MOT test stations should comply with VOSA MOT retest policies.

MOT re-testing rules tend to be rather confusing and really uninteresting. Permit us to set the landscape to help you as regards when it's possible to and will not have a FREE re-test.

Initially, the primary rule is that when a your family car has failed its MOT, the applicable length of time for any requisite improvements to be made and any pursuing re-test is just 10 working days after the primary day of test. This is true on condition that the family car is remedied and then registered to acquire a re-test ahead of the end of 10 business days. If all of the above has been completed, consequently the computerised MOT application that all MOT test garages utilise will likely, at this time, make it possible for us to register the vehicle or light commercial vehicle and carry out the re-test.

The 2nd procedure tends to be that at the time of an MOT test it's very often the case that a handful of elements may be re-tested instantly although on the flip side various items necessitate significantly more deliberated testing.

As an example;

  • If for instance your vehicle falls short on 1 tyre; a changed tyre is straightforward to see and a "fast track" MOT retest can be carried out, consuming only a matter of minutes of the MOT testers energy and so should not attract a re-test charge.
  • Or a second case study: Let's suppose your car fails to pass the MOT check on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking systems; in such cases your family car is required to be registered with your local Redhill VOSA MOT test garage to get a part re-test and driven in to the MOT testing bay, and then the emissions examination ought to be completed, a far less intensive all round examination carried out as well as a full-blown braking mechanism assessment administered. This work routinely will take extra amounts of the MOT testers time, and consequently it's going to more often than not attract a re-test expense.

Accordingly even though we, and pretty much every MOTing centre, advertises and offers FREE tests this is definitely, nearly always, dependant upon when the car is supplied for its MOT test in Redhill and then just what exactly the vehicle or light van failed the MOT upon.

SIGNIFICANTLY - in the event your vehicle fails its MOT examination with us here at Redhill VOSA MOT testing centre and its at that point fixed by us, then it follows that we can invariably perform the retest FREE (i.e. free of cost), that's our thanks to you for opting to make use of our Redhill VOSA MOT test centre workshops.
