MOT test garages must abide by VOSA MOT retesting rules.

MOT re-test protocols are relatively baffling and intensely boring. Why don't we set the landscape for you in regards to when you can actually and will not have a FREE re-test.

For starters, the first regulation is the fact that once the family car has failed to pass its MOT, the applicable time period for all important repairs to be finished and any pursuing re-test is just 10 business days subsequent to the original day of test. This is correct so long as the family car is repaired and then registered to have a re-test ahead of the end of 10 working days. If all of the above has been carried out, consequently the computerised MOT test device that all MOT test centres utilise should, at that point, allow us to register the vehicle or light commercial van and perform the re-test.

The subsequent rule is the fact that within the MOT re-examination it is commonly a fact that a small number of components might be tested again promptly nonetheless in contrast many items demand more focused testing.

One example;

  • Case in point your family car falls short on 1 tyre; a new tyre is not difficult to recognize and a "fast track" MOT test can be done, this normally would take only a jiffy of the MOT testers energy and therefore would never attract a re-test fee.
  • Or one more case study: What if the vehicle failed get through its MOT test on headlamp aims, emissions, and brakes; in this instance the car should be enrolled with your local Harrogate VOSA MOT station to secure a partial re-test and driven into the MOT test bay, then an emissions check ought to be carried out, a far less intense general examination performed in addition to a full-blown braking system test undertaken. This work normally will take extra amounts of the MOT testers time, and this is why this will certainly usually attract a re-test bill.

And as a result whilst we, and nearly every MOT test station, markets and promises FREE tests this may be, commonly, dependant on when the vehicle is supplied for its MOT test in Harrogate and consequently just what exactly the family car failed its MOT upon.

IMPORTANTLY - if you find the vehicle or light commercial vehicle fails it's MOT check with us here at Harrogate VOSA MOT test garage and is later mended by us, then in that case, we will definitely conduct a retest FREE (i.e. absolutely free), that's our thanks to you for deciding to use our Harrogate VOSA MOT station workshops.
