Passing the NCt

Postby Dan » Sun Apr 22, 2007 9:22 pm

So lads i have my NCT in the morning, jusr have a conern about my boot. I have a stealth sub box and 2 amps in there. reading the NCT rules, it says your boot must be empty? Does this just apply to moveable stuff etc? I could take it out but would prefer not to. Anyone have any suggestions? What else shoudl i check apart from all the obvious stuff listed on their site? Anyone ever fail for something really stupid?

Boot has to be empty in order that they can check the spare....

check ... windscreen wipers, horn, tyre thread depth.... take the long route to the center to make sure the engine is nice and warm...

Dont bother taking it out. I had my last two cars full with subs and amps and once they could get at the spare there was no problem. passed no problem. The only thing the check is how well its wired
