Traffic Jam

The Tincar’s NCT Certificate has expired.

As has been well advertised, from May 1st we can get 5 penalty points for driving without an NCT Cert. That’s because, as we all know, not having a little piece of paper stuck on your windscreen is two-and-a-half times more dangerous than driving without a seat-belt, using a mobile while driving or failing to obey traffic lights, all of which carry two points.

Anyway, we have now been given a date for our NCT test.

It’s on September 16th.

    I faled mine, have to pay 200 euro for a new brake thingy whatsit, and I didn’t ring back to rebook in time so I’m going to have to pay another full fifty for the retest.

    So all in all, this NCT will have cost me 460 for the service and check, 200 for panel beating/spraying, 100 for two tests and 200 for the new part.

    A grand.

    Ah well, at least I eluded capture for the last two years. Still. It would have cost less to keep it maintained, I suppose.
