My car has failed its MOT – what do I do now?

If your car has failed its MOT test, you have several options, listed below.

  • We can quote for and carry out all repairs detailed in your MOT test report. You can leave your car with us and we will sort everything out for you and will complete a free re-test.
  • If your car has failed on some minor issues, you may be eligible for a free, next-day re-test. To see a list of ‘no fee’ retest items, click here.
  • You can take the car away and repair it yourself or get someone else to do it. You will then be able to book a re-test within 10 days and pay a reduced rate re-test fee.

Return your car to us for both the rectification work and the re-test within 10 working days and your MOT re-test is FREE.

If your car is booked in and presented by the end of the next working day (subject to appointment availability) for one or more of the list of free re-test items then your MOT re-test is free. One MOT re-test per failure only.
