The dreaded N.C.T

The National car test, Taxis must undergo this fairly rigorous test every year, pretty much every aspect of the cab is checked using high tech testing equipment.

My poor old banger was checked this morning.....result;

Two new brake hoses
New Bushing for front nearside wishbone
New CV boot front nearside
Dipped beams need to be adjusted upwards
Battery mounting needs to be tightened up
Rear nearside lighting assembly needs to be replaced (cracked)
Weld required in latch mechanism for the bonnet release

Left it with my mechanic, back for a re-check next Tuesday.

You'd swear it was a bloody death trap! it was only serviced two weeks ago!
