The different classes of automobiles will have their core systems checked during the check. The price of the assessment can vary but there is a national maximum that a registered garage is permitted to charge. If a vehicle fails a test the owner will be should be offered the result from the failed test. The owner can then make a decision on how they are going to complete repairs on the car before any re-assessment is booked. If they decide on taking the car to another garage they might find that there are additional charges for the re-check. Many different systems on the vehicles are going to be inspected and tested throughout the check. The checklist for the test is lengthy and additional assessments are added every single year. Some systems checked during the check include the exhaust, tyres, suspension system, windscreen, lights, and structural integrity. Most of these systems will require professional skill to repair if necessary. The most common failed item on the vehicle check is the humble lights.

Without having operational lights it would be dangerous to drive in certain lighting including the evening and early morning. Many people could easily avoid this failure by completing a quick visual inspection of the vehicle before taking a vehicle for the test.
