As a small windscreen chip could cause windscreens to crack or lead to cars failing the MOT test, Autoglazing Windscreens are highly respected, and have fully trained technicians to assist with your repair. It is vitally important to repair windscreens to an acceptable standard before your MOT assessment.
Autoglazing can efficiently repair chipped windscreens to British standard BS AU242a:1998, making the repair with the surrounding glass almost invisible.
However, not all windscreen chips can be repaired - even by our expert team. Cracked windscreens or badly chipped windscreens will need to be replaced before an MOT inspection occurs please contact our UK wide call centre 0800 18-11-12
Driving without an MOT carries the risk that you will be fined up to £1,000, as well as potentially invalidating your motor insurance - itself considered a driving offence that will get you between six and eight penalty points.
You also need a valid MOT before you can tax your car if it is older than 3 years and you can be fined for driving an untaxed one.
So, you need a valid MOT to be able to drive your vehicle on the road (unless you are driving it to an MOT test centre for a pre-arranged test).
Once your vehicle is three years old it has to have an MOT test every year (certain vehicles such as taxis and ambulances have to be tested when they are one year old and vehicles registered prior to 01 January 1960 are exempt).
