Avoiding MOT Failure

Windscreen & Mirrors

The windscreen must be free from cracks and fractures within the drivers field of vision as displayed on the right hand diagram. It acceptable to have small stone chips but having these repaired when they are small will avoid later Windscreen
failures when the chips spread. Small chips and cracks can be enlarged when the screen is stressed if the car goes over bumps etc.
Mirrors
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.
