Vehicle & Operator Services Agency (VOSA) Legal Statement

Road Vehicles (Construction & Use) Regulations 1986 as amended specify the minimum levels of light that must pass through the windscreen and front side windows.

The limits are:

  • Motor Vehicles first used on or after 1 April 1985
  • The light transmitted through the windscreen must be at least 75%.
  • The front side windows 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 does not meet legal requirements.

Which windows in the vehicle does this apply to? The windscreen and the front side windows to either side of the drivers’ head.
