MOT testing centres need to comply with VOSA MOT re-test rules.

MOT re-testing requirements tend to be quite perplex and really uninteresting. Let's set the scene to help you as regards when you might and will not get a FREE re-test.

In the first place, the first rule tends to be that once the car has failed to get through its MOT, the recommended time period for your vital repair works to be finished and any following re-test is exactly 10 trading days following the primary day of test. This applies on condition that the family car is mended and after that scheduled in to have a re-test ahead of the end of 10 business days. If all of the aforementioned has been carried out, then the computerised MOT test programme all MOT garages have will definitely, at this stage, enable us to register the car and perform re-test.

Following that it therefore follows that the second rule tends to be that during an MOT test it is nearly always true that some elements could be tested again very quickly whilst in contrast a quantity of points really need far more calculated checking out.

As an illustration;

  • If for instance your car fails on 1 tyre; a new tyre is to recognize and a "fast track" MOT test is feasible, taking only a little while of the MOT testers energy and and so would never attract a re-test fee.
  • Or an additional illustration: If your vehicle or light commercial van fails the MOT test on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking systems; in cases like this the car ought to signed up with your nearest Barnsley VOSA MOT test garage for the partial re-test and driven to the MOT test bay, then an emissions test has got to be executed, a lighter rigorous over-all examination performed plus an extensive brake test carried out. This work typically will take extra hours of the MOT testers time, and due to this fact this is going to normally attract a re-test cost.

And as a result despite the fact that we, and virtually every MOT test garage, promotes and promotes FREE tests this can be, more often than not, based on when your car is provided for its MOT assessment in Barnsley and then just what exactly your car failed the MOT upon.

NOTABLY - if, perhaps the family car failed to pass the MOT test with us here in Barnsley VOSA MOT test station and its at that point mended by us, then in this case we shall definitely undertake any retest FREE (i.e. free of charge), that is our thanks to you for choosing to take advantage of our Barnsley VOSA MOT centre workshops.
