Motor cars, motorcycles and light goods vehicles manufactured or registered before 1960 are exempt from the mandatory MOT test.

Driver & Vehicle Agency (DVA) offers tests on a voluntary basis, but only at the request of the vehicle owner.

Buses, taxis, trailers and other vehicles must also be tested.

Once logged, this allows police who check a car’s licence plate – often using mobile squad car cameras – to know whether or not it is ‘street legal.’ Proof of a Mo T test pass is also required when drivers tax their vehicle.

Not exactly ideal if your certificate is fast approaching its expiry date. News of the backlogs was put to the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Paschal Donohoe, last week.

I am advised that any car owner will receive an NCT appointment within 28 days.Under the new rules, an NCT may now be undertaken up to 90 days in advance of the test due date without affecting the expiry date of the new certificate.
