MOT testing garages are required to normally stick to VOSA MOT retesting regulations.

MOT re-testing regulations are quite perplexing and also challenging. Permit us to set the scene for you as regards when you can actually and cannot have a FREE re-test.

Firstly, the initial regulation is the fact that after your car has failed its MOT, the required time frame for the completion of any repair and any subsequent re-test is exactly 10 working days following the first MOT test date. This is valid so long as your family car is remedied and after that booked in to get a re-test before the end of 10 trading days. If all of the above is accurate, that is when the computerised MOT program that all MOT test garages depend on is designed to, at this stage, let us to register your family car and carry out the re-test.

So, it so ensues that the secondary rule may be that in the course of an MOT test it's quite often the case that a handful of elements are often tested again immediately although on the other hand several points command far more calculated checking out.

As an example;

  • If for example the vehicle or light van is rejected on 1 tyre; then a new tyre will be easy to recognize and a "fast track" MOT retest can be carried out, this is likely to take just a minute or 2 for the MOT tester to do and for that reason shouldn't attract a re-test charge.
  • Or a second illustration: Say the vehicle or light commercial vehicle failed its MOT test on headlamp aims, emissions, and brake system; normally your family car needs to be registered with your local Hexham VOSA MOT test centre to secure a part re-test and brought in to the MOT testing bay, then the emissions analysis will have to be done, a not so intense over-all check out completed and then an extensive braking system analysis conducted. This work typically takes further hours of the MOT testers time, and as a consequence this certainly will often attract a re-test expense.

As a consequence despite the fact that we, and almost every MOT centre, advertises and promises FREE tests this is actually, in many instances, based upon when your car is provided for its MOT assessment in Hexham and ultimately just what exactly the vehicle or light commercial vehicle failed its MOT on.

SIGNIFICANTLY - in cases where the vehicle failed its MOT check with us here in Hexham VOSA MOT testing station and its later repaired by us, then it follows that we are able to definitely undertake a retest FREE (i.e. at no cost to you), that is our thanks to you for preferring to go with our Hexham VOSA MOT centre workshops.
