MOT testing garages have to abide by VOSA MOT retesting requirements.

MOT re-testing protocols tend to be rather difficult to understand and really boring. Permit us to set the landscape to help you in relation to when you can actually and will not get yourself a FREE re-test.

In the first place, the first rule is always that after your family car has failed its MOT, the critical period of time for all the important repairs to be completed and any pursuing re-test is just 10 business days after your primary day of test. This is correct assuming that your family car is mended and following that scheduled in to have a re-test ahead of the end of 10 working days. If all of the aforementioned has been undertaken, consequently the computerised MOT program all MOT test stations utilize ought to, at this time, let us to register your car and do the re-test.

The 2nd rule tends to be that at the time of an MOT re-examination it's frequently true that several issues might be re-tested right away though alternatively a quantity of items ask for far more targeted checking out.

As an example;

  • Case in point the vehicle is rejected on 1 tyre; a replacement tyre is simple to see and then a "fast track" MOT retest can be done, consuming just a little while for the MOT tester to undertake and so won't attract a re-test cost.
  • Or still another example of this: What if the family car failed its MOT check on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking systems; normally your vehicle has got to be signed up with your local Harrogate VOSA MOT test garage for a partial re-test and taken directly into MOT testing bay, once there an emissions test should be performed, a substantially less rigorous general examination completed together with a complete brake assessment administered. This work quite often requires additional quantities of the MOT testers time, and therefore it's going to typically attract a re-test cost.

So although we, and pretty much every MOT test centre, markets and provides FREE retests this is, regularly, dependant on when the vehicle or light commercial van is delivered for its MOT examination in Harrogate and subsequently just what the car failed its MOT upon.

IMPORTANTLY - in the case the car failed to pass the MOT examination with us here in Harrogate VOSA MOT test centre and its thereafter mended by us, then following that we'll typically undertake ones retest FREE (i.e. at no cost to you), this really is our thanks to you personally for selecting to take advantage of our Harrogate VOSA MOT testing garage workshops.
