Most people in that area just give the car a quick visual check (lights, wipers, tyres, etc) and then submit the car for testing and see if it passes or fails. I have seen many mechanics promise their customers the car will pass but as the test is so strict there is no gaurantee.

One main advantage of their system is that there is no financial advantage should the car pass or fail so it is therefore much less likely to be open to fraud.
