MOT test garages must comply with VOSA MOT retesting procedures.

MOT re-test regulations are really confusing and unexciting. Let us set the scene to help you as to when you're able to and will not obtain a FREE re-test.

To begin, the first rule would be that as soon as the car has failed to get through its MOT, the obligatory time frame for your desired car repairs to be done and any following re-test is exactly 10 working days after the original day of test. This is correct providing that your car is repaired and following that scheduled in to acquire a re-test before the end of 10 working days. If all of the aforementioned has been completed, in that case the computerised MOT application that all MOT garages utilise is designed to, at this juncture, permit us to register the family car and perform re-test.

So, it accordingly ensues that the secondary procedure tends to be that in the course of an MOT re-examination it's repeatedly the case that certain elements can be re-tested almost instantly whereas alternatively specific issues command far more calculated analysis.

One example;

  • If for example the vehicle falls short on 1 tyre; a replaced tyre is straightforward to spot and a "fast track" MOT test can be carried out, taking only a short while of the MOT testers energy and therefore definitely would not attract a re-test bill.
  • Or yet another scenario: Imagine if your vehicle or light commercial vehicle failed get through its MOT check on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking system; in such cases the car will need to be enrolled with your local Tonbridge VOSA MOT testing station to acquire a partial re-test and brought directly into MOT test bay, then an emissions evaluation must be done, a lighter involved general check out done coupled with an extensive braking system analysis conducted. This work commonly requires further quantities of the MOT testers time, and accordingly this certainly will normally attract a re-test charge.

For this reason while we, and each individual MOT test station, advertises and offers FREE tests it is, routinely, influenced by when the vehicle or light commercial vehicle is supplied for its MOT check in Tonbridge and then what specifically the vehicle failed the MOT on.

NOTABLY - assuming the family car fails its MOT examination with us here at Tonbridge VOSA MOT test garage and is then repaired by us, then in that case, we can invariably perform a retest FREE (i.e. absolutely free), this is our thanks to you for opting to turn to our Tonbridge VOSA MOT testing station workshops.

If you want in depth clarification, then right here is number of the free of charge retest points (if the vehicle failed the MOT over any one of these areas then a fast track retest could be carried out).
