MOT test garages are required to generally abide by VOSA MOT retesting regulations.

MOT re-testing protocols tend to be very complicated and intensely unexciting. Let us set the landscape for you in regards to when you can and can't get the FREE re-test.

Initially, the first rule is that when a your car has failed its MOT, the critical period of time for the completion of any repair and any resulting re-test is only 10 trading days following on from the original test date. This is correct so long as the vehicle or light van is mended and successively registered to acquire a re-test prior to the end of 10 working days. If all of the aforementioned has been completed, subsequently the computerised MOT test device that all MOT stations make use of is able to, at this time, permit us to register the vehicle and perform the re-test.

So, it subsequently follows that the second procedure may be that in the course of an MOT test it is more often than not true that just a few components are often re-tested very quickly whilst in contrast certain components call for much more calculated examining.

To illustrate;

  • If for instance the family car fails on 1 tyre; a replacement tyre will be easy to spot and a "fast track" MOT test may be done, this should take just a short while for the MOT tester to execute and so wouldn't attract a re-test charge.
  • Or yet another case in point: Let's say your car fails its MOT test on headlamp aims, emissions, and brake system; in this case your vehicle ought to signed up with your local Harrogate VOSA MOT station to secure a partial re-test and driven into the MOT testing bay, once there the emissions check ought to be executed, a significantly less involved over-all examination executed and an entire braking mechanism check undertaken. This work usually will take further hours of the MOT testers time, and subsequently this could generally attract a re-test bill.

And so while we, and virtually every MOT test centre, markets and promotes FREE retests this will be, in many instances, dependant upon when the family car is presented for its MOT examination in Harrogate and following that what exactly your car failed its MOT upon.

IMPORTANT - in case the car failed its MOT check with us here at Harrogate VOSA MOT testing garage and its subsequently mended by us, then following that we will invariably facilitate the retest FREE (i.e. at no cost to you), and that is our thanks to you personally for deciding to try our Harrogate VOSA MOT test station workshops.
