NCT Pre Test

NCT Pre-Test

A recent change in legislation means that it is now the law to have a valid NCT certificate with any car over 4 years old or 5 penalty points may be awarded against the owner. The government has initiated a dedicated website to help inform the public of the changes to the penalty points system. It lists the 31 new offences as well as the 4 existing ones.

We at Cavanaghs have a tailor-made NCT Pre Test designed to highlight the most common potential NCT fail points.

Our complete NCT Pre Test is a Health check on your vehicle that will highlight any areas in need of repair in order to pass the NCT test. At a cost of just €49.00, this check covers the most common NCT fail points and ensures that your car will be right on the day. Items covered include:

  • Rolling Road check
  • Focus Lights
  • Emmissions Levels
  • Brake Pads & Tyre thread depth

If any further areas are in need of repair they will be brought to your attention and an estimate given prior to any work being carried out.

To book-in for your €49.00 NCT Pre-test simply contact Breda at our Service Desk on Call-save 1850 500 300 or fill out our online form via the Book a service quicklink which appears on the service home page.
