MOT testing garages must absolutely comply with VOSA MOT re-test policies.

MOT re-test regulations are fairly perplexing and incredibly challenging. We want to set the landscape to help you in relation to when you can actually and will not get a FREE re-test.

For instance, the initial rule is always that after your family car has failed its MOT, the recommended amount of time for all the important adjustments to be finished and any resultant re-test is absolutely 10 working days following on from the primary day of test. This applies so long as the vehicle or light van has been repaired and successively registered to get a re-test before the end of 10 trading days. If all of the aforementioned has been achieved, consequently the computerised MOT application all MOT garages utilize will certainly, at this time, make it possible for us to register the vehicle and perform re-test.

So, it thus follows that the subsequent rule is often that at the time of an MOT re-examination it's more often than not true that some components might be re-tested quickly whilst on the flip side various points will need much more specialised testing.

As one example;

  • To illustrate the vehicle or light commercial vehicle is rejected on 1 tyre; then a changed tyre is easy to spot and then a "fast track" MOT retest is feasible, consuming only a little while for the MOT tester to perform and as a result wouldn't attract a re-test cost.
  • Or still another case study: Let's assume the vehicle or light van fails get through the MOT test on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking system; in such cases your vehicle or light van must be signed up with your neighbourhood Shavington VOSA MOT testing garage for a partial re-test and driven directly into MOT test bay, and then an emissions test must be done, a less exhaustive all round check out executed coupled with an entire braking system analysis completed. This work ordinarily takes additional quantities of the MOT testers time, and and so it is going to more often than not attract a re-test charge.

So even though we, and virtually every MOT test station, markets and boasts FREE tests this could be, generally, dependant upon when the car is presented for its MOT assessment in Shavington and successively specifically what your vehicle or light commercial vehicle failed the MOT upon.

IMPORTANT - if it turns out the family car failed it's MOT examination with us here at Shavington VOSA MOT garage and its afterwards mended by us, then following that we will always conduct your retest FREE (i.e. 100% free), that is our thanks to you for deciding to make full use of our Shavington VOSA MOT centre workshops.
