MOT testing stations must observe VOSA MOT retest procedures.

MOT re-testing regulations tend to be moderately complicated and also challenging. We'll set the landscape for you as regards when you might and will not acquire a FREE re-test.

Firstly, the first rule is that as soon as your vehicle or light van has failed its MOT, the requisite time for all the critical adjustments to be conducted and any resultant re-test is only 10 business days after your original day of test. This applies on condition that the family car has been mended and accordingly scheduled in for a re-test before the end of 10 business days. If all of the above has been achieved, subsequently the computerised MOT test process all MOT stations operate is able to, at this juncture, enable us to register the family car and perform the re-test.

The secondary procedure would be that during an MOT re-examination it's nearly always the case that selected items can be tested again speedily whilst conversely a quantity of components mandate considerably more measured checking.

To provide an example;

  • If for example the family car falls short on 1 tyre; then a new tyre is simple to distinguish and a "fast track" MOT retest can be carried out, taking just a short while for the MOT tester to execute and for this reason definitely would not attract a re-test bill.
  • Or a second instance: Let's suppose your vehicle or light commercial van fails to pass its MOT examination on headlamp aims, emissions, and brake system; in such a case your family car must be scheduled with your neighbourhood Taunton VOSA MOT test garage for the partial re-test and driven in to the MOT testing bay, and then the emissions assessment ought to be executed, a far less comprehensive all around check completed coupled with a full braking system check completed. This work mostly requires extra hours of the MOT testers time, and and so this certainly will normally attract a re-test cost.

And as a result whilst we, and each individual MOT test centre, markets and offers FREE tests it's, in many instances, dependant on when the car is delivered for its MOT test in Taunton and then specifically what your vehicle or light van failed its MOT upon.

SIGNIFICANTLY - if perhaps your vehicle fails the MOT check with us here at Taunton VOSA MOT station and is at that point mended by us, then in that case, we will almost always carry out any retest FREE (i.e. completely free), this is our thanks to you for selecting to turn to our Taunton VOSA MOT test centre workshops.

If you're after more clarification, then listed here is a listing of the 100 % free retest points (if your family car failed the MOT over these types of matters then a fast track retest could very well be conducted).
