MOT test stations should comply with VOSA MOT retesting procedures.

MOT re-testing procedures tend to be fairly perplexing and mundane. Permit us to set the stage for you as regards when you can and cannot receive a FREE re-test.

In the first place, the primary regulation would be that when a the vehicle has failed its MOT, the requisite time period for the completion of any repair and any following re-test is precisely 10 business days following on from the initial test date. This holds true as long as the vehicle or light commercial van is fixed and accordingly registered to obtain a re-test prior to the end of 10 trading days. If all of the aforementioned is true, in that case the computerised MOT programme that all MOT test garages depend on will certainly, at that point, let us to register the car and perform the re-test.

The secondary procedure is always that within the MOT re-examination it's often times the case that some points may be re-tested immediately but in contrast other elements should have much more focused examining.

Here is an example;

  • If for instance your vehicle or light commercial vehicle falls short on 1 tyre; a replaced tyre will be easy to spot and a "fast track" MOT retest can be performed, consuming only a minute or 2 of the MOT testers valuable time and so would never attract a re-test fee.
  • Or yet another case in point: Suppose your vehicle failed the MOT check on headlamp aims, emissions, and brake system; here the family car needs to be signed up with your local Hartlepool VOSA MOT testing station for the part re-test and taken directly into MOT test bay, then an emissions test must be accomplished, a far less exhaustive overall examination executed plus an extensive brake test undertaken. This work typically will take added quantities of the MOT testers time, and because of this it is going to normally attract a re-test cost.

Accordingly despite the fact that we, and virtually every MOT test garage, promotes and promises FREE tests it will be, typically, determined by when the car is provided for its MOT exam in Hartlepool and therefore what specifically your vehicle failed its MOT on.

IMPORTANTLY - in cases where your car fails it's MOT examination with us here in Hartlepool VOSA MOT centre and is at that point fixed by us, then following that we shall definitely complete a retest FREE (i.e. free), that is our thanks to you for deciding to turn to our Hartlepool VOSA MOT centre workshops.

If you're after further clarification, then right here is list of the costless retest points (if the vehicle failed its MOT upon any of these factors then a quick retest could very well be undertaken).
