MOT test centres should never fail to observe VOSA MOT retest rules.

MOT re-testing protocols tend to be relatively complicated and also dull. Let's set the scene to help you in regards to when you can actually and can't get a FREE re-test.

To begin with, the very first regulation would be that once the family car has failed its MOT, the crucial period of time for the completion of any repair and any pursuing re-test is only 10 working days subsequent to the primary MOT test date. This holds true on condition that your car is remedied and after that registered to acquire a re-test prior to the end of 10 trading days. If all of the aforementioned has been achieved, that is when the computerised MOTing program all MOT stations employ will likely, at this time, permit us to register your family car and carry out the re-test.

So, it so ensues that the 2nd rule is always that in the course of an MOT re-examination it is frequently true that a number of elements are often tested again swiftly though on the flip side many issues really need considerably more specialised testing.

Such as;

  • To illustrate the vehicle or light commercial vehicle falls short on 1 tyre; a new tyre is easy to identify and then a "fast track" MOT retest is feasible, taking only a couple of minutes of the MOT testers valuable time and for this reason should not attract a re-test cost.
  • Or still another scenario: What if your vehicle failed the MOT check on headlamp aims, emissions, and brakes; in such a case the vehicle or light van is required to be registered with your local East Kilbride VOSA MOT testing garage for the partial re-test and driven into the MOT test bay, and then an emissions assessment will need to be done, a light rigorous overall check out undertaken in addition to a full braking system test conducted. This work in general will take additional amounts of the MOT testers time, and due to this fact this will in general attract a re-test cost.

And so although we, and each individual MOT test station, promotes and boasts FREE tests this is often, typically, based on when your car is delivered for its MOT exam in East Kilbride and at that point what specifically the vehicle failed its MOT on.

IMPORTANTLY - if it turns out your car fails its MOT check with us here within East Kilbride VOSA MOT garage and is afterwards mended by us, then it follows that we can invariably facilitate ones retest FREE (i.e. completely free), that's our thanks to you for opting to turn to our East Kilbride VOSA MOT testing centre workshops.

If you're after in depth clarification, then the following is a range of the no cost retest points (if the vehicle failed the MOT relating to one of these problems then a prompt retest can be carried out).
