    The NCT was introduced on 4th January 2000 complying with the EU Directive, which makes car testing compulsory in EU member states. The Directive is aimed primarily at improving road safety and enhancing environmental protection. NCTS is operating this service on behalf of the Government and is committed to providing the highest standards of customer service.


    Our approach to NCT testing is designed to minimise the cost to you. Rather than carrying out potentially unnecessary work on your car in advance of the NCT, we recommend a three stage approach.

    • When you book  your car with Car Service Ireland for a pre NCT check We will inspect your car thoroughly and carry out a pre NCT checklist.
    • If there are defects in the vehicle we put a quotation in place to make the repairs and contact the customer. At that point its up to the customer to make the decision weather they wish to repair the vehicle or bring it for its NCT first.
    • If you fail on a specific item, we will then repair that item as detailed by the NCT. This approach is designed to avoid speculative expenditure on work that is not necessary.
