MOT testing stations must absolutely obey VOSA MOT retesting policies.

MOT re-test protocols tend to be relatively bewildering and intensely uninteresting. Allow us to set the scene for you as to when you're able to and cannot have a FREE re-test.

For starters, the initial rule is the fact that as soon as your family car has failed its MOT, the recommended time for the completion of any repair and any resulting re-test is exactly 10 working days following on from the primary test date. This is true providing that your family car has been fixed and thereafter registered to acquire a re-test prior to the end of 10 business days. If all of the above is accurate, then the computerised MOT test application all MOT centres utilise will certainly, at this stage, enable us to register your vehicle and carry out the re-test.

So, it thus follows that the subsequent procedure may be that within the MOT re-test it is commonly the case that selected items are often re-tested almost instantly whereas in contrast various components should have more concentrated analysis.

To give an example;

  • For instance the car is rejected on 1 tyre; then a new tyre is easy to find and then a "fast track" MOT test can be done, taking just a jiffy of the MOT testers time and so will not attract a re-test bill.
  • Or an alternate example: Let's assume the vehicle fails to pass its MOT test on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking system; here your car needs to be scheduled with your local Gatwick VOSA MOT station to get a partial re-test and taken into the MOT testing bay, and then an emissions test needs to be undertaken, a light involved over-all check out accomplished as well as an extensive braking mechanism analysis carried out. This work naturally will take extra quantities of the MOT testers time, and that's why it's going to generally attract a re-test fee.

As a consequence despite the fact that we, and practically every MOT station, markets and offers FREE tests this is really, on the whole, influenced by when your vehicle or light van is provided for its MOT examination in Gatwick and accordingly just what exactly your car failed its MOT on.

SIGNIFICANTLY - if perhaps your vehicle or light commercial van failed to pass the MOT test with us here within Gatwick VOSA MOT centre and its later fixed by us, then in this case we will always perform a retest FREE (i.e. at no cost to you), it is our thanks to you personally for preferring to try our Gatwick VOSA MOT testing station workshops.
