MOT testing garages must absolutely abide by VOSA MOT retesting procedures.

MOT re-test procedures tend to be particularly challenging and incredibly unexciting. Let's set the stage for you in regards to when you're able to and cannot obtain a FREE re-test.

For instance, the very first rule is that when a the car has failed its MOT, the requisite time for all the vital car repairs to be made and any subsequent re-test is just 10 trading days after your first test date. This applies provided that your car is remedied and accordingly registered for a re-test ahead of the end of 10 working days. If all of the above has been achieved, that is when the computerised MOT software program all MOT garages utilize is able to, at that time, let us to register your car and perform the re-test.

Thereafter it therefore follows that the second procedure is usually that in the course of an MOT re-examination it's nearly always a fact that one or two elements might be tested again speedily nevertheless on the contrary several issues command more focused examination.

For instance;

  • If for example the family car falls short on 1 tyre; then a replacement tyre is a breeze to recognize and then a "fast track" MOT retest can be accomplished, this would undoubtedly take only a matter of minutes for the MOT tester to execute and for this reason wouldn't attract a re-test fee.
  • Or one more illustration: Let's say the car fails its MOT check on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking system; in this case your vehicle or light van will need to be scheduled with your local Holland On Sea VOSA MOT testing garage to obtain a part re-test and taken in to the MOT testing bay, once there the emissions check has to be done, a light intense general check executed including a complete braking system assessment undertaken. This work as a general rule takes further hours of the MOT testers time, and consequently it is going to often attract a re-test bill.

For that reason although we, and nearly every MOT test garage, advertises and boasts FREE retests this is, more often than not, dependant upon when the vehicle is brought for its MOT examination in Holland On Sea and therefore what precisely your vehicle or light van failed the MOT upon.
