Renmore Motors do a full Pre-NCT check on your car and will do whatever work that needs to be done for it to pass. 

Preparing your car for an NCT is straight forward, please see a common check list that we have put together for your benefit. 

  1. Your car has adequate oil and water.
  2. The boot is empty and your vehicle is clear of all valuables and personal belongings.
  3. The vehicle is reasonably clean (especially the underbody).
  4. The wheel hubcaps are removed (only in the case where wheel nuts are not visible) and the tyres are inflated to the correct pressure.
  5. The engine is in a fit state to be tested e.g. cam belt / timing belt. You may be asked to sign a disclaimer at the test centre.
  6. All seat belts and clips are fully visible (including rear).
  7. We also recommend that you have your lights checked and set prior to the NCT.
  8. Your Vehicle Registration Book, Registration Certificate or Licensing Certificate is with you when you arrive at the test centre.
  9. You bring identification (driving licence) with you on the day of the test. The person who brings the car for inspection brings their identification with them (driving licence) as failure to provide the required identification will result in the vehicle not being issued an NCT certificate at the time of testing
  10. You have your test fee of €55.00, plus any cancellation fee (if applicable) payable by cash, laser card and all major credit cards (excluding American Express).
  11. Your vehicle is at a normal operating temperature prior to arriving at the test centre for inspection
  12. Your registration plates comply with current regulations
