MOT testing stations must obey VOSA MOT re-test procedures.

MOT re-test requirements are very challenging and intensely mundane. Permit us to set the landscape for you in relation to when you can actually and cannot get the FREE re-test.

Firstly, the primary rule is usually that as soon as your vehicle or light van has failed its MOT, the obligatory time period to have any necessary repair to be completed and any pursuing re-test is only 10 trading days following your initial day of test. This is correct provided that the vehicle or light commercial van has been fixed and after that booked in to acquire a re-test ahead of the end of 10 working days. If all of the above is correct, that is when the computerised MOT system all MOTing stations operate will certainly, at that point, let us to register the vehicle and perform the re-test.

The subsequent procedure may be that within the MOT re-examination it's often times a fact that several items may be tested again instantly nevertheless on the other hand various components will need significantly more measured examining.

As one example;

  • To illustrate your vehicle or light van falls short on 1 tyre; a replacement tyre is not hard to spot and then a "fast track" MOT test can be performed, this probably would take just a matter of minutes for the MOT tester to perform and hence would never attract a re-test bill.
  • Or an extra example of this: Let's suppose the vehicle or light van failed to pass its MOT examination on headlamp aims, emissions, and brake system; in this situation your vehicle or light van will need to be registered with your local Southport VOSA MOT testing garage to obtain a part re-test and taken in to the MOT testing bay, then an emissions examination has got to be undertaken, a lighter intensive over-all check done coupled with a comprehensive brake check executed. This work routinely requires further hours of the MOT testers time, and due to this fact this is going to typically attract a re-test cost.

As a consequence although we, and pretty much every MOT test station, markets and promotes FREE retests these are, on the whole, dependant on when the vehicle or light commercial van is presented for its MOT check in Southport and therefore exactly what the vehicle failed the MOT on.

NOTABLY - in the case the car failed to pass its MOT check with us here in Southport VOSA MOT test garage and it is afterwards fixed by us, then following that we'll generally accomplish any retest FREE (i.e. free of cost), this really is our thanks to you for making a choice to make full use of our Southport VOSA MOT test centre workshops.
