MOT test centres must abide by VOSA MOT retesting policies.

MOT re-testing protocols are considerably difficult to understand and really tedious. Let us set the scene for you in regards to when you're able to and will not get the FREE re-test.

To begin, the very initial regulation is that when a your car has failed its MOT test, the obligatory time frame for the completion of any repair and any resultant re-test is just 10 trading days following on from the primary day of test. This is correct providing your vehicle or light commercial van is repaired and subsequently registered to get a re-test prior to the end of 10 trading days. If all of the aforementioned is correct, in that case the computerised MOT programme that all MOT garages work with will likely, at this time, permit us to register the vehicle and do the re-test.

Consequently it therefore follows that the subsequent procedure is within the MOT test it's often true that a number of points can be re-tested easily whilst on the other hand some issues take significantly more focused testing.

By way of example;

  • If for example your car fails on 1 tyre; a new tyre is a breeze to identify and a "fast track" MOT retest can be accomplished, taking just a short while for the MOT tester to do and as a result is not going to attract a re-test bill.
  • Or an alternate example of this: Suppose the vehicle fails to pass its MOT test on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking systems; in such cases your vehicle or light commercial van is required to be enrolled with your nearest Cheltenham VOSA MOT centre for the part re-test and brought in to the MOT testing bay, once there the emissions analysis will need to be completed, a substantially less comprehensive over-all check out done coupled with a detailed braking system analysis executed. This work naturally requires additional quantities of the MOT testers time, and thus it'll usually attract a re-test expense.

And as a result despite the fact that we, and practically every MOT test station, markets and promises FREE retests it's really, mainly, influenced by when your family car is brought for its MOT test in Cheltenham and consequently exactly what your car failed its MOT upon.

IMPORTANT - if you find your vehicle failed get through its MOT test with us here in Cheltenham VOSA MOT garage and its at that point fixed by us, then it follows that we shall always accomplish ones retest FREE (i.e. 100 percent free), it is our thanks to you personally for opting to make use of our Cheltenham VOSA MOT testing garage workshops.
