Your windscreen should pass the mot, if the crack is on the passenger side, aslong as it's not blocking the drivers line of vision.
It should pass
I have a 1997 ford escort, 1.8, 3 door hatchback, i got new screen bout 3yrs ago, cost me 90quid including fittin it.
some company no ones heard of, can't remember there name but im sure you'll find one.
Make sure you have checked out the car before mot, what i do is i go down to a garage and ask for an mot prep, preparing it for mot yeah, so basically they look at it and charge me a tenner, basically they will say whats wrong with it and what needs doing, buying there knowledge, then you know what you gotta do, its cheaper than a retest fee.
Also you can take your car down your local council and they will mot it for you but you have to make an appointment first, this is good because the council men are not on bonus or trying to make money, they just doing there job, so its not very likely you will get done up like a kipper lol
