MOT test garages have got to comply with VOSA MOT retest policies.

MOT re-testing regulations tend to be pretty intricate and also tedious. We want to set the scenario to help you as regards when you're able to and can't get a FREE re-test.

For starters, the very initial rule is that when a your family car has failed to pass its MOT, the required time-frame for the completion of any repair and any pursuing re-test is only 10 business days subsequent to the original test date. This is correct on condition that your car has been fixed and successively scheduled in to have a re-test ahead of the end of 10 working days. If all of the aforementioned has been accomplished, then the computerised MOT process that all MOT test centres depend on will certainly, at this point, let us to register your family car and do the re-test.

The second rule tends to be that within the MOT re-examination it's often times a fact that certain issues may be tested again fairly quickly whilst on the flip side certain components will need much more calculated analysis.

To give an example;

  • To illustrate your vehicle or light commercial van fails on 1 tyre; a changed tyre is not difficult to find and a "fast track" MOT test can be done, this will take only a jiffy for the MOT tester to deal with and accordingly will not attract a re-test bill.
  • Or yet another illustration: Imagine if your vehicle or light commercial vehicle fails get through the MOT examination on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking systems; in this case your vehicle will have to be scheduled with your nearest Northampton VOSA MOT station to get a part re-test and driven into the MOT test bay, and then the emissions evaluation would have to be done, a substantially less intensive all around check completed including a full-blown brake check executed. This work normally requires additional quantities of the MOT testers time, and because of that this would usually attract a re-test expense.

That being said even though we, and practically every MOTing centre, promotes and promises FREE tests that may be, commonly, based on when the family car is delivered for its MOT examination in Northampton and successively precisely what your car failed its MOT on.

NOTABLY - if perhaps your family car failed its MOT check with us here in Northampton VOSA MOT test centre and it is at that point repaired by us, then in that case, we will typically undertake the retest FREE (i.e. at zero cost to you), that's our thanks to you personally for making a choice to make full use of our Northampton VOSA MOT centre workshops.

If you require additional clarification, then here's a listing of the 100 percent free retest items (if your vehicle or light commercial van failed its MOT relating to any one of these points then a prompt retest could very well be performed).

The team was very friendly and now I won't go anywhere else for my car stuff!

I used to go to Halfords for my MOT, but Northampton MOT (S&G Services) surpassed them on many levels.

Everything was brilliant, really good customer service, very helpful staff.
