Applus+ Car Testing Service Ltd, is responsible for the operation of the compulsory vehicle inspection programme in Ireland. This programme which falls under the directive 2009/40/EC is in its thirteenth year of operation and its primary aim is to improve road safety and enhance environmental protection by reducing harmful vehicles emissions in Ireland.

Ireland over the last number of years has witnessed a larger reliance on the use of mechanically propelled vehicles resulting in an increase in the number of vehicles on the road. The safety of vehicles has never been more in question in Ireland as it is today; therefore by bringing your vehicle in for its National Car Test we can provide a comprehensive diagnosis of the condition of your vehicle on the day of the test. To help you comply with this legal requirement, NCT have a dedicated network of 47 test centre's throughout the country. Please click here to find the test centre nearest you where you can have your vehicle inspected.

Applus+ operates this service on behalf of the Road Safety Authority and is committed to providing the highest standards in customer service, quality and test integrity. All of these elements are very important to the National Car Test and we take any feedback from the public or our staff very seriously, if you would like to report a concern regarding any aspect of the inspection process then please contact the relevant department by visiting our contact us page.

We are the only provider of the service nationwide and are totally independent of the motor industry and do not engage in garage service and repair activities. When having your vehicle inspected by the NCTS you will receive a fair, uniform and impartial service.
