Under normal conditions, you will be able to hit the road right after your windshield has been repaired or your side window replaced. Please note that a 30-minute wait is recommended after the replacement of a windshield.
The person that will have taken care of the work will tell you if more time is needed.

Can my windshield break into pieces?
It is improbable because the glass of the windshield is protected from breaking into pieces due to the laminated glass and the polyvinyl butyral plastic compound it is made of.
When is it time to repair auto glass damage and replace a windshield?
We can probably repair a windshield if the damage is no bigger than a $1 coin, is not in the way of the driver’s line of vision, and is located at least 4 cm from the rim.
A windshield replacement is the way to go if:
- the damage extends to more than 3 points of impact or if it consists of a crack bigger than a $1 coin
- the damage is an impediment to the driver’s line of vision
- the damage is located less than 4 cm from the rim
