Written answers (Question to Transport)

The Road Safety Authority has advised that the National Car Testing Service has put in place a range of measures to ensure that they are fully compliant with health and safety guidelines and public health advice. Vulnerable drivers and those with an underlying illness are requested not to attend in person and instead organise for someone else to present their vehicle where possible.

Rearrangement and cancellation fees do not apply to those drivers making an alternative appointment and those who are more vulnerable are advised to contact the NCTS on 01 4135992 (Monday to Friday) to arrange an alternative appointment.
