50% Failure at NCT

Approx 50% of all cars that fail the NCT test, do so by failing on incorrect headlight aim.

What is a Headlight Alignment Service?

At MK Tyres we have installed the same equipment as the test centres to ensure that when we correct your headlight alignment, you will pass the test. What’s more, we will check your alignment for free. We will only impose a charge if you require us to correct the headlight alignment. Call in at MK Tryes Ardee to get your headlight alignment done today.

At MK Tyres we align headlights to original equipment specifications. Headlamp beams are tested as part of your NCT test. Ensuring your headlights are aligned correctly is beneficial for the driver and prevents dazzling of other road users.

Headlamp Alignment is one of the biggest causes of NCT failure – it costs less to have it checked than a retest fee.

If you have any questions on this process or would like help booking, send us a message or call (087) 38 74 992.


Advantages of Headlight Alignment

  • It is important to ensure that your headlights are correctly aligned, both for your own safety and the safety of other road users.
  • If set too high, headlights will dazzle oncoming drivers and if set too low, they will be ineffectual.
  • Today there is still a high NCT fail rate on Headlight Alignment.
