Did you get through to SGS, Applus+ or NTA, Octy?

I don't know Rat to be honest ...don't know wer I got number from but the operator was going tru the process of booking the taxi test then aborted wen I told her / or she told me me nct was overdue a month
I've just looked at me ph records
014135960 is the phone number I phoned Cople minutes before that .....
Maybe I'm gettin mixed up wit the numbers but one them was the taxi licence test ....
I'm gettin bit confused lately ...tink its apathy , dementia or sumtin ...I used to be ocd bout these tings but lately I'm losing interest ... ::sleep

Me too..same number.

They do ask a lot of unnecessary questions which doesn't help the wait times on the phone.

Yes I had it ready but it didn't seem to shorten the call that much.

45 mins to get a reply at 10.15 this Monday am. Earliest booking fo Dublin next Monday, Galway next Thursday, took Kilkenny for 11.25am tomorrow Tuesday, either that or miss this big weekend after almost 6 weeks no work.
I had the same problem a few years back after my car was repaired after a long absence, had to travel to Limerick next day or wait a week fer a Cork appointment.

Overall I have found the booking line to be very helpful if you are stuck but willing to travel.

Rest easy about the NCT.

Almost 3,600 issued with penalty points for driving without valid NCT cert in 2022

Almost 3,600 people received penalty points for driving a car without a valid NCT cert in 2022.

BUT

The figure represents a slight drop from 2021, when 3,730 people were issued with penalty points.

AND TO PUT IT INTO PERSPECTIVE

Over 18,700 people got penalty points for holding a mobile phone while driving last year.
