE (i.e. 100 percent free), and that is our thanks to you personally for preferring to try our Walton-On-Thames VOSA MOT garage workshops.

If you would like additional clarification, then listed here is a selection of the gratis retest items (if the vehicle failed its MOT on these elements then a quick retest could be performed).
