Under the Road Safety Authority Act 2006 (Conferral of Functions) Order 2006 (S.I. No. 477 of 2006) the Road Safety Authority has responsibility for the delivery of the National Car Test (NCT).

I have referred the Deputies’ questions to the Road Safety Authority for direct reply. They should advise my private office if they do not receive a reply within 10 working days.
