MOT test garages are required to normally obey VOSA MOT retesting procedures.

MOT re-test rules tend to be extremely perplex and intensely dull. We'll set the stage to help you in regards to when you can and will not acquire a FREE re-test.

For starters, the very primary regulation tends to be that as soon as your car has failed its MOT test, the applicable time frame for the completion of any repair and any following re-test is just 10 business days subsequent to the primary test date. This is true providing that the car has been repaired and after that booked in for a re-test before the end of 10 working days. If all of the above has been carried out, then the computerised MOT program all MOT test garages work with will likely, at this juncture, make it possible for us to register the vehicle or light commercial vehicle and do the re-test.

The secondary procedure may be that during an MOT re-test it's often times true that a number of elements might be re-tested promptly though on the flip side various components should have considerably more specialised checking.

To illustrate;

  • To illustrate your car is rejected on 1 tyre; a changed tyre is to spot and a "fast track" MOT retest is feasible, taking only a short while of the MOT testers time and therefore definitely would not attract a re-test expense.
  • Or a second scenario: Let's suppose your vehicle or light van failed get through the MOT check on headlamp aims, emissions, and brakes; in this situation your vehicle really needs to be registered with your local Chard VOSA MOT station to get a part re-test and driven in to the MOT testing bay, and then the emissions evaluation needs to be performed, a lighter concentrated general check performed in addition to an extensive brake test performed. This work mostly will take further quantities of the MOT testers time, and that is why this will more often than not attract a re-test expense.

And as a result despite the fact that we, and just about every MOT garage, promotes and offers FREE retests this could be, quite often, dependant upon when the vehicle or light commercial van is brought for its MOT test in Chard and subsequently what specifically the car failed its MOT upon.

IMPORTANTLY - in cases where your family car failed it's MOT check with us here at Chard VOSA MOT centre and its then fixed by us, then following that we will invariably execute your retest FREE (i.e. 100% free), and that is our thanks to you for making a choice to utilise our Chard VOSA MOT test centre workshops.
