Why is it important to know a vehicle has passed an NCT?

In 2015, 5,432 cars failed under the heading ‘Fail Dangerous’ and a huge 756,422 were failed as ‘Fail Refusal’.

The Main failure items for 2015 were:

  1. Front Suspension.
  2. Brake Line / Hoses.
  3. Headlamp Aim.
  4. Tyre Condition.
  5. Stop Lamps.

Taking into consideration the top reasons for failure in 2015, it’s imperative that when buying a used car, it has a valid NCT. Data gathered from a study My Vehicle ran shows that from the reports we ran on cars, 20.3% cars had invalid NCT's.

It’s also important to be aware of the increase of Fake NCT Certificates on our roads. With a MyVehicle.ie report, you can check to see if the car has a valid NCT Certificate.
