Driveshaft problem on MOT?

I took my clio to Renault Manchester yesterday and they said the car would fail its MOT as the clip on the driveshaft had come off and it could have been damaged due to exposure to the elements.
They offered me 2 options:

1. Add new glip and grease the driveshaft 75
2. Replace the whole driveshaft 350

They said if the driveshaft has been damaged then i may experince a judder when setting off or a noise when turning the wheel full lock.

As I know bugger all about these things can someone tell me whether only doing the cheaper option was a good choice??
