I found this out the hard way. 88 for a poxy bit of paper. What a waste.

I know it's not the garages/test station's fault it's turned out this way...
I expect most people now will have the work done at the garages and pay full price for parts and labour and then have the retest for half the fee and that's where they'll make their money so really they are laughing along with VOSA...

How much is it now these days for an MOT?
I paid 35.00 last time...and does anybody know if garages still do a pre-mot test and how much is that??

Another thing I heard was that if your car failed the mot and you go away and have the work done straight away the same day and get it back to the test station the same day then they won't charge... does anybody know about this?

I may ave started a good thread ere!!
