Windows, windscreens, mirrors and lenses

Windscreens may collect stone chips through normal usage, however if the number and size exceed that shown in the diagram the screen should be repaired or replaced as part of routine maintenance

Other windows should be free of cracks, scratches and operate correctly if opening

Lamp lenses, both glass and plastic, should be free of any significant cracks and have no evidence of water ingress; some surface scratching and very minor cracks may be acceptable

Mirrors should be complete, the glass untracked and giving an adequate view of the reflected area. Some minor deterioration of the reflected surface may be acceptable. Backing covers and mountings should be free of damage

Electrically heated and operated mirrors should all operate correctly

Windscreens should be free of cracks

In Zone A

One chip provided it is contained within a I Omm circle

In Zone B

Two chips provided each are contained within a I Omm circle and they are not immediately adjacent

In Zone C

Three chips provided each are contained within a 15mm circle and are not in a close cluster. Concentrated scratching on a windscreen such as caused by the use of a defective wiper blade is not acceptable An 'invisible' or barely detectable repair to a screen, finished flush with the surrounding glass, is acceptable in any zone
