    Hi!
    We booked our NCT and can't find the logbook.
    Is it true that they will put the car through the test but won't give you the cert of you pass or do they refuse to carry out the test?
    If they do put it through the test do they give you the fail sheet?
    Thanks in advance!

    They may fail you for having no VRC/logbook without doing the test.
    You can apply for a duplicate VRC from your local motor tax office - https://www.motortax.ie/OMT/pdf/RF134_en.pdf

    BTB - Be sure to hit the 'Thanks' button please.

    I believe they will test it but won't issue the cert till you produce the log book

    Have NCTed both my car & the wife's without the log book, no questions asked.

    I forgot it once, they asked for it and I said I didn't have it - but they still let me through the test. I guess it's up to their discretion.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,693 ✭✭✭ dodzy


    Not needed. Just the DL for the person bringing the car and payment. That's it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,976 ✭✭✭✭ _Brian


    I tested my jeep and they held the cert until I got a replacement out.


  • Registered Users Posts: 26,552 ✭✭✭✭ freshpopcorn


    We found it. It would be great if people didn't put things a hide!

    Glad you found it.

    To settle the debate, it is asked for by NCT FAQ but the tester/receptionist might let you off.
    Don't forget to bring your vehicle registration book, registration certificate or licensing certificate and your test fee!
    https://www.ncts.ie/faq/
    Or they may hold the cert until you produce.



    Just because someone got let off once doesn't mean everyone will be let off all the time :D

    I have to ask these questions which are a little off thread

    Why do they require you to have the log book , but really why do they require you to have ID ?

    It's the car being tested so they do they need to know who you are ?


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,127 ✭✭✭ cruizer101


    I havn't been asked for the log book the last 4 or 5 times I've gone.
    I don't really see the point, are there people robbing cars and NCT'ing them :confused::pac:


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,182 ✭✭✭ Davidth88


    Doing nct right now and I was asked for log book


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,699 ✭✭✭ Cheensbo


    Not been asked for the VLC the last 5 or 6 times I've brought cars for nct but I always bring it anyway, as I have been asked before for it.

    Unless it's lost, it's hardly an inconvenience...


  • Registered Users Posts: 135 ✭✭ bikini widow


    have mine today and no log book.  really hope not asked.

    Had my NCT a few days ago and they don't seem to look for the logbook anymore.


  • Registered Users Posts: 26,552 ✭✭✭✭ freshpopcorn


    I started this thread last year and now I'm thinking where's the log book again for the NCT.

    Drivers license is all you need.

    I started this thread last year and now I'm thinking where's the log book again for the NCT.

    It's likely that it isn't in the same place as last year because you would have thought "where shall we put this for safety and ease of finding"

    Good luck on the hunt :)

    Not true, Ive been twice this year in Ballymun and asked for the log book.

    Wasn't asked last year though, depends on the person at the desk on the day.

    I was never asked to produce logbook during NCT.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,585 ✭✭✭ honda boi


    Depends who's behind the desk.
    The lad I got didn't ask for anything just the keys.
    While the person after me was asked for everything,licence, logbook,keys what they had for breakfast: p!!


  • Registered Users, Subscribers Posts: 13,028 ✭✭✭✭ antodeco


    I always get asked for DL, log book and the car key to be removed from the bunch of keys. I normally do anyway as there's about 10 car keys on it haha


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,283 ✭✭✭ millington


    Haven't been asked for a logbook in about 6 years and I NCT about 10 cars a year

    You can get lucky and not get asked, but it is a requirement so see if you can find it, as my post from last year. It is an important document.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,585 ✭✭✭ honda boi


    If they ask for it and you don't have it what's the outcome? Won't test or test and you don't get the pass cert?

    You will still pass without it, you are supposed to be able to proceduce a VLC if required but if you don’t they can’t fail you for it.
