Car Test Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
The National Car Test (Irish: An tSeirbhís Náisiúnta Tástála Carranna; abbreviated NCT) is a roadworthiness test, which all cars in Ireland must undergo. Following a tender process, the Road Safety Authority awarded the National Car Testing Service contract for the operation of the vehicle inspection service in the Republic of Ireland to Applus.
Mick McCaffrey for The Independent Ireland mentioned NCT mechanic's test scam may see cars re-checked, "THOUSANDS of cars that have passed the National Car Test may now have to be re-tested after an NCT mechanic was suspended on suspicion of improperly passing vehicles.
The mechanic, based at the Naas test depot, was suspended two weeks ago after NCT bosses hired a private detective to investigate the suspected scam.
The staff member is thought to have carried out incomplete tests on vehicles and issued certificates for cars which did not even show up for re-tests."
