Window Tinting Law - Customer Notification
What is excessively tinted glass? Motor vehicles first used before 1st April 1985 must allow at least 70 percent of light to pass through the front windscreen and the front drivers and front passengers doors. Motor vehicles first used on or after 1st April 1985 must allow at least 70 percent of light to pass through the front drivers and front passengers doors and 75 percent of light must pass through the windscreen. If the glass is tinted to a level where less light is transmitted through windows, then the car does not meet the legal requirements.
What is the purpose of glass tinting laws? Glass tinting laws have been administered to ensure that vehicle road users vision are not impaired as a result of excessive vehicle glass tinting.
You must not drive a vehicle on a road with the windscreen or front side door windows tinted against the legal requirements. This will also invalidate your insurance with this modification. Car tinting or glass tinting companies must not install or supply window films to a vehicle that when installed means the vehicle does not comply with Construction & Use Regulations. If you are selling a vehicle with excessive glass tinting on the windscreen or front side windows the vehicle may now have glass that is darker than permitted by
Construction & Use Regulations, so the vehicle should not be sold.
