Fitting tinted windows to your Vehicle - know the law

Various Police forces are working with the 'Vehicle and Operator Services Agency' (VOSA) and cracking down following concerns over the number of vehicles being driven with heavily tinted windscreens and front side windows. These restrict the driver’s vision, especially in dark conditions.

Stopping drivers
Both the police and VOSA are now stopping vehicles with tinted windows and checking the Visual Light Transmission (VLT) through windscreens and side windows. If the light getting through is less than is legally required, the driver may be prohibited from using the vehicle until the tint is removed. Motorists who don’t rectify the problem may be prosecuted.

Tinted Windows information ex VOSA

The legal limits for window tinting are a minimum of:

  • 70 per cent VLT for side windows

  • 75 per cent VLT for windscreens on vehicles first used after April 1985 and

  • 70 per cent VLT for those first used prior to that date

For information leaflets on tinted windows, call VOSA's national number
on 0870 60 60 440
