MOT testing stations should observe VOSA MOT retest procedures.

MOT re-testing protocols tend to be extremely perplexing and also monotonous. Let us set the landscape for you in regards to when you are able and will not obtain a FREE re-test.

To begin, the first rule is usually that as soon as your family car has failed its MOT test, the required period for the completion of any repair and any pursuing re-test is only 10 trading days after your original day of test. This is valid so long as the family car is remedied and thereafter registered for a re-test prior to the end of 10 business days. If all of the above has been undertaken, consequently the computerised MOT test program all MOT garages utilise will definitely, at this time, make it possible for us to register the car and perform re-test.

So, it therefore follows that the second procedure would be that within the MOT re-test it is often times the case that some issues are often re-tested quickly nonetheless on the contrary particular points warrant a good deal more deliberated checking.

To illustrate;

  • To illustrate your family car falls short on 1 tyre; a replacement tyre is straightforward to identify and a "fast track" MOT test may be done, consuming just a couple of minutes for the MOT tester to take care of and so would never attract a re-test bill.
  • Or an additional case study: Let's suppose your car failed its MOT check on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking system; in this case the vehicle or light van will need to be enrolled with your local Redditch VOSA MOT test centre to obtain a partial re-test and driven into the MOT testing bay, and then an emissions check absolutely must be accomplished, a light exhaustive over-all check accomplished including an extensive brake assessment performed. This work more often than not takes further quantities of the MOT testers time, and consequently this will likely customarily attract a re-test charge.

For this reason even though we, and each individual MOT station, promotes and offers FREE tests this is actually, in many instances, based on when your vehicle or light van is delivered for its MOT test in Redditch and therefore what exactly the family car failed the MOT upon.

IMPORTANT - if it turns out the car fails to pass the MOT check with us here in Redditch VOSA MOT garage and it is thereafter mended by us, then following that we are able to almost always accomplish a retest FREE (i.e. 100 percent free), this is our thanks to you for opting to try our Redditch VOSA MOT test garage workshops.

If you need more explanation, then what follows is a listing of the cost-free retest items (if your vehicle failed the MOT on some of these items then a rapid retest can be carried out).
