OP, do you have a copy of the emails when you declared the car off the road? This might show that the car was not being used during this time, and then you can show where it was taxed from. Again, obviously all at your own risk, however, proof it was declared off the road might just add an extra arrow to your bow!

Heard that insurers won’t renew insurance if your nct has expired and you can’t get it done. Very unlucky to have both expiring close togethrr

I have never been asked about the NCT from an insurance company.

Me neither, I was just thinking that, but that’s what I was told. Perhaps the person concerned is very fussy and brought it up instead of saying nothing.

One thing that would worry me is if you check this thread

https://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/show...49778&page=488

Most cars confiscated recently are for a number of factors not just one. But one of the factors has been no NCT.

In fairness, the Gardai normally use NCT against you if you're acting the bollOx!

True but that twitter account is also making it clear that they consider no NCT a serious offence, if they didn't they wouldn't mention it so frequently.

Yeah I’m not too sure what to do, I changed the oil etc myself but had a mechanic look at it aswell and he reckons it’ll 100% pass when the time comes, car is a 06 focus and not worth anything. Maybe I’ll take chance but still I don’t want to get myself in trouble!

Probably fine with most Guards but what if you come accross an awkard one? No NCT means a heafty points penalty.
I’m between two even narrower stools....

I’ve a document in the glovebox showing an incomplete, with everything passed bar the underbody inspection. I also have a printout of the booking for the underbody on the day after the centres closed down.

I wonder where I’d stand...

Yes I’m sure I have a screenshot of it somewhere. I must root it out thanks.

Dunno. If you met the wrong guard having the wrong grumpy day....

I don’t have a valid NCT. All I have is documentation supporting my claim to be a fine upstanding citizen.

True.. some are grand some are pricks.. I’m only going to work and back which is about 6 miles away but they have had checkpoints on the way nearly everyday I’ve just been lucky they’ve not been there when I have..
