Out of curiosity, where your calipers painted a different colour rather than silver or black? If so then it might have stood out more to the tester.

I think it's only right that vintage cars are tested... How does it make any sense that oh that car is 30 years old so the brakes and everything are definitely going to be fine


a lot of 30 year old cars are not in daily use though.... because insurance companies don't want to insure them as a daily vehicle, so paying to have you car tested so you can take it to a show is just a money racket imo.. and they are usually kept to a high standard mechanically lol

i have mixed opinions on it to be honest. like if its only been drivin a few times a year its not gunna fail a test so shouldnt be an issue and you would pay 50 euro once a year if it ment keepin your car on the road. but for ones driven daily its only fair that there tested as there as much of a liability as any other car when they use the road daily. its simple use once or twice= wont fail test. use daily= could be probloms if not tested and cause an accident that probly could of been prevented ? not everyone that drives old cars look after them alot drive them because there cheaper than mordern or modernish cars think about it

not really cheaper though if driven daily, part breaks, can't get new, have the hassle of going second hand and can't find them.... anyway this is pointless talking about as it doesn't really have a lot to do with the original post lol

in fairness its not cheaper but it is safer if it is in daily use and yea true lol

If your saying vintage cars should be tested its goin to cause huge hassle and is completely a money racket
In the case of my fathers Escort it didn't even come with back seat belts from the factory not to mind testing emissions and that if this does come in it's going to kill what people really love about vintage cars by making it harder and harder to have them

I know myself that people don't drive older cars because they are cheaper and you don't have to nct
There might be a rare case but as anyone who owns a vintage car knows there a pain in the arse to run not exactly the easiest or most comfortable to drive and definitely not easy to get parts for and that is why people have them as special cars to take out of a Sunday or that I think if they now have to be ncted it takes the fun out of it really you probably won't see as many on the road either

So got the nct fail sheet with the Modifications Report -Where Required (62) under Aural/Visual Defects.

Judging from the posts on here, it is because of my AM steering wheel so I got an OEM one.

My Q is... if this item is on your fail sheet but you turn up for the re-test with a stock steering wheel put back on instead of the mods report, is that an OK then?

PASSED!! WOHOOO cheers cheers cheers band band cherry

As per the latest NCT guidelines, engine conversions are technically not covered. Item 62 of the NCT Manual 2014 lists the following: Chassis/Cabin/Body Work, Brakes, Suspension, Seats/Airbags/Other Safety Features.

But there is also the last point under this list which is: any modification which the tester "deems" to be "unsafe" - which is the clause that gives the tester the power needed to basically fail you for whatever it is.

But in this first phase they are mainly concentrating on steering and seats.

But also, the way it is with testers remains the same - it is still up to who you get. In my case for example I was failed on the steering wheel, but on the retest was told by them that actually if it wasn't modified since your last NCT then it doesn't need a Mods Report and should've passed in the first place. So they themselves don't even know what the hell actually are the right guidelines.
