MOT test stations are required to always observe VOSA MOT retesting procedures.

MOT re-test procedures are pretty difficult to understand and very mundane. We want to set the stage to help you in regards to when you can and will not get a FREE re-test.

First, the initial rule would be that when a your vehicle or light van has failed its MOT, the applicable amount of time for any recommended repair to be accomplished and any pursuing re-test is just 10 business days after your first test date. This holds true provided that the vehicle or light commercial vehicle has been remedied and accordingly registered to have a re-test prior to the end of 10 trading days. If all of the above is true, in that case the computerised MOT test software that all MOT garages use would, at this juncture, allow us to register the vehicle and perform the re-test.

Thereafter it therefore follows that the second procedure tends to be that in the course of an MOT re-examination it's all too often the case that a small number of items could be tested again quickly yet on the flip side some components mandate considerably more measured evaluation.

For illustration;

  • To illustrate your car falls short on 1 tyre; then a changed tyre is not hard to distinguish and then a "fast track" MOT test can be accomplished, this would undoubtedly take just a jiffy of the MOT testers energy and so should not attract a re-test charge.
  • Or one more illustration: Suppose your car failed the MOT test on headlamp aims, emissions, and brake system; in this situation the vehicle has got to be scheduled with your local Crawley VOSA MOT testing station to secure a part re-test and brought directly into MOT testing bay, then the emissions evaluation has to be carried out, a far less comprehensive all around check done plus a detailed brake check performed. This work quite often takes further hours of the MOT testers time, and for these reasons this will certainly more often than not attract a re-test expense.

For this reason even though we, and virtually every MOT garage, promotes and boasts FREE tests this could be, more often than not, determined by when the car is made available for its MOT exam in Crawley and following that what exactly the vehicle failed its MOT on.

IMPORTANT - assuming your vehicle fails get through the MOT examination with us here at Crawley VOSA MOT testing centre and is afterwards repaired by us, then it follows that we can generally conduct the retest FREE (i.e. free of charge), that is our thanks to you for selecting to benefit from our Crawley VOSA MOT test centre workshops.

If you want added explanation, then what follows is a range of the gratis retest items (if the car failed the MOT over these kinds of areas then a fast track retest may very well be undertaken).
