    I just booked my car in for its NCT next month. It should pass no problem but I have one concern about two very small chips in the front windscreen. Is a chipped windscreen a failure on the NCT?

    It depends on the size and length of the chips and the distance from each other.

    There both very small, ones just left of my eyeline when driving and the others on the bottom on the passengers side. I dont think they should be a problem but might look into getting them fixed if i can.

    You'll be fine.

    The windscreen is divided into zones for the NCT. The area in front of the driver is zone A. You are permitted to have up to 2 chips here provided that they are less than 10mm in diameter and 100mm apart.

    You're insurance may cover you for a new windscreen anyway. ;)

    Dont think they will, I'm fully comp but with Quinn (Budget Airlines) Direct didnt get windscreen cover as it was €200/300 extra on the premium!
