MOT test stations should normally observe VOSA MOT retesting policies.

MOT re-testing regulations tend to be considerably convoluted and very uninteresting. Let us set the scenario for you in relation to when you can and will not get the FREE re-test.

To start with, the initial rule is that when a your car has failed its MOT, the obligatory time frame for all the desired repair to be conducted and any resultant re-test is exactly 10 trading days subsequent to the first MOT test date. This is valid provided that the vehicle has been remedied and thereafter registered for a re-test ahead of the end of 10 working days. If all of the above is the case, then the computerised MOTing software that all MOT stations depend on will definitely, at this point, make it possible for us to register the vehicle and perform re-test.

So, it so follows that the secondary rule is often that in the course of an MOT test it's quite often true that a small number of issues can be tested again swiftly whereas on the other hand other points absolutely need more specialised checking out.

One example;

  • If for example the vehicle fails on 1 tyre; then a replaced tyre is easy to spot and a "fast track" MOT test is feasible, this is likely to take just a matter of minutes for the MOT tester to take care of and for that reason wouldn't attract a re-test bill.
  • Or an extra case in point: Say your vehicle failed to pass its MOT examination on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking system; in such a case the vehicle ought to enrolled with your local Ramsgate VOSA MOT station for a part re-test and driven to the MOT testing bay, and then an emissions evaluation ought to be accomplished, a less intensive over-all check completed coupled with a full-blown braking system check done. This work generally requires extra quantities of the MOT testers time, and for that reason this would normally attract a re-test bill.

Accordingly while we, and practically every MOT station, markets and offers FREE tests that may be, nearly always, based upon when the vehicle is brought for its MOT examination in Ramsgate and consequently specifically what the vehicle failed its MOT on.

IMPORTANT - in a case where your family car failed to pass the MOT examination with us here within Ramsgate VOSA MOT garage and its at that point fixed by us, then following that we are able to always do ones retest FREE (i.e. at no cost to you), this is our thanks to you personally for selecting to turn to our Ramsgate VOSA MOT centre workshops.

If you want greater clarification, then here's a listing of the free retest points (if the family car failed its MOT upon these kinds of details then a prompt retest could very well be conducted).
