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 www.penaltypoints.ie 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. This check covers the most common NCT fail points and ensures that your car will be right on the day. Items covered include:

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 NCT Pre-test simply contact our Service Desk on Call 063 30300 (Option 3) or fill out our online form via the Book a service  which appears on the service home page.

We can also arrange to book your car in, pick it up (within a reasonable distance of Charleville), have the test carried out at the local test centre, and drop it back to your home when complete. If you want to avail of this service please ask at reception or call our dedicated Service Hotline.
