MOT testing centres need to observe VOSA MOT re-test procedures.

MOT re-test procedures are considerably perplexing and very boring. We'll set the scene for you as regards when you are able and will not obtain a FREE re-test.

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.

For illustration;

  • If for example the vehicle falls short on 1 tyre; a new tyre is not hard to find and a "fast track" MOT retest can be done, taking just a short while of the MOT testers valuable time and and so definitely would not attract a re-test expense.
  • Or an alternative case in point: Imagine if your vehicle or light van fails to pass the MOT check on headlamp aims, emissions, and brakes; in such cases the vehicle or light van has got to be registered with your local Brighton VOSA MOT test garage to obtain a part re-test and taken to the MOT testing bay, and then an emissions examination needs to be carried out, a less rigorous all round check out completed plus a complete brake analysis done. This work customarily requires increased amounts of the MOT testers time, and consequently this would usually attract a re-test cost.

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).
