MOT testing garages need to abide by VOSA MOT retesting procedures.

MOT re-testing protocols are extremely bewildering and dull. Let's set the landscape for you as to when it's possible to and will not get a FREE re-test.

Initially, the very first regulation is usually that as soon as your car has failed to get through its MOT, the crucial period of time for your necessary improvements to be done and any resultant re-test is precisely 10 working days following the original MOT test date. This applies as long as your car has been remedied and successively registered to acquire a re-test prior to the end of 10 working days. If all of the aforementioned is true, consequently the computerised MOT process that all MOT test garages depend on will, no doubt, at that point, allow us to register the vehicle and perform the re-test.

The subsequent rule is the fact that within the MOT re-examination it is sometimes a fact that various elements are often tested again easily whilst conversely other points call for far more specialised assessing.

For instance;

  • For instance your vehicle fails on 1 tyre; a changed tyre will be easy to see and then a "fast track" MOT test can be done, this would take only a matter of minutes for the MOT tester to perform and thus would never attract a re-test expense.
  • Or yet another example of this: Let's assume the vehicle failed its MOT test on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking systems; in such cases your family car really needs to be scheduled with your local Swindon VOSA MOT test centre for the part re-test and driven directly into MOT test bay, and then an emissions assessment ought to be carried out, a much less comprehensive all around examination executed in addition to a comprehensive brake test undertaken. This work commonly requires extra quantities of the MOT testers time, and that's why this will certainly in general attract a re-test fee.

That being said even though we, and just about every MOT station, advertises and promotes FREE retests this is really, generally, dependant upon when the family car is made available for its MOT check in Swindon and consequently specifically what the vehicle or light van failed its MOT on.

IMPORTANT - in the instance that your vehicle fails get through its MOT check with us here in Swindon VOSA MOT station and its then repaired by us, then following that we are able to definitely facilitate any retest FREE (i.e. at no cost to you), that is our thanks to you personally for choosing to benefit from our Swindon VOSA MOT testing centre workshops.

If you want extra clarification, then here's a list of the 100 % free retest items (if your car failed the MOT over one of these matters then a fast track retest could very well be completed).
