Funny enough I had to pass something with non functional shock absorbers the other week (no cracked windscreen)!

I think you are being a bit harsh there on the number plate Kev.

Indeed it did, thats why I failed it. Not as life threatening as say an air freshener hanging from the interior mirror.

It could be argued that any simple crack is immaterial, even if it goes from one side of the screen to the other at eye level.

To clarify, I'd say it was less dangerous than four inoperative shock absorbers, but more dangerous than a 6mm margin on a registration plate.

Hope this helps.

The recent SN made it difficult to use the rfr covering the view some vts would now pass most crack's.
Personally I would probably have p&a as you have done as the recent SN has made the rfr difficult to use.

I'll take the disc out, leave the holder in place & use it to display my parking permit.
:P

Hi everyone.
We tested a Nemo van today with a crack in the nearside lower screen area.
The crack was in the drivers view, and the swept area, and more than 40 mm long.
We failed the van using the correct RFR etc.

The van was represented 10 mins later by the owner, with a tax disc holder over the crack, covering it entirely, there was an expred tax disc in the holder.

I had to pass and advise as I could no longer see the crack in the swept area.

Are tax discs going to removed from the exemption in the RFR's?

All thoughts welcomed.

Kev.
