    thanks buddy

    Do you mean if it fails at one garage go to another one in the hope they pass it?,which garage gave you the free mot for life as I am pretty sure you can't just turn up and ask for a free mot

    how I'm reading this is, I think he's saying he gets his free mot done, if it does fail, he will then take it to another garage to get the repairs done.But OP I think you need to check whether the original garage will do a free re-test as another garage has done the repairs *(dependent on what it fails on)

    * 'No Fee' Retest Items

    Retest will normally cost you if repaired at another Garage

    I wouldn't take my car to any garage that was doing the mot for free, they will find faults to make their money on

    Possibly off topic but maybe worth mentioning - if you submit for MOT early and it fails but you continue driving as 'current' MOT does not expire for a further 22 days you may still be committing Road Traffic Offences (it is quite a grey area but could lead to complications). Technically the failed MOT does not supersede the current Valid MOT but as everything is now computerised it will show that car was presented for MOT but failed. While I don't think you could be charged for driving a car without a MOT you could be penalised for driving an 'unroadworthy' vehicle. Also, it would give your insurance company a perfect get out clause if the vehicle was involved in any accidents before you got the chance to re-submit for MOT.

    As I say, perhaps off topic and you didn't mention if you intended to drive the vehicle for a further 22 days before going for another MOT or getting it done straight away.

    my thoughts exactly.

    they do it for free, i enquired about a full service, £190 they said, i said just mot please.

    if it fails it goes to my dads mates garage for an MOT, hes already booked me in for the full service, £70
