Back to Tips Index | Migun (Protective Windows and Windscreen) on your car
Firstly, your rights: Every citizen has the right for one time Migun on his/her car.
This Migun can be replaced under the following conditions: failing the yearly test because of scratched windows or on the basis of an assessor’s report.
According to the Licensing Department, the following are the criteria for obtaining Migun:
- The car must be used for family and personal reasons
(i.e. a car used
solely for business does not qualify)
- Each citizen is entitled to Migun for one car. (In a case of
having two cars, the second car should be registered under the other
- The new windows/windscreen became the property of the owner of
car and the regular windows remain with the installer. Replacing Migun with regular windows is at the expense of car owner.
- If you buy a new car within 2 to 3 years from the original or replacement Migun, the refund is only 50 %. In other words, each citizen is entitled to full, new Migun every 3 years (or, see#2).
- You should insure the protective windows – the government will only replace them once a year in case of theft or accidental damage. (The cost is minimal with most insurance companies.)
