Take the uncertainty out of your NCT test by making a booking in any of our locations nationwide for our NCT First Time Pass Package*!
Since the introduction of the NCT in 2000, the Road Safety Authority has continued to make significant changes to the complexity of the test, which has led to quite stable failure rates in a number of motor categories. At the start of 2020 exactly 50% of cars fail the test when present in the approved test centre (Fail and fail dangerous). (Source NCTS.ie – January 2020)
To increase your chance of passing the test, all you have to do is to select our NCT FIRST TIME PASS PACKAGE .. and it applies for “any car” and “any time” you have to do the NCT.
Our NCT First Time Pass Package includes a Basic service and a Headlight alignment plus a series of checks for common NCT failures, and it will cost from €115 for the full package depending on the cc of the car.
If at the end of the NCT First Time Pass service we tell you you’ll pass, and if you don’t, we will pay your €28 NCT retest fee.*
BestDrive by Continental will help you by offering to pay for the re-test fee which is currently €28, if you get ALL of the failure work that has been identified by the NCT centre (on their official NCT sheet) as the cause of recent NCT test failure, carried out in our local branch*.

If one of our qualified technical staff should identify some item(s) that require adjustment, repair or replacement in order to pass the NCT, we will issue you with a competitive quote for any work required and advise you of the time it will take to complete.
* The value of the re-test will be deducted from the total bill once the value of the repairs is over €100.00. Terms and conditions apply.
* The cost of the First Time Pass is determined by the engine cc of the car. For vehicles up to 1499cc it is €115, from 1500cc to 2499cc it is €138.00 and for vehicles over 2500cc or that required special oils (other than 5W30 or 10W40) the cost will be €170.00
