MOT test centres should comply with VOSA MOT retest policies.

MOT re-testing protocols tend to be really convoluted and incredibly unexciting. We want to set the scenario to help you in regards to when you might and cannot receive a FREE re-test.

Firstly, the first rule tends to be that when a your vehicle or light van has failed its MOT test, the critical length of time for the completion of any repair and any following re-test is exactly 10 trading days following the first day of test. This holds true so long as the car is remedied and following that scheduled in to have a re-test ahead of the end of 10 business days. If all of the aforementioned is the case, in that case the computerised MOTing software program that all MOT centres work with is able to, at this point, permit us to register your car and carry out the re-test.

The secondary rule is often that within the MOT re-examination it is often times a fact that a number of items may be tested again almost immediately nevertheless in contrast other components command significantly more focused testing.

Here is an example;

  • If for instance your vehicle fails on 1 tyre; then a replaced tyre is easy to recognize and a "fast track" MOT test can be carried out, taking only a jiffy of the MOT testers energy and thus would not attract a re-test cost.
  • Or a further scenario: Let's imagine the car failed the MOT examination on headlamp aims, emissions, and brake system; in this situation your vehicle or light commercial vehicle will need to be enrolled with your neighbourhood Royal Tunbridge Wells VOSA MOT testing centre to get a part re-test and taken into the MOT test bay, then the emissions analysis ought to be carried out, a significantly less exhaustive overall check carried out in addition to a complete braking system assessment performed. This work generally requires further quantities of the MOT testers time, and as a result this could often attract a re-test cost.

That being said whilst we, and each individual MOT test garage, advertises and offers FREE tests it is, in most cases, based on when your car is supplied for its MOT test in Royal Tunbridge Wells and at that point specifically what your car failed its MOT on.

NOTABLY - in case your family car fails its MOT test with us here within Royal Tunbridge Wells VOSA MOT test station and it is thereafter mended by us, then in that case, we shall almost always facilitate your retest FREE (i.e. at zero cost to you), this is certainly our thanks to you for making a choice to benefit from our Royal Tunbridge Wells VOSA MOT centre workshops.

If you require further explanation, then right here is list of the cost free retest items (if the family car failed the MOT on some of these things then a swift retest could be executed).
