MOT testing stations should generally obey VOSA MOT retesting regulations.

MOT re-testing requirements tend to be comparatively confusing and really monotonous. Permit us to set the stage to help you as to when it's possible to and cannot have a FREE re-test.

Initially, the first regulation tends to be that after your car has failed its MOT, the applicable time period for all requisite repairs to be made and any subsequent re-test is absolutely 10 trading days subsequent to the initial day of test. This is true so long as the vehicle is remedied and successively booked in to have a re-test prior to the end of 10 trading days. If all of the above has been completed, in that case the computerised MOT system all MOT stations depend on will certainly, at this point, permit us to register your family car and carry out the re-test.

The second rule is the fact that during an MOT re-examination it's typically a fact that a couple of points can be re-tested promptly although conversely several issues warrant much more focused evaluation.

As an illustration;

  • For instance your vehicle fails on 1 tyre; then a new tyre is not difficult to distinguish and a "fast track" MOT retest can be done, consuming only a short while for the MOT tester to accomplish and for that reason would not attract a re-test expense.
  • Or a further case in point: Suppose the vehicle fails the MOT examination on headlamp aims, emissions, and brakes; in such a case your vehicle is required to be enrolled with your neighbourhood Belle Vale VOSA MOT test garage to acquire a part re-test and brought in to the MOT test bay, once there an emissions assessment will have to be done, a substantially less exhaustive overall check undertaken along with an extensive brake test conducted. This work more often than not takes additional quantities of the MOT testers time, and because of this this will typically attract a re-test fee.

And so whilst we, and each individual MOT test centre, advertises and promotes FREE tests this will be, quite often, based upon when the vehicle is brought for its MOT examination in Belle Vale and ultimately precisely what your vehicle failed its MOT on.

NOTABLY - if perhaps the vehicle fails the MOT examination with us here in Belle Vale VOSA MOT garage and its afterwards fixed by us, then following that we can almost always conduct your retest FREE (i.e. at no cost to you), this is our thanks to you personally for making a choice to go with our Belle Vale VOSA MOT testing station workshops.

If you're after extra explanation, then listed here is a selection of the costless retest items (if the vehicle or light commercial van failed the MOT over one of these items then a fast track retest could very well be performed).
