MOT testing stations need to obey VOSA MOT retesting policies.

MOT re-testing protocols are fairly perplexing and extremely unexciting. Let's set the landscape to help you in regards to when it's possible to and cannot obtain a FREE re-test.

To start with, the primary regulation is usually that as soon as the vehicle has failed its MOT, the necessary period of time to have any appropriate corrections to be accomplished and any resultant re-test is just 10 trading days following on from the original day of test. This is valid so long as the vehicle or light van has been remedied and following that registered to acquire a re-test ahead of the end of 10 working days. If all of the above has been completed, subsequently the computerised MOT test programme all MOT test centres utilise ought to, at that point, let us to register the car and perform the re-test.

Following that it therefore follows that the 2nd rule is within the MOT re-examination it's frequently true that a couple of items can be tested again almost immediately nonetheless in contrast specific issues have the need for far more deliberated assessment.

By way of example;

  • For instance the vehicle or light commercial vehicle is rejected on 1 tyre; then a changed tyre is to find and a "fast track" MOT retest is feasible, this will take just a little while for the MOT tester to accomplish and therefore wouldn't attract a re-test cost.
  • Or another scenario: What if the family car failed its MOT test on headlamp aims, emissions, and brake system; in this instance your vehicle will have to be registered with your neighbourhood London VOSA MOT garage to secure a part re-test and taken in to the MOT test bay, then an emissions check needs to be carried out, a significantly less concentrated all round check carried out coupled with an entire braking mechanism check undertaken. This work ordinarily takes additional hours of the MOT testers time, and for this reason this will likely as a rule attract a re-test expense.

Accordingly while we, and practically every MOT test garage, advertises and promises FREE tests it will be, almost always, dependant upon when the vehicle is presented for its MOT test in London and then just what exactly the vehicle failed its MOT upon.

SIGNIFICANTLY - in the case your vehicle fails the MOT examination with us here in London VOSA MOT garage and is then mended by us, then following that we'll generally perform your retest FREE (i.e. free of charge), and that is our thanks to you personally for preferring to utilise our London VOSA MOT test centre workshops.
