MOT testing garages are required to generally stick to VOSA MOT retest regulations.

MOT re-test requirements are very perplex and extremely mundane. Let us set the scenario for you as regards when you're able to and will not get yourself a FREE re-test.

Initially, the initial rule is that once the car has failed its MOT, the necessary length of time to have any essential vehicle repairs to be executed and any following re-test is only 10 working days following the primary test date. This is true assuming that your vehicle or light commercial van is fixed and subsequently booked in for a re-test prior to the end of 10 trading days. If all of the aforementioned has been undertaken, that is when the computerised MOT device that all MOT test centres utilise should certainly, at that time, make it possible for us to register the car and perform the re-test.

So, it therefore ensues that the secondary rule tends to be that during an MOT test it's typically a fact that a handful of components might be tested again instantly whilst in contrast other items command considerably more deliberated checking out.

As an illustration;

  • Case in point the family car falls short on 1 tyre; a replaced tyre is simple to identify and a "fast track" MOT retest can be performed, consuming only a couple of minutes of the MOT testers valuable time and as a result will not attract a re-test charge.
  • Or a second case in point: Say the vehicle failed its MOT examination on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking system; in this instance the vehicle will need to be registered with your neighbourhood Hampsthwaite VOSA MOT garage for a part re-test and taken in to the MOT testing bay, once there an emissions check absolutely must be done, a light involved overall check executed in addition to a full-blown braking mechanism analysis undertaken. This work normally takes extra amounts of the MOT testers time, and accordingly it is going to often attract a re-test bill.

For that reason despite the fact that we, and practically every MOT test station, advertises and promises FREE tests this can be, commonly, dependant on when your vehicle is supplied for its MOT examination in Hampsthwaite and at that point what exactly the vehicle failed its MOT upon.

SIGNIFICANTLY - if, perhaps the car fails to pass its MOT examination with us here within Hampsthwaite VOSA MOT test station and is then mended by us, then following that we will invariably accomplish your retest FREE (i.e. at no cost to you), this is certainly our thanks to you for deciding to turn to our Hampsthwaite VOSA MOT test centre workshops.

If you desire further explanation, then this is a listing of the cost free retest items (if your car failed its MOT upon some of these problems then a rapid retest may very well be performed).
