MOT test garages should generally obey VOSA MOT retest requirements.

MOT re-testing protocols are pretty convoluted and really dull. Let's set the scenario for you as regards when you're able to and will not acquire a FREE re-test.

First, the very initial regulation tends to be that when a the vehicle or light commercial van has failed its MOT, the requisite time period for the recommended improvements to be made and any pursuing re-test is precisely 10 business days following on from the first day of test. This holds true so long as the vehicle or light commercial vehicle is mended and successively registered for a re-test before the end of 10 trading days. If all of the above is true, that is when the computerised MOT test programme all MOT test stations utilize should certainly, at this time, make it possible for us to register the vehicle and carry out the re-test.

The secondary rule would be that within the MOT re-examination it's frequently a fact that just a few points may be re-tested right away nevertheless alternatively a quantity of elements call for significantly more measured assessment.

To provide an example;

  • If for instance your vehicle or light commercial van falls short on 1 tyre; then a changed tyre will be easy to find and a "fast track" MOT test can be performed, consuming only a minute or 2 of the MOT testers time and for that reason wouldn't attract a re-test fee.
  • Or a second example of this: Imagine if the vehicle failed to pass its MOT examination on headlamp aims, emissions, and brake system; in such a case the car ought to enrolled with your nearest Redcar VOSA MOT test garage for the partial re-test and taken to the MOT test bay, once there an emissions test has to be done, a much less intensive all around examination performed and then a complete brake check done. This work customarily requires added hours of the MOT testers time, and because of that it is going to as a rule attract a re-test bill.

That being said even though we, and each and every MOT garage, promotes and offers FREE tests these are, mainly, based upon when your vehicle is provided for its MOT examination in Redcar and subsequently just what the vehicle failed its MOT on.

IMPORTANTLY - if, perhaps your family car fails get through the MOT test with us here within Redcar VOSA MOT centre and is at that point fixed by us, then it follows that we can definitely complete a retest FREE (i.e. at no cost to you), it is our thanks to you for deciding to use our Redcar VOSA MOT testing garage workshops.

If you're after extra clarification, then here's a list of the cost-free retest items (if the car failed the MOT over some of these points then a quick retest could very well be performed).
