This guide provides information to motorists and tinting companies to make sure they operate within the law.

If your vehicle has got tinted vehicle windows, the front windscreen must let at least 75% of light through and the front side windows 70%.

There are no rules for tinting the rear windscreen or rear passenger windows.
