MOT testing stations must absolutely obey VOSA MOT retesting regulations.

MOT re-testing requirements are very complex and monotonous. We'll set the scene for you as regards when you're able to and will not get a FREE re-test.

To begin with, the initial regulation is always that once your vehicle has failed its MOT test, the compulsory length of time for the recommended car repairs to be accomplished and any resultant re-test is precisely 10 business days subsequent to the first MOT test date. This is correct providing your vehicle has been fixed and thereafter registered to obtain a re-test prior to the end of 10 working days. If all of the aforementioned has been carried out, then the computerised MOT test system all MOT stations employ would, at this juncture, make it possible for us to register the family car and carry out the re-test.

The secondary procedure is always that at the time of an MOT re-examination it's sometimes true that a handful of components may be re-tested in a short time whereas on the other hand some elements take more focused testing.

For illustration;

  • If for instance your vehicle or light van falls short on 1 tyre; then a changed tyre is not hard to find and then a "fast track" MOT test can be done, taking only a couple of minutes for the MOT tester to do and accordingly will not attract a re-test charge.
  • Or an additional instance: Imagine if the vehicle failed to pass its MOT test on headlamp aims, emissions, and brake system; in such cases your car really needs to be scheduled with your neighbourhood Wakefield VOSA MOT test garage for a partial re-test and brought in to the MOT test bay, and then the emissions check should be done, a light concentrated general check done including a total braking mechanism analysis administered. This work mostly will take extra quantities of the MOT testers time, and that is why this certainly will generally attract a re-test fee.

And as a result even though we, and just about every MOT test station, markets and offers FREE tests this is actually, more often than not, determined by when your car is supplied for its MOT test in Wakefield and ultimately specifically what your vehicle failed its MOT upon.

IMPORTANTLY - in the case your family car fails get through its MOT examination with us here at Wakefield VOSA MOT centre and is thereafter fixed by us, then in this case we are able to generally execute any retest FREE (i.e. at no cost to you), and that is our thanks to you personally for making a choice to try our Wakefield VOSA MOT centre workshops.

If you're after more explanation, then right here is list of the no cost retest items (if the vehicle or light van failed the MOT over one of these things then a fast track retest will be done).
