MOT test garages have got to abide by VOSA MOT retesting procedures.

MOT re-testing regulations are quite convoluted and incredibly monotonous. Allow us to set the landscape for you as to when you're able to and can't receive a FREE re-test.

To start with, the primary regulation is the fact that as soon as the vehicle has failed its MOT, the necessary time period for your requisite fixes to be completed and any pursuing re-test is absolutely 10 business days following your initial day of test. This holds true as long as the family car has been repaired and thereafter registered to have a re-test before the end of 10 trading days. If all of the aforementioned is the case, then the computerised MOT application all MOT centres operate is able to, at this juncture, permit us to register your family car and perform the re-test.

The subsequent procedure is the fact that during an MOT test it's repeatedly true that a number of components might be tested again without delay whilst conversely certain points take far more deliberated evaluation.

As an example;

  • If for example the car fails on 1 tyre; then a replacement tyre will be easy to distinguish and then a "fast track" MOT retest may be done, consuming just a couple of minutes for the MOT tester to deal with and for that reason definitely would not attract a re-test charge.
  • Or another case study: If your vehicle or light commercial van fails its MOT examination on headlamp aims, emissions, and brake system; in this instance your car ought to enrolled with your nearest Slough VOSA MOT testing garage to secure a partial re-test and driven to the MOT testing bay, then the emissions assessment will have to be performed, a significantly less concentrated all round examination undertaken including a detailed braking mechanism check administered. This work quite often will take further quantities of the MOT testers time, and because of that this certainly will in general attract a re-test fee.

And as a result despite the fact that we, and pretty much every MOTing garage, advertises and promises FREE retests this is often, generally speaking, based on when your vehicle or light van is supplied for its MOT assessment in Slough and ultimately just what exactly the vehicle failed the MOT on.

IMPORTANTLY - in the event your car fails the MOT examination with us here at Slough VOSA MOT test centre and its thereafter fixed by us, then following that we'll generally facilitate the retest FREE (i.e. completely free), this is certainly our thanks to you for opting to utilise our Slough VOSA MOT test station workshops.

If you need added explanation, then this is a list of the free of charge retest points (if the vehicle failed its MOT on any of these issues then a speedy retest could very well be carried out).
