We offer the above complete pre NCT for €45.00. If repairs are required we will give you a written quotation and agree the price before any work is carried out. If in the unlikely event that your car fails the test, bring it to us and we will take the €45 off any repairs that are needed.
A pre NCT inspection does not guarantee a pass when you visit the centre, however it will significantly increase your chances of a pass.
Did you know if your engine is very low on oil or very overfilled the NCT will not do the smoke test which is a complete waste of your money.
Our advice is to go to one of Sweeneys garage’s and get a free inspection and we will pick up on this situation.
