MOT testing garages must observe VOSA MOT re-test protocols.

MOT re-test rules are moderately bewildering and challenging. Allow us to set the scenario for you as to when you are able and will not have a FREE re-test.

First, the first rule is usually that after the vehicle has failed to pass its MOT, the recommended time-frame for any necessary adjustments to be undertaken and any resulting re-test is just 10 trading days after your primary day of test. This is valid providing your vehicle has been fixed and then booked in to acquire a re-test ahead of the end of 10 trading days. If all of the above has been accomplished, then the computerised MOT test system that all MOTing stations depend on will definitely, at that time, make it possible for us to register your family car and perform re-test.

The second procedure is during an MOT re-examination it is very often the case that a couple of items can be tested again almost immediately though conversely selected items really need a good deal more concentrated assessment.

An example;

  • Case in point the vehicle or light van fails on 1 tyre; a replacement tyre will be easy to find and a "fast track" MOT test can be done, this is going to take only a couple of minutes of the MOT testers energy and hence shouldn't attract a re-test expense.
  • Or a different example: Let's say the vehicle fails get through the MOT examination on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking system; in cases like this your vehicle or light van ought to enrolled with your nearest Morpeth VOSA MOT test garage to acquire a partial re-test and taken to the MOT testing bay, then an emissions check is required to be completed, a not so intense general check performed together with a detailed braking system analysis executed. This work normally takes added amounts of the MOT testers time, and for that reason this is going to more often than not attract a re-test fee.

And so while we, and pretty much every MOT test station, markets and promises FREE retests it's really, generally speaking, dependant upon when your vehicle or light commercial van is brought for its MOT assessment in Morpeth and at that point exactly what the car failed its MOT on.

IMPORTANT - in the event the car fails its MOT examination with us here at Morpeth VOSA MOT testing garage and it is afterwards mended by us, then following that we are able to always do your retest FREE (i.e. 100 percent free), that's our thanks to you for selecting to make full use of our Morpeth VOSA MOT testing station workshops.

If you're after extra clarification, then this is a list of the 100 percent free retest points (if your vehicle or light commercial vehicle failed the MOT on one of these things then a fast retest can be conducted).
