When you need a retest

In the unfortunate event of your car failing to pass an MOT test then Alastair Reid Garages can undertake the necessary work to ensure a test pass, there is no additional test fee in this instance. You may prefer to take the car away and undertake the work elsewhere, in which case a retest will be required.

Should you return with your vehicle for testing before the end of the next working day then you won’t have to pay again if the vehicle is brought back to the same test centre. This applies only for a partial retest only on the following items

  • bonnet
  • boot lid
  • brake pedal anti-slip
  • direction indicators
  • doors
  • drop-sides
  • fuel filler cap
  • hazard warning
  • horn
  • lamps (excluding headlamp aim)
  • loading door
  • mirrors
  • rear reflectors
  • registration plates
  • seatbelts (excluding body around anchorage points)
  • seats
  • sharp edges or projections
  • steering wheel
  • tailboard
  • tailgate
  • tow-bars (excluding body around anchorage points)
  • vehicle identification number (VIN)
  • windscreen and glass
  • windscreen wipers
  • windscreen washers
  • wheels and tyres (excluding motorbikes and motorbikes with side-car)

Any other reason for failure will require a retest.

If the vehicle is removed from the test centre for repair and returned within 10 working days following the day it originally failed, then only a partial retest is needed. In this case a partial retest fee will be charged.

In all other cases, you’ll need to get a full retest and pay the full MOT fee again.
