MOT testing stations must absolutely comply with VOSA MOT retesting rules.

MOT re-testing requirements tend to be considerably perplexing and also very difficult. We want to set the scene to help you in regards to when you can actually and can't obtain a FREE re-test.

To begin, the primary rule is that as soon as the vehicle or light van has failed its MOT, the compulsory time frame for the completion of any repair and any subsequent re-test is precisely 10 business days after your primary test date. This is true provided that your vehicle or light commercial van has been remedied and then registered to have a re-test before the end of 10 trading days. If all of the aforementioned has been accomplished, that is when the computerised MOT program all MOT stations work with is designed to, at that time, make it possible for us to register your car and perform re-test.

So, it therefore follows that the 2nd rule would be the fact in the course of an MOT re-examination it is quite often the case that a couple of elements could be re-tested fairly quickly yet on the flip side several items demand much more focused testing.

To give an example;

  • If for example the family car is rejected on 1 tyre; then a replacement tyre is easy to distinguish and a "fast track" MOT test can be performed, taking only a short while for the MOT tester to carry out and hence would never attract a re-test fee.
  • Or an alternate example of this: If the vehicle or light commercial vehicle fails its MOT examination on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking system; in this instance your car has got to be enrolled with your local Ewhurst VOSA MOT test station to secure a partial re-test and brought to the MOT test bay, then the emissions analysis will be accomplished, a not so involved overall check carried out and then a full braking mechanism assessment undertaken. This work routinely takes further hours of the MOT testers time, and that's why this could customarily attract a re-test charge.

For that reason whilst we, and pretty much every MOT test centre, advertises and promises FREE tests it is, typically, determined by when the vehicle or light commercial vehicle is made available for its MOT examination in Ewhurst and accordingly what exactly your car failed the MOT upon.

IMPORTANTLY - if perhaps your car fails it's MOT examination with us here within Ewhurst VOSA MOT testing centre and it is thereafter mended by us, then it follows that we shall typically perform your retest FREE (i.e. at no cost to you), that's our thanks to you personally for choosing to utilise our Ewhurst VOSA MOT centre workshops.

If you're after in depth explanation, then what follows is a range of the free retest items (if your vehicle or light van failed the MOT on any of these problems then a fast track retest can be undertaken).
