MOT test centres must obey VOSA MOT retesting protocols.

MOT re-test regulations are particularly challenging and really difficult. Let us set the stage for you in relation to when you are able and cannot get the FREE re-test.

For instance, the primary rule would be that after the vehicle has failed its MOT test, the obligatory amount of time for the completion of any repair and any resultant re-test is absolutely 10 business days after the first day of test. This is true providing that the family car has been fixed and accordingly booked in to have a re-test prior to the end of 10 working days. If all of the aforementioned is the case, that is when the computerised MOT program all MOT stations depend on should certainly, at this juncture, enable us to register your car and perform re-test.

The second rule is always that during an MOT re-examination it is more often than not the case that a number of points might be re-tested very quickly whereas on the other hand certain components ask for considerably more focused checking.

Such as;

  • If for example the family car fails on 1 tyre; a replaced tyre is not difficult to see and then a "fast track" MOT test can be carried out, this normally would take just a little while for the MOT tester to do and as a result definitely would not attract a re-test charge.
  • Or still another case in point: Let's suppose the family car fails get through the MOT test on headlamp aims, emissions, and brake system; in this instance your family car really needs to be registered with your neighbourhood Paddock Wood VOSA MOT centre to acquire a partial re-test and driven into the MOT test bay, and then an emissions analysis ought to be performed, a far less intensive over-all check done and then a full-blown braking system assessment carried out. This work ordinarily will take further amounts of the MOT testers time, and which means that this could as a rule attract a re-test fee.

For this reason despite the fact that we, and virtually every MOT test garage, promotes and offers FREE retests it will be, by and large, dependant upon when the family car is supplied for its MOT test in Paddock Wood and subsequently what specifically your car failed its MOT on.

SIGNIFICANTLY - in the case your car failed it's MOT test with us here in Paddock Wood VOSA MOT testing centre and is thereafter mended by us, then in that case, we'll almost always complete any retest FREE (i.e. at no cost to you), this is certainly our thanks to you personally for deciding to make full use of our Paddock Wood VOSA MOT station workshops.

If you would like more explanation, then the following is a selection of the gratis retest points (if your vehicle failed its MOT on these types of areas then a short retest may very well be completed).
