Things you need to know about car window tinting regulations in Queensland
Window tinting laws are different for different territories and states in Australia. Here are a few things you must know before having your car windows tinted in Queensland:
- Window tinting, other than the front windscreen, must have a light transmittance factor of no less than 35% (T35) on the driver’s and passenger front windows.
- Provided the vehicle has a rear vision mirror on each side, it may have window tint of not less than 20% (T20) light transmittance behind the driver’s seating position.
- A goods vehicle may have a luminous transmittance of 0% or more provided the vehicle has a rear vision mirror on each side.
- Film may be applied to factory tinted windows, but when these films are applied to tinted glass, the combination of tints must still allow a minimum light transmittance of 35 per cent (T35) on the driver’s and passenger front windows and 20% (T20) on the rear windows.
- Windscreens can be manufactured from tinted glass provided they have a light transmittance of at least 70 percent for vehicles built before 1971 and 75 percent for later models, but they cannot be tinted using film.
- The exception is a band across the top of the windscreen no lower than a line drawn horizontally across the windscreen at the uppermost points of the vehicles original wiper blade travel, or no more than 10 percent of the windscreen’s area, whichever is the lesser
