MOT testing stations have got to abide by VOSA MOT retesting rules.

MOT re-testing requirements are rather perplexing and incredibly unexciting. Permit us to set the stage for you as to when you can actually and will not receive a FREE re-test.

Initially, the very first rule is usually that when a your family car has failed its MOT, the necessary period of time for the completion of any repair and any subsequent re-test is exactly 10 working days following on from the first test date. This is correct as long as the vehicle or light van is fixed and after that registered for a re-test ahead of the end of 10 trading days. If all of the above is the case, subsequently the computerised MOTing program all MOT centres depend on is able to, at that point, enable us to register the car and perform re-test.

So, it accordingly ensues that the 2nd procedure may be that during an MOT re-examination it's often times a fact that a handful of elements could be re-tested almost immediately whereas in contrast several points take considerably more measured testing.

By way of example;

  • If for instance your car is rejected on 1 tyre; then a new tyre is not difficult to spot and then a "fast track" MOT test may be done, this is going to take only a matter of minutes of the MOT testers time and accordingly wouldn't attract a re-test charge.
  • Or still another illustration: Let's imagine the vehicle or light van fails its MOT test on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking system; in such cases your vehicle has to be signed up with your nearest Harrogate VOSA MOT testing station to secure a part re-test and taken into the MOT test bay, then an emissions examination ought to be undertaken, a lighter comprehensive all round check performed including a complete braking mechanism analysis executed. This work generally requires extra quantities of the MOT testers time, and this is why this will certainly normally attract a re-test charge.

And as a result whilst we, and almost every MOT test station, markets and provides FREE retests these are, normally, dependant upon when your car is presented for its MOT examination in Harrogate and ultimately what specifically the vehicle failed the MOT upon.

NOTABLY - in cases where the vehicle or light van fails its MOT examination with us here at Harrogate VOSA MOT testing centre and is thereafter mended by us, then it follows that we are able to definitely facilitate a retest FREE (i.e. at zero cost to you), that's our thanks to you personally for preferring to take advantage of our Harrogate VOSA MOT station workshops.
