    The 14 day rule used to be the case but the law recently changed and now you get 24 hours to get repairs done at a different garage and return for the re-test or you have to pay the test fee again.

    This new rule in reality make things extremely difficult to avoid re-test fees :'(

    I don't know where you got your info but I have done this recently & had no problem taking it back within 14 days.

    Are you sure you don't work for a garage? >:( >:(

    I have used Bedfordshire County Council Vehicle Depot for years - Tel 01234-327369. They are honest, reliable and cheap and are based at their Depot in London Road, Bedford.

    They have now been "privatised" and have been run by Balfour Beatty Plant Services for about 5 years - but the same staff are doing the work!. They will always quote for repair work if you need it.

    Major: have you contacted the council and/or ambulance service in that area? These duties may be contracted out to a commercial firm, it may not be available where you are.

    If its of any help, the locacl authority test station is at the Thamesdown Bus garage in Corporation Street. As per all previous comments, you get an unbiased and thorough MOT from them. Their praises cannot be sung high enough. ;)
