NCTS Update Re: Vehicle Inspection Lifts
NCTS can confirm that we have now recommenced underbody inspections in a small number of centres nationwide. The reinstated vehicle inspection lifts will only be used for those drivers who are due to undergo a Driving Test shortly, Taxi Drivers and those due for retest.
Those centres where underbody inspections have recommenced are:
Deansgrange (South Dublin)
We would like to advise that this does not mean that full test inspections are available to all other customers at this time.
We expect to be in a position to reinstate more vehicle inspection lifts across the network and more information will be provided on this over the coming days.
All customers should continue to book and turn up for their NCT as normal. The test will be completed with the omission of the underbody inspection, however if the vehicle fails on another element of the test, they must present their vehicle for retest as normal.
All vehicle owners are reminded that the roadworthiness of their vehicle is their responsibility at all times. In addition, motorists are being advised to keep a copy of their Vehicle Inspection Report with them in order to present it to a member of An Garda Síochána, if required.
Once again, NCTS would like to apologise to all our customers for this inconvenience and we are endeavouring to restore normal service as soon as possible.
Further updates will be provided over the coming days.”
