CRITICAL VISION AREA (CVA)

The CVA is the shaded area below in the diagram. It's an area 150mm either side of the centre of the steering wheel (or driver's seat), 90mm from the top of the windscreen and 65mm from the bottom of the windscreen. WOF & COF inspections are more strict on windscreen repairs inside the CVA. If you're not sure whether a chip in the CVA can be repaired, call ASTROFIX now to arrange an inspection.
