MOT testing stations are required to generally comply with VOSA MOT retesting requirements.

MOT re-test requirements are rather perplexing and really challenging. We want to set the stage to help you in relation to when you're able to and cannot receive a FREE re-test.

For starters, the primary rule is usually that after the vehicle or light commercial vehicle has failed its MOT, the necessary time for the completion of any repair and any subsequent re-test is absolutely 10 trading days subsequent to the primary day of test. This is true on condition that the family car is mended and successively registered to acquire a re-test before the end of 10 trading days. If all of the aforementioned is the case, in that case the computerised MOT process all MOT garages depend on is designed to, at this juncture, allow us to register your car and perform re-test.

The secondary rule is always that within the MOT test it's typically true that a few items might be tested again almost immediately although conversely various issues really need far more focused checks.

To illustrate;

  • If for example the car falls short on 1 tyre; then a replaced tyre is simple to distinguish and a "fast track" MOT retest is feasible, taking only a minute or 2 of the MOT testers time and so will not attract a re-test expense.
  • Or a further scenario: Say your car failed its MOT test on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking systems; normally the family car will need to be signed up with your neighbourhood Crawley VOSA MOT testing centre for a part re-test and brought to the MOT testing bay, and then the emissions assessment has got to be done, a less intensive over-all examination accomplished including a detailed braking system test conducted. This work in general will take extra amounts of the MOT testers time, and accordingly it is going to in general attract a re-test bill.

And as a result despite the fact that we, and almost every MOT test station, promotes and promotes FREE tests it's, routinely, based upon when your vehicle is presented for its MOT assessment in Crawley and consequently exactly what your vehicle or light van failed its MOT on.

IMPORTANTLY - in a case where the car fails get through the MOT test with us here in Crawley VOSA MOT garage and is then fixed by us, then in that case, we will definitely accomplish your retest FREE (i.e. at zero cost to you), that's our thanks to you personally for choosing to go with our Crawley VOSA MOT garage workshops.

If you need additional explanation, then here's a listing of the costless retest points (if the vehicle failed the MOT over these kinds of problems then a fast track retest will be conducted).
