MOT testing stations have got to stick to VOSA MOT retesting procedures.

MOT re-test procedures are extremely challenging and extremely unexciting. Permit us to set the stage for you as to when it's possible to and can't get a FREE re-test.

Firstly, the initial rule is that when a your vehicle or light van has failed its MOT test, the required length of time for any imperative fixing to be finished and any resultant re-test is absolutely 10 business days subsequent to the initial test date. This is correct as long as your vehicle has been mended and then booked in to have a re-test ahead of the end of 10 business days. If all of the aforementioned is true, in that case the computerised MOTing application that all MOT stations utilize will certainly, at this stage, make it possible for us to register your vehicle and perform re-test.

The subsequent rule is often that within the MOT re-examination it is very often a fact that one or two elements could be tested again quickly nevertheless conversely certain elements really need much more measured examination.

As one example;

  • If for instance the vehicle or light commercial van is rejected on 1 tyre; then a changed tyre is not difficult to find and then a "fast track" MOT retest may be done, consuming just a little while for the MOT tester to take care of and as a consequence definitely would not attract a re-test bill.
  • Or a different instance: Suppose the vehicle or light commercial van fails the MOT test on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking system; normally your family car has got to be scheduled with your neighbourhood Alness VOSA MOT testing centre to acquire a part re-test and driven into the MOT testing bay, and then an emissions assessment is required to be executed, a not so rigorous over-all check out completed and a detailed braking system analysis undertaken. This work commonly takes added amounts of the MOT testers time, and which means that this will normally attract a re-test charge.

Accordingly even though we, and just about every MOT test centre, promotes and promotes FREE tests this could be, ordinarily, dependant on when the car is delivered for its MOT exam in Alness and therefore exactly what your family car failed its MOT upon.

SIGNIFICANTLY - if it turns out the vehicle fails to pass its MOT examination with us here within Alness VOSA MOT station and it is subsequently mended by us, then following that we are able to typically carry out any retest FREE (i.e. at zero cost to you), that is our thanks to you personally for preferring to utilise our Alness VOSA MOT testing station workshops.

If you want additional explanation, then the following is a range of the free of charge retest points (if your vehicle or light commercial vehicle failed its MOT relating to any one of these points then a fast track retest can be executed).
