MOT testing centres must abide by VOSA MOT retesting policies.

MOT re-testing rules are particularly difficult to understand and incredibly monotonous. Why don't we set the stage to help you as regards when you're able to and can't get yourself a FREE re-test.

Initially, the primary regulation would be that as soon as your car has failed its MOT, the crucial amount of time for the completion of any repair and any pursuing re-test is precisely 10 working days following on from the original day of test. This is true assuming that the family car is fixed and subsequently booked in for a re-test prior to the end of 10 trading days. If all of the above is true, subsequently the computerised MOTing device that all MOT test centres utilise would, at that point, allow us to register the car and carry out the re-test.

The second rule would be that during an MOT re-test it is more often than not the case that a couple of components are often tested again fairly quickly whilst on the contrary various points take more focused examination.

To illustrate;

  • Case in point the vehicle or light commercial van is rejected on 1 tyre; then a replacement tyre is to determine and a "fast track" MOT test can be accomplished, taking just a matter of minutes of the MOT testers energy and therefore wouldn't attract a re-test bill.
  • Or an alternate case in point: Let's assume your vehicle or light van failed the MOT check on headlamp aims, emissions, and brakes; in such a case the car should be enrolled with your neighbourhood Swindon VOSA MOT station for a part re-test and brought directly into MOT test bay, then an emissions check is required to be done, a light intense overall check undertaken together with a comprehensive braking system analysis undertaken. This work more often than not requires added amounts of the MOT testers time, and accordingly this would in general attract a re-test fee.

Accordingly whilst we, and almost every MOT station, advertises and offers FREE tests this is often, in general, influenced by when your family car is brought for its MOT examination in Swindon and subsequently what precisely your vehicle failed its MOT on.

IMPORTANT - if it turns out your family car fails the MOT test with us here in Swindon VOSA MOT test station and its then repaired by us, then it follows that we'll definitely facilitate ones retest FREE (i.e. 100 percent free), it is our thanks to you personally for making a choice to use our Swindon VOSA MOT testing station workshops.

If you require in depth explanation, then the following is a selection of the free retest points (if the vehicle failed the MOT over any one of these matters then a rapid retest may very well be carried out).
