The CAT Council: supplier (M-Z) responses

“About £40 is a fair rate for basic job, but it varies depending on how complicated the job is, as you are paying for the knowledge of the fitter.

Garages should be allowed to charge what they feel is fair price for an MOT, or offer a free retest, guess it depends if they think the car is going to fail or not, after all they could be getting paid to do the work it failed on.

Just because a garage has a sign outside saying it is licensed, it does not mean you won’t get shoddy workmanship, they are only as good as the people doing the work and they could have changed since the licensed was granted. After all I have seen some bodges done by Gas Safe engineers before!

NO, the industry is too varied, does a garage that only fits tyres need the same license as one that is doing crash repair? After all there are already rules on what you can and can not do with tyres, why burden us with more regulations?”
