MOT test centres must stick to VOSA MOT retesting protocols.

MOT re-testing procedures tend to be quite confusing and tedious. We'll set the scenario for you as regards when you can and can't obtain a FREE re-test.

To begin, the first rule would be that once your vehicle or light commercial vehicle has failed to pass its MOT test, the obligatory time frame for the completion of any repair and any following re-test is just 10 business days after the initial test date. This is valid as long as the car has been repaired and following that registered to obtain a re-test before the end of 10 business days. If all of the above has been undertaken, in that case the computerised MOT programme all MOT test garages utilize should, at this juncture, make it possible for us to register your car and do the re-test.

So, it subsequently follows that the subsequent procedure would be the fact at the time of an MOT test it's sometimes a fact that some issues may be tested again almost immediately though on the flip side specific elements will need far more focused analysis.

Here is an example;

  • Case in point your vehicle fails on 1 tyre; then a replaced tyre is to find and then a "fast track" MOT retest can be done, taking only a minute or 2 for the MOT tester to take care of and for that reason would not attract a re-test expense.
  • Or one more illustration: Let's suppose your car fails the MOT examination on headlamp aims, emissions, and brake system; in such a case your vehicle or light van really needs to be enrolled with your neighbourhood Beeston VOSA MOT station for a part re-test and driven directly into MOT testing bay, and then the emissions check will be executed, a less intense overall check out accomplished including a full-blown braking system check done. This work in general will take increased quantities of the MOT testers time, and as a result this will certainly generally attract a re-test bill.

And so even though we, and virtually every MOT centre, advertises and promises FREE tests this could be, commonly, based on when the vehicle or light van is presented for its MOT check in Beeston and therefore exactly what the family car failed the MOT upon.

NOTABLY - in the case your vehicle failed it's MOT test with us here at Beeston VOSA MOT test centre and its subsequently fixed by us, then in this case we will typically execute your retest FREE (i.e. at zero cost to you), that's our thanks to you for opting to utilise our Beeston VOSA MOT testing station workshops.

If you would like more explanation, then right here is listing of the 100 % free retest items (if the family car failed the MOT over these kinds of components then a prompt retest may very well be undertaken).
