Until now it was not mandatory for motorbikes in Ireland to go through a regimental road test like the NCT that is required for cars. Another change for our Irish roads! As of 2016 motorbikes will also have to undertake a national road test.

So it’s time to get checking those pipes, brakes and tyres and ensure your bike really is roadworthy. They’re now on a par with the car and its’ NCT. Happy motoring all!
