MOT testing stations should definitely abide by VOSA MOT retesting procedures.

MOT re-test procedures are quite complicated and also unexciting. We want to set the scene to help you as regards when you are able and can't get the FREE re-test.

To begin, the very initial rule is the fact that as soon as your vehicle or light van has failed its MOT, the crucial time-frame for the desired corrections to be implemented and any resultant re-test is only 10 trading days following the first day of test. This is valid providing the car is mended and subsequently scheduled in to obtain a re-test before the end of 10 business days. If all of the above has been achieved, in that case the computerised MOT test system all MOT garages have will likely, at that time, permit us to register the family car and perform re-test.

The subsequent procedure would be the fact during an MOT test it's frequently a fact that a couple of items can be re-tested almost instantly whereas on the other hand selected issues take much more measured evaluation.

To give an example;

  • If for example your vehicle or light van fails on 1 tyre; a changed tyre is simple to distinguish and then a "fast track" MOT test can be performed, consuming only a little while of the MOT testers valuable time and thus won't attract a re-test expense.
  • Or another scenario: Let's suppose the car failed get through its MOT test on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking system; in such a case your family car will have to be signed up with your local Harrogate VOSA MOT station for the partial re-test and taken to the MOT test bay, then the emissions check will be accomplished, a significantly less involved all round examination completed plus an extensive braking mechanism test administered. This work customarily will take additional amounts of the MOT testers time, and that's why this could usually attract a re-test expense.

For this reason while we, and practically every MOTing station, promotes and promotes FREE tests it will be, in general, dependant upon when your vehicle or light commercial vehicle is supplied for its MOT assessment in Harrogate and at that point exactly what your vehicle or light commercial vehicle failed its MOT on.

IMPORTANT - in a case where the family car failed get through the MOT examination with us here in Harrogate VOSA MOT testing station and it is later fixed by us, then it follows that we'll almost always conduct your retest FREE (i.e. at zero cost to you), this is certainly our thanks to you for deciding to make use of our Harrogate VOSA MOT centre workshops.
