    I have a big crack in my windscreen top of drivers side, here is how I got away with it

    1. tighten up the sun visor so its stuck in the down position hiding the crack
    2. make sure the windscreen is real dirty, this will help hide the crack
    3. Check the weather forecast and try to get an inspection on a dark rainy day
    4. In addition to above try to get an inspection late on a Friday arvo, before a long weekend is best as the mechanic will be keen to knock off and in a hurry.
    5. if you have a wife and kid take them with you make sure you are both shabbily dressed but don't look like a dole bludger , a fluro safety vest will show you are a worker

    good luck ;)

    When we had the T3, there was a small crack in the windscreen. prolly about 4 inches long, i thought i might be in trouble when went for rego change over check, but no, as it was down the bottom the bloke said it cant go any further so all is safe. But if needed be, i would have replaced it asap, i believe in safety.

    Have the rego papers sitting on the front seat on top of a carton of Crown Lager, that should work.;)

    Or here's a funny thing....... you could just fix it and pass on merit and enjoy SAFE driving for years to come.....

    Its not as if most car insurance companies dont have free screen replacement in their policies these days...

    It would also be a good opportunity to attend to the rust that lies hidden under the windscreen seal.

    As said above, you think its cool to slip one by the inspector but what happens when you hit a pot hole and the windscreen shatters and cuts you and the passenger?

    Safety is always paramount when families are involved, as lakepipes said, 99% of insurance companies offer a free windscreen every year.
