What is a partial retest?
A partial retest will examine all of the items that your vehicle failed on during the full test, any item(s) that may have been affected by the repairs and any minor defect or item advised on at the time of the initial test.
If during a retest it is clear that the vehicle has any major or dangerous defects a new Notification of a Refusal to Issue a Certificate of Compliance will be issued.
Please note: your partial retest must take place at the same test centre as the original full test and it will take approximately 15 to 30 minutes.
