MOT test stations have to obey VOSA MOT retesting rules.

MOT re-test rules tend to be comparatively intricate and also very mundane. Allow us to set the scene for you in relation to when you can and will not acquire a FREE re-test.

In the first place, the primary regulation is that once your vehicle has failed its MOT, the crucial period of time for the completion of any repair and any subsequent re-test is precisely 10 working days after the first test date. This is true providing that your car has been remedied and thereafter registered to have a re-test ahead of the end of 10 working days. If all of the above has been carried out, that is when the computerised MOT system that all MOT test centres utilise ought to, at that point, make it possible for us to register your vehicle or light van and carry out the re-test.

Following that it therefore follows that the 2nd rule is often that within the MOT re-examination it is frequently the case that just a few components may be re-tested promptly although in contrast various points demand considerably more measured checking out.

As an illustration;

  • To illustrate the family car is rejected on 1 tyre; then a new tyre is not hard to recognize and then a "fast track" MOT test can be performed, this is likely to take just a little while for the MOT tester to do and for this reason would not attract a re-test cost.
  • Or yet another instance: Let's assume your car failed the MOT check on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking system; in such cases your vehicle really needs to be registered with your nearest Great Harwood VOSA MOT testing garage to obtain a part re-test and driven into the MOT test bay, once there the emissions test should be undertaken, a light involved general examination done and then a detailed braking mechanism assessment undertaken. This work generally takes additional amounts of the MOT testers time, and accordingly this will likely more often than not attract a re-test charge.

That being said while we, and pretty much every MOT garage, advertises and promotes FREE tests that may be, routinely, determined by when the vehicle is supplied for its MOT test in Great Harwood and subsequently just what exactly your vehicle or light commercial van failed the MOT upon.

NOTABLY - in the event the vehicle or light commercial vehicle failed to pass it's MOT test with us here at Great Harwood VOSA MOT test centre and it is then repaired by us, then following that we are able to definitely do ones retest FREE (i.e. at no cost to you), this really is our thanks to you personally for making a choice to make use of our Great Harwood VOSA MOT test garage workshops.

If you need added explanation, then this is a selection of the totally free retest points (if your car failed the MOT regarding these problems then a short retest may very well be conducted).
