Hi welcome to the forum,

Stand to be corrected but would think in the event an appeal further down the line that the retest part of the test is your only involvement.

If your saying the motor failed earlier this month prior to the floating testers test? & the boss informing that vehicle had been purchased from the auction not long ago personally would want to keep an eye out for those previous fail items as well.

In the testers guide B 16.. If, during the re-examination of a vehicle in any circumstances, it becomes clear that the
vehicle does not meet the necessary standard, whether because the original defect has been inadequately repaired or because another defect is present, the vehicle must be failed and a further VT30 issued.

Hi guys,

I'm new here, this forum was recommended to me by another user I speak to on another forum.

Just noticed a retest booked in for Monday and the initial tester was a floating/temporary tester. I had a quick look on mot history of the vehicle and he has failed it a week ago on a few bits and he has issued quite a few advisories. Looking at the test history it failed on a good bit more in May and after having a chat with my boss he told me the vehicle had been purchased from the auction not long ago.

So if I retest and the repairs I check are ok and I also check the advisories are still pass worthy, in the event of any sort of appeal further down the line is that the end of my involvement? On the off chance the floating tester has missed anything, eg some of the items that the test in May brought to light?

Thanks
