Need an NCT check or NCT Service in Kilbarrack? drop into or get in touch with us, we will give it the once over that it needs.

The National Car Test (NCT) is a preventative road safety measure that ensures vehicles using Irish roads are subject to a basic safety check at regular intervals. And sure enough, we all hate the thoughts of it. Drop into us for your NCT check or an NCT service.

As you will see there are quite a lot of things you need to have in order on the day you arrive at the test centre. A lot of these checks can be carried out by yourself however, the things you cannot see are often the things that get people caught out. Light calibration for example, this is a very common fail. Then there’s the other frequent fail stuff like pads, discs, leaks underneath etc.

We recommend having your car checked with us at least a couple of weeks before the test date.
