The five main reasons why cars fail the NCT test
This will come in handy for your next test.
The NCT is a complete pain in the arse but it's a must if you want to drive (legally) on Irish roads.
The test always throws up the dilemma whether to service your car and test it, or do the test, find out what's wrong, service it and re-test it.
The latest information from the NCT website might help because they've revealed the five most common problems people encounter when testing their car.
Last year, the main failures were:
- Front suspension
- Tyre condition
- Headlamp aim
- Brake line/hoses
- Stop lamps
