Please make sure that:

Potential Problem More detail
The mods you are trying to use are being installed correctly, and in the correct folder, without extracting the mods' content from its ZIP. In Windows 10 in particular, a common mistake is placing the mods inside OneDrive/Documents/BeamNG.Drive, instead of User/Documents/BeamNG.Drive
The mods you are trying to install are actually compatible with the current version of the game. If a mod is too old, there is a chance it's outdated and no more compatible with your newer version.
