The NCT test is mandatory for cars more than three years old. Cars aged between four and 10 years must undergo the test every two years, while older cars are required to undergo the test annually.
The biggest reason for failing was an issue with the front suspension, followed by tyre condition, brake lines/hoses, stop lamps and steering linkage.
Clarkes Tyres offer NCT preparation which includes inspection of the following:
- Wheel Alignment
- Light Focusing
- Tyre Condition (including Spare Wheel)
- Headlight & Taillight Bulbs
- Fluid Levels

We cannot give any guarantee that you will pass your NCT after an inspection at Clarkes Tyres, but having your car checked in advance of a test greatly increases a pass rate.
