Australian Auto Tinting Laws
All Australian States and Territories stipulate maximum darkness, known as the visible light transmission level or VLT, for the aftermarket application of window film on a passenger vehicle's side and rear windows. These laws regulate how dark you can legally tint your car windows - which is why the phrase "darkest legal" is used so often.
As of November 2018, all States/Territories have introduced new requirements for the window behind the driver (windows behind the B pillar). 20% VLT on windows behind the driver is allowed in Queensland.
After-market window film cannot be applied to the windscreen, even if the film is optically clear, except for a visor strip across the top of the screen (which is outside the driver's primary vision area). Each State/Territory stipulates how this visor strip should be measured.
Qld Law Stipulates
Windscreen Tinting may be applied to the upper portion of a windscreen of a motor vehicle. The tinting must not extend lower than a horizontal line connecting the uppermost points of the arcs swept by the vehicle manufacturer’s original wiper blades or the upper 10 percent of the windscreen, whichever is the lesser. The tinting may be of any shade.
Commercial vehicle tinting laws differ in most States and Territories - so ensure you know the rules before you tint a commercial vehicle. Typically, any darkness film is allowed behind the driver in commercial vehicles. ‘Commercial vehicles’ do not mean 4WDs, but rather vehicles registered as a commercial type.
Qld Law Stipulates
A goods vehicle may have a luminous transmittance of 0% or more provided the vehicle has a rear vision mirror on each side.
Vehicle owners failing to comply with tint laws are subject to fines, insurance cancellation and even criminal charges if the vehicle is involved in an accident where dark windows are considered a contributing factor.
Modifying a vehicle with illegally dark windows renders that vehicle unroadworthy.
Car Tint Removal
Mac's Window Tinting highly recommends having film removed by professionals who have the training and the right equipment required for removal of existing window film.
Many online resources explain the process of how to remove window tint, however it is often not as easy as it sounds.
The film is usually comprised of two layers. The top layer usually peels off relatively easy however because this layer has been removed, it makes the removal of the second layer much more difficult. Due to the film being removed improperly it can also result in leaving a sticky reside behind. This makes the surface unsuitable for new film and will require specialised cleaning chemicals to remove properly.
Mac's Window Tinting has a variety of residential/commercial film options to suit your budget and requirements.
