The windscreen must be free from cracks and fractures within the drivers field of vision as displayed on the diagram. It acceptable to have small stone chips but having these repaired when they are small will avoid later failures when the chips spread.
Small chips and cracks can be enlarged when the screen is stressed if the car goes over bumps etc.
Rear view mirrors must be secure and intact. All rear view mirrors must be adjustable. There must be at least ONE rear view mirror.
Mirrors must show a clear view of the rear view. The MOT tester will use your rear view mirrors to check the operation of the rear lights during the test
Not all mirrors on all vehicles are subject to Test, depending on the age of the vehicle. Those mirrors which must be checked must be:
• Visible from the drivers seat
• Not distorted or damaged so as to seriously impair the drivers view to the rear.
