My car has a sunstrip on the windscreen that was an NCT fail. The fail sheet said obstruction inside wiped area, so if I put on wipers that wipe up to just under the sunstrip will it still pass?

Car booked in for first NCT on 26 July in Cahir. Registration book in my late wife's name. Is this ok or do I need to re-register prior to NCT? If so do I need to cancel my NCT date, re-register and re-book?

My car has one year on its NCT, but is not damaged and will be scrapped. Can I transfer the NCT or get money back? It's a 2003 Citroen Xsara 1.4.
Thanks a lot in a advance!

I bought a car from a garage and they say it has a one-year NCT on it, though they had to register the new number plate from UK to an Irish one and told me the NCT disc would be sent to me. I have taxed and insured the car, but no NCT disc has arrived; what should I do?

The glow plugs on my diesel Mercedes are poor and it will not start easy when it's hot; with an NCT due in a month's time I worry it may fail due to the heat plugs. Will it?

I had my car serviced in November with four new tyres and is now due for NCT in April, it is a 1999 Toyota Avensis. Should I just do the test and fix anything that fails if it fails? Car is serviced every year.
