c. MOT Test Cover
The MOT Test Cover is in addition to your legal rights, and does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer. There must be a minimum of 3 months before your MOT test is due. Any exploratory dismantling charges will only be reimbursed as part of a valid claim. It is the responsibility of the vehicle owner to authorise dismantling and to pay charges if such dismantling proves that the failure is not covered by the MOT Test Cover. If any claim is fraudulent in any respect all benefits under this MOT Test Cover will be forfeited. The reimbursement for any claim under this MOT Test Cover shall not exceed the manufacturer’s list prices for parts and labour costs necessarily incurred in repair of covered components up to the maximum claim liability stipulated on in this document. The Administrator shall not be liable for any statement or representation, written or verbal (by whomsoever made), which contradicts the terms and conditions in this MOT Test Cover, unless such statement or representation is supported in writing by the Company on their behalf. A VAT receipted invoice from your DS retailer must support all claims.
This MOT Test Cover does not cover:
The cost of the MOT test or re-test. Any parts which have not actually failed, which are replaced or reported during routine servicing and/or repair of other parts which have failed. Any component covered by any other existing warranties or insurances. Any loss to the MOT Cover Holder in excess of the maximum claim liability. Liability which attaches by virtue of an agreement but which would not have attached in the absence of the said agreement.
Any liability for death, bodily injury, or damage to other property or any consequential loss of whatsoever nature arising directly or indirectly from the claim or event giving rise to a claim under this MOT Test Cover.
Cover under this MOT Test Cover may only be granted to individuals residing, or corporate bodies registered in the United Kingdom.
How to Claim under your MOT Test Cover
Simply take your vehicle to the nearest or supplying DS Retailer. The retailer will then take responsibility for establishing that the parts involved in the repair, deemed necessary by the “notification of refusal to issue a MOT Certificate” (VT30), are covered by this MOT Test Cover. The retailer will be responsible for obtaining prior authorisation from DS Extended Warranty Administration.
Claims telephone number: 0800 877 8455.
Important: No repair should commence until the DS Extended Warranty Administration Customer Services Department gives authorisation.
DS Extended Warranty Administration reserves the right to examine any vehicle and subject the parts being repaired to expert assessment before commencement of any repairs. It shall be clearly understood and agreed that in the event of any dispute arising as to the extent of the liability, the decision of the assessor shall be final and binding on both the Administrator and the MOT Cover Holder.
* In Northern Ireland your authorised DS repairer will carry out a pre-test MOT Inspection, and will submit your vehicle for the MOT test on your behalf.
Note: Claims must be received by DS Extended Warranty Administration within 30 days of the date of completion of the repairs, otherwise they cannot be accepted. Claims received beyond this date will be subject to review in terms of the reason for delay and it will be at the Administrator’s discretion to accept such claims.
