    Repairs are possible in this area, however caution must be expressed if the repair is in the driver's immediate area of vision because it may still fail an MOT.

If the driver’s vision is impaired due to a chip or crack in their eyeline, the damage may be repaired if the diameter does not exceed 10mm. If the damage is more than 10mm, the entire windscreen will need to be replaced. Rely on us for your windscreen repair and replacement needs, where safety and quality are our top priorities
