Stay Within The Law with Your Vehicle’s Window Tint: Understanding The UK’s Tinting Regulations


Window tinting is a popular way to add style and privacy to your vehicle, but it’s important to be aware of the laws surrounding it. In this article, we’ll take a look at what the law on window tints is and what it means for you.

Rear Window Tinting

According to the UK GOV website, the rear windows behind the driver and passenger front doors (known as the B Pillar) can legally have any shade of tint applied. The tint’s darkness is measured by its VLT (Visual Light Transmission) percentage, with the maximum legal limit being Limo Black (5%) and the minimum being Light Smoke (50%).

Front Window Tinting

For front door windows, the maximum legal limit is 70% VLT. In many cases, this is very close to the tint already fitted at the factory. Our tints offer additional benefits over factory tints and can give your vehicle a stylish and cohesive look.

The Benefits of Legal Tinting

At Ace Styling, we only install tints that are road legal and within the UK’s tinting regulations. With our tints, you’ll enjoy improved privacy, increased protection from the sun, and a stylish look that complements the rear tints.


By staying within the law, you’ll avoid any legal issues and ensure your vehicle is roadworthy. If you’re unsure about the legal requirements for window tinting, be sure to check the UK GOV website for reference.
