Vehicle Owners Reminded of 4 Month Test Extension and 16 NCT Test Centres re-opening on Monday 29 June

The National Car Testing Service (NCTS) has now updated all records for those customers’ vehicles that qualified for the 4 month test extension as announced by the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Mr Shane Ross in April.

A vehicle with a test due date on or after 28th March 2020 has now had their test date extended by 4 months, see example below

Original NCT Expiry Date New NCT Test Due Date
28th March 202028th July 2020
10th May 202010th September 2020
15th October 2020*15th February 2021

*Cars first registered on or after 1st August 2016 are not eligible for the 4 month extension.

Customers should note this change and are encouraged to check their new test due date on the Check NCT Due Date section on the NCTS website before booking their test.

NCTS are reminding customers that if they book a test that is more than 90 days earlier than the test due date, the test will be a voluntary early test and the NCT certificate issued will be valid for 1 or 2 years (depending on the age of the vehicle) from the date of the successful test.  NCTS are asking customers to note carefully the website messages they receive throughout the course of the booking process.

NCTS can now confirm that following the successful reopening of the first 19 centres, we intend on opening the remaining 28 centres on a phased basis. The reopening is subject to the Government’s approval of the start of phase 3 of the Road Map to ease Covid19 restrictions.
