To book, rebook or cancel your NCT booking online you need car registration number and date of first registration.

Both those can be read when looking at the car.
Reg is obvious, and first registration date in vast majority of cases can be read from NCT disc.

Generally speaking that means, that malicious neighbour can easily cancel my NCT booking just a day before my test, making me liable for cancallation charges.

Don't you think there should be something done about it?

Neighbour musn't have much to do if they are going online on NCT the whole time seeing if they can cancel your test

You'd have to check every day for 3 months leading up to the NCT renewal date to check when they've booked it for, then wait until right before it and cancel. I'm sure people have better things to be doing, tbh.

Hmmm... They could book without your knowledge and then cancel it without you ever knowing!

Not really. I've never heard about this being misused, and even if it was occasionally it's hardly worth changing the system for.

Stalker types can get people's names from those details off the NCT system too, not good really.

You really think that ability to login into someone account on NCT booking website by just knowing the details which are displayed to public on every car is not a problem?
I'd say there's no need for any major change of system.
Just something different than first registration date would be nice (like any info from reg cert instead of something which is available to public on discs).

Does the NCT booking site show your address as well, or is that just the motortax.ie site?

LOL, I know there's a long waiting list for tests and all, but cancelling your neighbour's one, just so you can get yours done ?

Wow, that is a new low.

Or, an amazing new form of OCD.....

Lads, I LOLLED at ASOT's post too, but the OP has a point. The security of the booking system of the NCT was engineered by an imbecile.

Plenty of other imbeciles made other rules in this country too. Like the one who declared that you are legally ok to drive a car when you have just failed your driving test (and have proven you are incapable of safely driving a car)

Too tired to make this into a proper rant about imbecilities in the Irish legal system...

Whats the fee for cancelling?
That could be a really obnoxious prank
