You'd be better off booking a car in for an MOT!

Depends on the local garage - mine offers a free re-test if bought back
within 7 days. I think on the back of the failure sheet it states that the
full fee is applicable, but the garage chooses to ignore this...good
marketing y'see.


Thanks,

the reason i thought they were no longer free is that now they are
computerised i assumed that they have to enter it as a fail via the pc, so a
re-test will have to be re-entered as if a new test if you see what i mean.
i'm sure that there are a few lines in this months lro about it, i think its
near the letters page.

If the vehicle is repaired on site or if brought back within 24 hrs for a minor
item (lights and things) them a fast pass is done otherwise as you say it's
a full re-test that takes about an hour
Most places have upped the price to cover the extra time taken but a lot
still offer free re-tests where I work still offers free retest for 14 days
