    Sweet Jesus - are you prepared to decide on who provides your motor insurance based on a complimentary €2 piece of plastic.

    Mine came free with a replacement windscreen via autoglass. Probably not the most optimum way to upgrade to a 3 slot holder :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,686 ✭✭✭✭ punisher5112


    Sellotape or a cheaper version works too....

    Look at the Garda Twitter, one can even just use Crayola


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,707 ✭✭✭ User1998


    Stick them on the window with discarded chewing gum

    Yes good idea... I've just smashed mine right now

    Local FBD branch keeps a stack of them unattended on the waiting area table, could take a dozen if you wanted.

    I’m always surprised at the number of cars with either completely shagged looking disc holders , with the tax certs falling out, or ones plastered with a garage or insurance company’s name, or even how few people realize how much better a black disc holder looks against the average black dashboard. It’s bad enough that the government requires 3 stupid discs on our windscreens in the first place. Might as well make it look as inconspicuous as possible....

    The sooner they move away from certs in the window the better

    The UK have been without them for years, used to be quite happy with a full windscreen anytime I was importing a car to ireland from the UK

    Driving a car now that doesn't require anything in the windscreen and it's nice to say the least.

    Really by now ireland should be in a position to do away with them and have the gardai equiped to check cars, doing away with fraud and fake certs etc. Borrowing a friends cert etc.


    Anyway, €2 in dealz, €2-3 in a NCT center, insurance company , main dealers etc all have them !

    True but I got a black one with the car brand on it and it looks nice on the windscreen as it all blends :)

    Yeah, situation here is a joke. And don’t forget that learners have to a big stupid L sticker on their windscreen and back window. Significantly restricts visibility. And for what? Who knows whether it’s actually a learner driving the car?

    They believe now after a number of years millions is lost each year. It was originally done as a cost savings exercise..... Could you imagine here, the cops would have to actually work


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,966 ✭✭✭ Kopparberg Strawberry and Lime


    Fair point on the learner sticker, could be a fully licenced driver in the car during the week and teaching the learner on the weekends just ! Dunno how you get around that one though.
    Don't forget the N plates too


    The gardai are quick to show off on twitter though their newer computers built into their cars automatically reading plates and also their mobile app where they can input a reg etc.

    I remember hearing the same stories years ago of lads throwing in a different insurance disc into the window and getting away with it despite the incorrect reg. Going the digital way will stop a few bits of fraud and I think really should save money, shouldn't it save on admin etc not sending out certs etc ?

    Amazing another one from where I am now, I have a 2008 car and the service book is empty. scratched my head at that, instead there's a government website / database that gets updated everytime the car sees a garage, milages updated, services etc, even noticed my car 4 years ago went in for a puncture repair and they uploaded that information ! And milage !

    The irish do lack behind in many places it seems, and these wouldn't be unrealistic measures or very costly either

    Only 3?

    Some of us have to have a street parking permit and a work parking permit displayed also.


  • Registered Users Posts: 26,182 ✭✭✭✭ freshpopcorn


    I walk into the insurance office in my local town and just ask for one even tough I'm not insured with them.
    They generally hand one out.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,122 ✭✭✭ wandererz


    It's going to cost more than €2 in terms of storage space, CPU power and disk i/o just to host this silly thread in perpetuity.

    Tax and NCT should be replaced with a single disc which is replaced each time either one of them is renewed.
