MOT testing stations have got to abide by VOSA MOT retesting protocols.

MOT re-test regulations tend to be somewhat confusing and also very dull. Allow us to set the landscape for you in relation to when you're able to and cannot acquire a FREE re-test.

To begin with, the primary regulation is that after the vehicle has failed its MOT test, the applicable period of time for all imperative corrections to be completed and any following re-test is precisely 10 business days following the first MOT test date. This is correct on condition that your vehicle or light van has been repaired and subsequently booked in to have a re-test prior to the end of 10 working days. If all of the aforementioned is the case, that is when the computerised MOT program all MOT test stations operate will certainly, at this stage, allow us to register your family car and perform the re-test.

So, it so follows that the subsequent rule tends to be that at the time of an MOT re-examination it is all too often a fact that a number of items might be tested again very fast although on the other hand specific issues might need a good deal more focused assessment.

One example;

  • If for instance your car falls short on 1 tyre; a new tyre is straightforward to find and then a "fast track" MOT retest can be performed, consuming only a short while for the MOT tester to deal with and thus won't attract a re-test expense.
  • Or an additional illustration: Say the vehicle or light van failed get through the MOT examination on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking system; in cases like this your vehicle or light commercial van will need to be signed up with your nearest Gatwick VOSA MOT station for the part re-test and driven directly into MOT testing bay, once there an emissions analysis would have to be done, a lighter exhaustive all round check out undertaken and an entire brake analysis administered. This work generally will take extra amounts of the MOT testers time, and due to this fact this could often attract a re-test charge.

Accordingly while we, and each individual MOT test garage, advertises and promises FREE tests this could be, in most cases, influenced by when the car is brought for its MOT exam in Gatwick and subsequently specifically what the vehicle failed the MOT on.

NOTABLY - if, perhaps the family car failed to pass it's MOT check with us here at Gatwick VOSA MOT station and is then repaired by us, then in that case, we are able to typically carry out any retest FREE (i.e. at no cost to you), this is our thanks to you personally for choosing to make full use of our Gatwick VOSA MOT testing garage workshops.

If you desire in depth clarification, then below is a range of the free of cost retest items (if the family car failed the MOT regarding some of these components then a quick retest could very well be completed).
