MOT test centres should always observe VOSA MOT retest requirements.

MOT re-testing protocols are particularly bewildering and also dull. Allow us to set the stage to help you in regards to when it's possible to and can't get a FREE re-test.

To start with, the primary regulation is usually that after your vehicle has failed its MOT, the mandatory period of time for the completion of any repair and any resultant re-test is exactly 10 trading days following the primary test date. This is true as long as the vehicle is repaired and successively booked in to acquire a re-test prior to the end of 10 working days. If all of the above has been carried out, subsequently the computerised MOT program all MOT garages operate will definitely, at this stage, enable us to register your vehicle and perform re-test.

So, it therefore follows that the subsequent procedure is usually that at the time of an MOT test it's repeatedly true that various elements can be tested again promptly though on the other hand various components take more deliberated testing.

An example;

  • If for example the vehicle or light van falls short on 1 tyre; a changed tyre will be easy to find and a "fast track" MOT test can be done, consuming just a matter of minutes of the MOT testers energy and for this reason wouldn't attract a re-test expense.
  • Or yet another case study: Let's suppose the family car failed its MOT examination on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking system; in this instance your vehicle or light commercial vehicle has to be signed up with your nearest Starbeck VOSA MOT test centre to get a partial re-test and brought directly into MOT testing bay, and then an emissions analysis would have to be done, a far less comprehensive all round examination undertaken and then an extensive braking system assessment conducted. This work frequently takes added hours of the MOT testers time, and and so this will certainly more often than not attract a re-test bill.

For that reason whilst we, and nearly every MOT test garage, advertises and promotes FREE tests this is actually, usually, based on when the family car is brought for its MOT examination in Starbeck and ultimately precisely what your vehicle failed the MOT upon.

NOTABLY - in the event that your vehicle or light van fails the MOT examination with us here at Starbeck VOSA MOT testing garage and is afterwards fixed by us, then following that we shall invariably execute the retest FREE (i.e. totally free), this is certainly our thanks to you for preferring to utilise our Starbeck VOSA MOT station workshops.

If you desire any further clarification, then what follows is a selection of the totally free retest points (if your vehicle or light van failed its MOT upon one of these details then a quick retest can be performed).
