    Q601: Is it illegal to drive a car with a broken speedometer?

    A vehicle's speedometer must be kept free from any obstruction that may prevent it from being read and shall at all times it is used on a road be maintained in good working order. The only exceptions to this are when:

    • The speedometer became defective during the journey being undertaken, or
    • Steps have been taken to have the defect remedied by replacement or repair as soon as possible.
    • The vehicle has an approved tachograph.
