MOT testing stations need to comply with VOSA MOT retesting procedures.

MOT re-test regulations are rather complicated and incredibly mundane. Allow us to set the stage to help you as to when it's possible to and cannot obtain a FREE re-test.

To begin with, the primary rule is the fact that as soon as the vehicle has failed its MOT test, the required time for the completion of any repair and any subsequent re-test is precisely 10 trading days subsequent to the initial day of test. This applies providing that the vehicle is mended and thereafter registered to obtain a re-test ahead of the end of 10 trading days. If all of the above has been carried out, subsequently the computerised MOT software program all MOT test stations employ should, at this stage, let us to register your car and perform the re-test.

So, it so ensues that the second procedure tends to be that at the time of an MOT re-examination it is more often than not a fact that a handful of items can be tested again very fast although on the contrary many items call for considerably more deliberated assessment.

An example;

  • Case in point your family car falls short on 1 tyre; then a changed tyre will be easy to see and then a "fast track" MOT test may be done, taking only a matter of minutes for the MOT tester to execute and hence wouldn't attract a re-test charge.
  • Or still another case study: Let's suppose your vehicle fails the MOT check on headlamp aims, emissions, and brake system; in this instance the vehicle really needs to be scheduled with your nearest Montrose VOSA MOT station for the partial re-test and brought to the MOT testing bay, once there the emissions test must be undertaken, a much less intense all around check out executed coupled with a full-blown brake test carried out. This work frequently will take added hours of the MOT testers time, and thus this would in general attract a re-test fee.

As a consequence while we, and each and every MOTing station, advertises and provides FREE retests it's really, regularly, based upon when your car is made available for its MOT check in Montrose and consequently just what your car failed the MOT upon.

SIGNIFICANTLY - in cases where the vehicle or light commercial van fails it's MOT test with us here within Montrose VOSA MOT station and its thereafter fixed by us, then in this case we will generally facilitate ones retest FREE (i.e. at zero cost to you), and that is our thanks to you for deciding to utilise our Montrose VOSA MOT garage workshops.

If you require any further explanation, then here's a listing of the zero-cost retest points (if your vehicle or light van failed the MOT regarding any one of these details then a fast retest could very well be executed).
