MOT test centres are required to normally stick to VOSA MOT retest regulations.

MOT re-test regulations are relatively baffling and also unexciting. Let's set the scene to help you as to when you can actually and will not get yourself a FREE re-test.

Initially, the first regulation is always that after your family car has failed its MOT, the required time period for the completion of any repair and any following re-test is only 10 trading days following your first day of test. This is valid on condition that the vehicle has been remedied and subsequently registered to have a re-test before the end of 10 business days. If all of the aforementioned has been undertaken, that is when the computerised MOT test programme all MOT centres make use of would, at this time, enable us to register the car and perform re-test.

The subsequent rule is usually that during an MOT re-examination it is repeatedly a fact that several points may be re-tested almost instantly nevertheless alternatively particular items take a good deal more concentrated assessment.

For illustration;

  • If for example your vehicle is rejected on 1 tyre; then a replacement tyre is simple to recognize and a "fast track" MOT test can be done, this probably would take only a couple of minutes of the MOT testers energy and and so wouldn't attract a re-test bill.
  • Or yet another scenario: Imagine if your family car fails its MOT test on headlamp aims, emissions, and brakes; in this case your family car has got to be signed up with your neighbourhood Jarrow VOSA MOT garage for the part re-test and brought to the MOT testing bay, then an emissions evaluation ought to be completed, a not so involved all around check out done and a full braking mechanism test executed. This work typically requires added amounts of the MOT testers time, and for these reasons it is going to customarily attract a re-test cost.

And so although we, and each and every MOT test centre, promotes and promises FREE retests it's, commonly, dependant on when the car is presented for its MOT check in Jarrow and successively what exactly your car failed its MOT on.

IMPORTANTLY - if it turns out your vehicle fails to pass it's MOT examination with us here at Jarrow VOSA MOT testing centre and its then mended by us, then following that we can nearly always complete the retest FREE (i.e. 100 percent free), it is our thanks to you for making a choice to make full use of our Jarrow VOSA MOT test station workshops.

If you require any further explanation, then below is a selection of the cost free retest points (if the vehicle or light commercial vehicle failed the MOT upon any one of these details then a fast track retest can be accomplished).
