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.

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
