First, the primary rule is that once the vehicle or light van has failed its MOT, the critical amount of time for the completion of any repair and any resultant re-test is absolutely 10 trading days following on from the initial day of test. This holds true as long as the vehicle or light van is fixed and thereafter registered to acquire a re-test before the end of 10 working days. If all of the aforementioned is correct, then the computerised MOTing software that all MOT garages work with will, no doubt, at that point, allow us to register your family car and do the re-test.
The 2nd rule is often that within the MOT re-examination it is commonly a fact that a number of points might be re-tested quickly whilst on the flip side other points demand considerably more measured evaluation.
So whilst we, and pretty much every MOT centre, promotes and promotes FREE tests it's really, quite often, determined by when the vehicle or light van is provided for its MOT examination in Brighton and successively what specifically your family car failed the MOT upon.
NOTABLY - if you find your car fails it's MOT examination with us here within Brighton VOSA MOT station and its then mended by us, then in this case we'll typically facilitate a retest FREE (i.e. at zero cost to you), it is our thanks to you for deciding to turn to our Brighton VOSA MOT test station workshops.
If you're after additional clarification, then the following is a list of the no cost retest points (if the family car failed the MOT regarding these kinds of matters then a fast track retest could very well be undertaken).
