NCT & CVRT Preparation

The National Car Test (NCT) and the Commercial Vehicle Roadworthiness Test (CVRT) are checks confirming vehicles satisfy basic safety requirements.

An NCT assesses components which are visible and accessible. It does not replace or intend to replace the vehicle owner’s responsibility to ensure a car or van is roadworthy at all times, or advise on any routine maintenance required. Any defects found must be repaired and the car must pass a re-test before the vehicle’s owner will be issued with an NCT Certificate. NCT checks are required every 2 years for vehicles less than 10 years old, and annually for vehicles aged 10 years or older.

The CVRT is for commercial vehicles, buses with more than eight passenger seats and ambulances over one year old, and comprises the same assessments and checks carried out during an NCT, but also a host of other assessments and checks required on multi-passenger vehicles.
