MOT test stations need to stick to VOSA MOT re-test policies.

MOT re-testing procedures tend to be very intricate and very monotonous. We want to set the stage to help you as to when you can actually and will not get yourself a FREE re-test.

Initially, the initial rule tends to be that once the family car has failed to get through its MOT test, the mandatory time-frame for all the desired fixing to be made and any resultant re-test is exactly 10 trading days following on from the primary MOT test date. This holds true provided that your vehicle or light commercial vehicle has been mended and after that scheduled in to have a re-test before the end of 10 trading days. If all of the aforementioned is the case, then the computerised MOT test programme that all MOT test garages use is designed to, at this stage, make it possible for us to register the family car and perform re-test.

So, it subsequently ensues that the second rule is that in the course of an MOT re-test it is sometimes a fact that a number of components are often tested again easily nonetheless alternatively many elements necessitate far more calculated assessment.

For instance;

  • If for instance the family car is rejected on 1 tyre; then a changed tyre is not difficult to distinguish and a "fast track" MOT test can be carried out, consuming only a little while of the MOT testers valuable time and and so would never attract a re-test expense.
  • Or an alternate illustration: Imagine if the family car fails its MOT test on headlamp aims, emissions, and brake system; in this case the vehicle or light commercial vehicle is required to be enrolled with your neighbourhood Wembley VOSA MOT testing garage to acquire a partial re-test and driven to the MOT test bay, once there an emissions check should be done, a lighter involved overall check completed and a full-blown braking mechanism check undertaken. This work usually will take additional hours of the MOT testers time, and due to this fact this will likely customarily attract a re-test cost.

For this reason while we, and just about every MOT station, advertises and offers FREE tests it's, nearly always, dependant upon when the vehicle is made available for its MOT test in Wembley and subsequently what precisely the vehicle or light commercial vehicle failed its MOT on.

IMPORTANT - if it turns out the family car fails get through its MOT test with us here at Wembley VOSA MOT centre and is then fixed by us, then in this case we will typically accomplish a retest FREE (i.e. at zero cost to you), and that is our thanks to you personally for making a choice to try our Wembley VOSA MOT garage workshops.

If you would like greater clarification, then this is a number of the totally free retest points (if your vehicle failed the MOT relating to one of these factors then a fast retest could be performed).
