The National Car Test (NCT) is carried out for the Government by the National Car Testing Service Ltd (NCTS). The NCT conducts car (EU Category M1) roadworthiness testing.

All goods vehicles (EU Category N) must complete an annual roadworthiness test in a Commercial Vehicle Test Centre, regardless of how the vehicle is taxed. The motor tax category of a vehicle has no bearing on how the vehicle must be tested.
