MOT test garages have to obey VOSA MOT retesting policies.

MOT re-testing requirements tend to be really complicated and tedious. We'll set the scene to help you as regards when it's possible to and will not acquire a FREE re-test.

First off, the initial rule is usually that once the family car has failed its MOT, the critical period of time for any requisite corrections to be undertaken and any resulting re-test is just 10 trading days after your initial MOT test date. This holds true providing that the vehicle or light commercial van has been repaired and thereafter booked in to get a re-test before the end of 10 working days. If all of the above has been undertaken, consequently the computerised MOT test process all MOT test garages utilize should, at this juncture, let us to register the family car and perform re-test.

The subsequent procedure would be that at the time of an MOT re-examination it is more often than not the case that certain issues may be tested again swiftly whereas in contrast selected items call for a good deal more measured checking out.

One example;

  • If for instance the family car fails on 1 tyre; a replaced tyre is not hard to recognize and then a "fast track" MOT retest can be accomplished, this is going to take just a matter of minutes of the MOT testers energy and therefore wouldn't attract a re-test cost.
  • Or an extra case in point: Say the vehicle or light commercial vehicle failed the MOT check on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking system; normally the family car should be signed up with your nearest Wallingford VOSA MOT centre to obtain a part re-test and taken in to the MOT test bay, and then an emissions evaluation needs to be done, a not so concentrated all around check done as well as an entire braking system test completed. This work normally takes extra hours of the MOT testers time, and that is why this could generally attract a re-test fee.

For that reason although we, and just about every MOT test garage, advertises and offers FREE retests this will be, in general, influenced by when the vehicle is brought for its MOT check in Wallingford and accordingly specifically what your vehicle failed its MOT on.

IMPORTANT - in the case the vehicle failed it's MOT examination with us here at Wallingford VOSA MOT testing garage and is later fixed by us, then in that case, we'll generally conduct the retest FREE (i.e. totally free), it is our thanks to you for opting to use our Wallingford VOSA MOT garage workshops.

If you need extra clarification, then listed here is a listing of the 100 percent free retest items (if your vehicle or light commercial van failed its MOT upon one of these matters then a fast retest could be executed).
