MOT test garages have to observe VOSA MOT retesting policies.

MOT re-test protocols tend to be really perplex and very uninteresting. We'll set the scenario for you in relation to when you're able to and cannot get yourself a FREE re-test.

To start with, the first rule is that after the vehicle has failed its MOT, the requisite length of time for your critical repair to be carried out and any following re-test is precisely 10 working days following your original day of test. This is correct assuming that your family car has been remedied and accordingly registered to get a re-test ahead of the end of 10 working days. If all of the aforementioned is the case, that is when the computerised MOT test device all MOT garages utilize would, at that time, allow us to register the family car and do the re-test.

So, it therefore follows that the subsequent procedure would be that at the time of an MOT re-examination it's nearly always the case that certain elements are often tested again almost immediately yet on the other hand a quantity of elements call for significantly more focused analysis.

Here is an example;

  • If for example the car falls short on 1 tyre; then a new tyre is not difficult to distinguish and then a "fast track" MOT retest can be performed, taking just a little while of the MOT testers time and for this reason would never attract a re-test fee.
  • Or a further example: Imagine if your vehicle or light commercial vehicle failed the MOT check on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking systems; normally your family car is required to be scheduled with your local Bury St Edmunds VOSA MOT station to get a part re-test and driven directly into MOT test bay, once there an emissions analysis will need to be accomplished, a substantially less concentrated all around check completed and a total braking system check conducted. This work quite often requires additional amounts of the MOT testers time, and which means that this would often attract a re-test expense.

Accordingly despite the fact that we, and each individual MOT centre, advertises and boasts FREE tests these are, commonly, based on when your vehicle is supplied for its MOT test in Bury St Edmunds and therefore what exactly your vehicle or light van failed its MOT on.

NOTABLY - in the event your car fails to pass its MOT test with us here at Bury St Edmunds VOSA MOT testing garage and it is later mended by us, then it follows that we shall invariably carry out any retest FREE (i.e. completely free), this really is our thanks to you for opting to make use of our Bury St Edmunds VOSA MOT station workshops.
