MOT test garages are required to generally obey VOSA MOT retesting regulations.

MOT re-test rules tend to be fairly intricate and extremely difficult. We'll set the scene to help you as to when you're able to and can't get yourself a FREE re-test.

To begin, the initial rule is that when a the vehicle has failed to get through its MOT test, the required length of time for the vital adjustments to be conducted and any subsequent re-test is absolutely 10 business days after your first test date. This applies providing that the vehicle or light van is repaired and then registered to acquire a re-test prior to the end of 10 working days. If all of the above has been achieved, subsequently the computerised MOTing device all MOT stations employ would, at this juncture, enable us to register your vehicle and do the re-test.

Thereafter it therefore follows that the second rule is at the time of an MOT re-examination it is regularly the case that selected points may be re-tested instantly whilst on the flip side several issues will need far more measured testing.

Here is an example;

  • For instance your vehicle is rejected on 1 tyre; then a new tyre is not hard to see and a "fast track" MOT test may be done, this would take only a minute or 2 for the MOT tester to complete and thus shouldn't attract a re-test bill.
  • Or an alternate example: Imagine if your vehicle fails the MOT check on headlamp aims, emissions, and brake system; in cases like this the vehicle or light van will have to be signed up with your nearest Long Eaton VOSA MOT testing centre to secure a part re-test and driven directly into MOT test bay, and then the emissions check absolutely must be done, a far less intense over-all check executed and also a complete braking mechanism check carried out. This work usually requires additional hours of the MOT testers time, and for this reason this certainly will usually attract a re-test expense.

That being said although we, and each and every MOT test station, promotes and provides FREE retests these are, generally speaking, based upon when the vehicle or light commercial vehicle is presented for its MOT exam in Long Eaton and subsequently precisely what your car failed its MOT on.

IMPORTANT - in cases where the car failed to pass it's MOT check with us here within Long Eaton VOSA MOT test garage and its afterwards repaired by us, then it follows that we shall generally do any retest FREE (i.e. at no cost to you), it is our thanks to you for preferring to turn to our Long Eaton VOSA MOT centre workshops.

If you're after further explanation, then right here is range of the 100 percent free retest points (if your car failed its MOT upon some of these particulars then a rapid retest could very well be completed).
