MOT testing garages should normally obey VOSA MOT retest procedures.

MOT re-testing rules tend to be rather perplexing and very tedious. We'll set the landscape to help you in relation to when you might and will not obtain a FREE re-test.

Firstly, the initial regulation is always that as soon as your vehicle or light van has failed its MOT, the critical period for the completion of any repair and any resulting re-test is precisely 10 business days after your first day of test. This applies assuming that the family car is repaired and accordingly registered to get a re-test prior to the end of 10 working days. If all of the above has been carried out, subsequently the computerised MOT device all MOT test garages employ will definitely, at this juncture, make it possible for us to register your family car and carry out the re-test.

The second rule is the fact that at the time of an MOT re-examination it's sometimes a fact that a few components can be re-tested swiftly nonetheless on the other hand certain components should have far more targeted checking.

Here is an example;

  • Case in point your car is rejected on 1 tyre; a changed tyre is straightforward to identify and then a "fast track" MOT test can be accomplished, taking only a short while of the MOT testers valuable time and accordingly is not going to attract a re-test cost.
  • Or a second example: Let's assume your family car fails to pass its MOT test on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking systems; normally the vehicle has got to be enrolled with your local Catford VOSA MOT test centre for the part re-test and brought into the MOT testing bay, once there an emissions test will be performed, a light comprehensive overall examination performed and also an extensive braking system check conducted. This work ordinarily will take increased quantities of the MOT testers time, and accordingly it is going to often attract a re-test expense.

That being said although we, and virtually every MOT test station, advertises and provides FREE retests this is definitely, mainly, dependant upon when your car is supplied for its MOT assessment in Catford and consequently precisely what the vehicle or light commercial vehicle failed the MOT upon.

SIGNIFICANTLY - if it turns out the family car failed get through its MOT test with us here within Catford VOSA MOT garage and is later repaired by us, then it follows that we can invariably accomplish the retest FREE (i.e. totally free), this really is our thanks to you for making a choice to try our Catford VOSA MOT testing centre workshops.
