MOT testing garages must abide by VOSA MOT retest procedures.

MOT re-testing rules tend to be rather baffling and monotonous. Let's set the scenario for you as regards when it's possible to and will not receive a FREE re-test.

Initially, the primary rule tends to be that as soon as your vehicle has failed its MOT, the critical time for the completion of any repair and any pursuing re-test is exactly 10 business days following your initial day of test. This is valid provided that the vehicle is remedied and then booked in to have a re-test prior to the end of 10 working days. If all of the above has been completed, subsequently the computerised MOT software program that all MOT garages operate ought to, at that point, enable us to register the family car and do the re-test.

The 2nd procedure tends to be that during an MOT test it's regularly true that certain points may be re-tested quickly whereas on the flip side various components take far more deliberated assessing.

For instance;

  • If for example your vehicle or light van fails on 1 tyre; then a replaced tyre is easy to distinguish and a "fast track" MOT test is feasible, this normally would take only a short while for the MOT tester to accomplish and thus shouldn't attract a re-test cost.
  • Or still another example of this: Let's imagine your vehicle or light commercial vehicle fails its MOT test on headlamp aims, emissions, and brakes; in such cases the vehicle will have to be registered with your local Wokingham VOSA MOT garage to obtain a partial re-test and taken in to the MOT test bay, and then the emissions test should be executed, a much less rigorous overall check out performed in addition to a full-blown braking system test undertaken. This work commonly requires increased amounts of the MOT testers time, and as a consequence this would more often than not attract a re-test charge.

That being said even though we, and nearly every MOTing garage, advertises and promotes FREE tests it's really, quite often, based on when your car is delivered for its MOT examination in Wokingham and subsequently what exactly your vehicle failed the MOT on.

SIGNIFICANTLY - if you find your family car failed the MOT test with us here at Wokingham VOSA MOT station and is then fixed by us, then in that case, we will typically carry out any retest FREE (i.e. 100% free), that is our thanks to you for selecting to try our Wokingham VOSA MOT test station workshops.

If you need more explanation, then here is a number of the 100 % free retest points (if your vehicle or light van failed the MOT relating to one of these factors then a speedy retest may very well be carried out).
