MOT test centres have got to obey VOSA MOT re-test rules.

MOT re-test requirements tend to be rather complicated and uninteresting. We'll set the scene for you as to when you can and can't have a FREE re-test.

To begin, the primary regulation is usually that once your vehicle has failed to get through its MOT, the recommended period of time for the completion of any repair and any resultant re-test is exactly 10 trading days following your original day of test. This is valid on condition that the vehicle or light van has been remedied and accordingly scheduled in for a re-test prior to the end of 10 trading days. If all of the above is the case, in that case the computerised MOT programme all MOT test centres utilise would, at this time, make it possible for us to register your car and do the re-test.

The subsequent procedure tends to be that in the course of an MOT test it's repeatedly true that just a few elements may be tested again instantly though alternatively other elements must have far more calculated examination.

One example is;

  • If for example your vehicle or light commercial vehicle falls short on 1 tyre; a changed tyre is a breeze to determine and then a "fast track" MOT test can be done, this is going to take only a short while of the MOT testers time and hence will not attract a re-test bill.
  • Or a further example: Let's assume your family car failed the MOT examination on headlamp aims, emissions, and braking systems; normally your vehicle or light commercial van should be enrolled with your local Eastbourne VOSA MOT test station to get a partial re-test and taken in to the MOT testing bay, once there an emissions check has got to be completed, a not so concentrated over-all check done along with a full-blown braking system test completed. This work normally requires increased quantities of the MOT testers time, and as a consequence this would usually attract a re-test charge.

Accordingly while we, and each individual MOTing station, promotes and promotes FREE retests it is, on the whole, determined by when your family car is presented for its MOT test in Eastbourne and accordingly what specifically the vehicle failed its MOT on.

NOTABLY - if your vehicle or light commercial van failed to pass it's MOT examination with us here in Eastbourne VOSA MOT test centre and it is subsequently fixed by us, then in that case, we'll generally accomplish the retest FREE (i.e. at no cost to you), that is our thanks to you for making a choice to make use of our Eastbourne VOSA MOT testing garage workshops.
