NCT First Time Pass


If you fail, we’ll pay*

At BestDrive by Continental, we’re so confident that your car will pass after our First Time Pass services, that we will pay your retest fee if you fail. To begin with, we give your car a basic service to ensure your engine, brakes, and tyres are in optimum condition. We then check your car from headlight to tail-light, from the tyres up, paying particular attention to the things that have failed cars most frequently in the last year.

The NCT may seem inconvenient but it’s good for us all. Safer cars mean safer roads. Besides, failing to display a valid NCT certificate can mean a €1,500 fine, 5 penalty points and a surcharge on your insurance.
