Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
1009. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the position regarding persons who may have failed to renew their NCT certification when it expired in 2019 and now cannot renew the certification of the car; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [6203/20]
It is an offence under section 18(1) of the Road Traffic Act 1961 to use a vehicle in a public place without a valid NCT certificate.
My officials and the Road Safety Authority are currently examining the possibility of resuming NCT services in light of the roadmap and the return to work protocols published by government and I hope to make a statement on this matter in the coming weeks.
