Default Mirror question

Do mirrors have to be 'E' marked for SVA?

I am looking to buy a set of motorcycle mirrors. They are the same as OEM, but are aftermarket ones and aren't 'E' marked.

I don't fancy buying a set for SVA then one to use after.

Hi mate.

Not sure. I'll have a look at my mirrors which I got from Marlin tomorrow if that's OK re "E" mark? Only cheap as well.

Also plan on getting new mirrors tomorrow if they fit. So if you want, depending on tomorrow, you could look at getting mine. If that's any help.

By the way. So many people getting ready. I think we all need to meet up.

As long as the mirrors fold back on impact from the front, they are OK.
Mine are motor bike mirrors and passed
Cheers

I was talking to the SVA guy when mine was getting done. Where the mirrors are located, even if the mirror did not fold back, he would have passed it. In his opinion, if a person hit the mirror, the fibreglass body would give and break away with the mirror. Only his opinion though.

Thanks for the response guys.

Seems to be differing opinions.

Might give Exeter centre a call.

They didn't check mine for anything other than visible angles.
