UK TINT LAW

 

Car Window Tinting Legal Requirements in the UK                                                                          

 

Vehicle & Operator Services Agency (VOSA) Statement

 

The UK Road Vehicles (Construction & Use) Regulations 1986 Act details the legality of window tinting in the UK - and as amended specifies the minimum levels of light that must pass through the windscreen and front side windows.

For a legal window tint in the UK the specifications are: 


a) Motor Vehicles first used on or after 1 April 1985
b) The light transmitted through the windscreen must be at least 75%.
c) The front side windows (to either side of the driversí head) must allow at least 70% of light to be transmitted through them.

If the glass is tinted to a point whereby it lets through less light, the vehicle is breaking UK Window tinting law.

 

The above & current UK law apply to the front windows and windscreen when tinting your car. No laws apply to tint fitted on the rear windows and rear windscreen.

 


 

Our range of glass tint films can also be applied to mini-buses, coaches, trucks, boats & yachts.
