WHAT IF FAILURE HAPPENS?

If your vehicle fails you can still drive it away providing your current certificate is still in date.
There is an appeals procedure that you can follow to contest the decision to fail a vehicle, details are available at test centres and online on https://www.gov.uk/getting-an-mot/after-the-test
Most test centres have the capacity to arrange to fix any problems in order to get the vehicle to pass the minimum standard requirements as laid down, in many cases our customers ask us to do a service at the same time, that way you can save money in the event something needs fixing to get through the test.
