Can my car fail an MOT because of the windscreen?
Yes as a windscreen is crucial to a driver's visibility, an MOT takes into consideration the state of your windscreen and the impact any damage may have on the driver's visibility.
As a small windscreen chip can easily develop into a crack, or result in a failed MOT, it's important you have your windscreen chip repaired before your MOT assessment.
Will my windscreen pass an MOT?
The condition of your windscreen is an important part of an MOT test, as reduced visibility whilst driving could put you and other drivers in danger.
For your car to pass an MOT, the windscreen must not have a chip, larger than 10mm, in line of your sight while driving. A chip larger than 40mm anywhere else on the windscreen can also result in a failed MOT.
If a testing station has notified you that the MOT has failed due to the condition of your windscreen, book an appointment online and we'll ensure you drive away with an MOT pass insight!
